Quote from: undefinedOur Player of the Year Awards 2020 were due to be held on Saturday April 25th at Arthur St Kitchen.
Due to Covid19 this event is unable to take place.
The current situation is hugely challenging for everyone ; our supporters, our sponsors, local business, and our football club. It leaves us in an extremely difficult predicament and we need our supporter's help now more than ever.
The financial implications to our football club of the current shut-down cannot be overstated.
Not only will we not have any income from home games for the foreseeable future, but we have had to cancel one of our main fundraising events of the season as well.
Commercial Manager Graeme Miller said :"We have a great need to raise funds due to this unprecedented situation however we wanted to come up with a way that would not just benefit ourselves, but also one of our sponsors and would be a unique opportunity for our fans to support the club.
Obviously our Player of the Year event can no longer take place however we are still going to sell tickets for it. For every ticket sold we will give a donation to Arthur St Kitchen, one of our main sponsors who are also being badly affected by the cancellation.
Buying a ticket also gives you a vote for your Player of the Year 2019/20 and Young Player of the Year 2019/20. When the votes are collated we will then buy all our trophies from Reid's Trophies, another big supporter of the club, and when possible present them to the players.
Finally every person that buys a ticket will receive one of these limited edition T Shirts.
These will never be for sale in the shop and only those buying a ticket will receive one.
When buying a ticket please use the box provided to give your vote for Player of the Year and Young Player of the Year and also the size of the T shirt you would like. Also you are able to purchase multiple tickets and if you choose to do so please note the different sizes of T shirts you would like."
We will keep this open to the end of April and we will order T Shirts on a weekly basis. Any help you can give us at this time would be hugely appreciated. To buy a ticket for the event please click here
Players eligible for Young Player of the Year are Ross Doohan, Daniel Harvie, Sam Roscoe, Luke McCowan, Jordan Houston, Stephen Kelly, Aaron Drinan and Connor Malley.
We would like to place our thanks to anyone able to help us in this difficult time. Further ways of supporting the club will be announced in the near future.
QuoteAyr United are delighted to announce that Hummel will be the new kit provider from the start of the 2020/21 season.
We have signed a club record multi-year deal which will include at least one completely Bespoke strip per season made for us by the Hummel design team.
Gary Bright, Head of Teamsport, Hummel UK & Ireland added ;"Hummel are thrilled to become technical kit supplier to Ayr United alongside our retail partner Football 1st. We take great pride and passion in everything we do as a brand, and we look forward to working closely with the club and fans, to offer quality Hummel product that everyone will be proud to be associated with."
After many years using Adidas we decided the time was right to change and offer our supporters some great value with a World Class brand.
We explored many options and the quality of the Hummel product and their desire to work with Ayr United made the decision for us.
We will again be in partnership with Football 1st for the supply of the Hummel kit and leisurewear, and both parties are delighted to continue this long standing relationship.
Our partnership with Bitcoin SV also continues for next season and we are hugely appreciative of their support. Bitcoin SV is a digital currency that scales to enterprise level and offers very low-fee micro-transactions. In short, Bitcoin SV is Bitcoin."
The new 2020/21 Ayr United home strip will be released and available for pre order later today.
