I don't really understand why Dunfermline didn't just use the furlough scheme for another month unless paying the 20% was even proving too much. Should just have whored Kevin Nisbet to one of the old firm to get enough for the 20%

Imagine if as much time over the last two months had been spent on the "sporting integrity" of protecting the livelihoods of those that play the game rather than trying to get a desired outcome for certain clubs.

I fear that all Ayr United, as many other clubs - and sadly many businesses - are doing is delaying the inevitable.

Moore, Houston and McCowan are the only players who have deals beyond this this summer - correct?

AUFC Talk / Ayr Utd Extend players contrac...

The press release or report below is really good positive news and may help keep the balance of the team next season whenever that is.

I feel it's the right and decent thing to do instead of Dunfermline statement who just released 17 players whose contracts end.


Daily Record Press -

QuoteAyr United are to keep out of contract stars on their books for another month, the club has confirmed.

Players whose Somerset Park deals were set to expire at the end of next week will now be paid through June.

Club chiefs will utilise the UK Government's extended furlough scheme to pay affected players 80 per cent of their salaries.

A United spokesman said tonight that "standing by the players is the right thing to do".

They told the Ayrshire Post: "We want to look after them as much as we possibly can and the extension to the furlough scheme hopefully allows us to do that.

"By extending contracts into June, we are standing by the players at what is clearly a very difficult time.

"If we can use this scheme to assist then not only can we keep the squad together that bit longer, we can help the boys out at a vital time."

AUFC Talk / Season Ticket Refund...

Voice of reason posted this on Twitter :
QuoteAyr to offer season ticket holders partial refunds for home games missed in the 19/20 campaign.

I think this is a really good gesture and shows appreciation of the fans but I would like to think most season ticket holders will not actually claim the refund, but no disrespect to those who wish to claim.

Update on the status and draw extended as Andy is currently signing the boots.

QuoteAndy Walker 1999 boots raffle update.
144 tickets sold, raising £720 to be passed onto AU 500 Fund. Thank you to everyone who has contributed.
Andy Walker is in process of signing the boots, but it's taking a bit longer than hoped so draw will be pushed back to Saturday 23rd May.
With a little more time, let's try to get to £1000. If we can sell another 56 tickets to reach that target, I'll add some small consolidation prizes for 2nd & 3rd!

All this reconstuction business has really bored me to the point i cant be bothered about it.Saying that i feel for thistle as i actually like them and its unfair when they were within safety with a game in hand.However the question im asking is after seeing rangers "legend" barry ferguson spouting something why did he hurredly move all his money and assets into his wifes name if the ebt payments scandal was legal ?.That was round the time they won loads but was it by cheating and having an unfair advantage ?what were the findings?would have loved us to beeen awarded the league cup
