Moorey signs new deal

Ayr United are delighted to announce that Craig Moore has signed an 18 month extension to his current contract which runs until January.

The deal means that Craig will be at Somerset Park until at least the end of the 2020/21 season.

‘Moorey’ first signed for United on loan from Motherwell in 2015. Since then he has scored an impressive 51 goals in 122 appearances for the club including 27 during the title winning season 2017/18.

Manager Mark Kerr said :”It is extremely important to get this over the line because we know that others were interested in Moorey. Obviously he had a tough time with injury towards the end of last season but then he worked extremely hard over the Summer and throughout this season to be able to get back onto the pitch at the end of September. He got his first start against Morton and scored and then followed it up with a double the following week. We know what he brings to the team both on the pitch and in the dressing room and to get him tied up for 18 months means we are starting the planning for next season as well. We are only a couple of weeks away from January and are very hopeful of further strengthening the squad.”
