Five Grand Fans

Saturday’s match against Forfar Athletic brought three welcome goals and three welcome points as Ayr United strives to bounce back to the Championship at the first time of asking.

There was even more great news as the committee of the AU500 Fund presented a cheque to the club for £5,00,0 a remarkable figure which took the total amount that AU500 Fund has raised to an amazing £12,400 since the fund raising initiative was launched one year ago this month.

Chairman of the fund Ron Withers said “the AU500 Fund was launched last August to give fans of Ayr United the opportunity to support the club even more by making monthly donations to the fund. The committee and the members of the fund are incredibly proud of how much we’ve been able to help the club over the past year and we’d love even more people to join if they can.”

Manger Ian McCall said “the efforts of the AU500 Fund over the past year have been a great help in supporting the playing budget and with our full-time status this season their support is even more significant. I can’t thank the members of AU500 Fund enough for their contributions.”
