Walking Football - 3rd in League
« on: November 24, 2017, 15:21:36 »
Ayr United FA’s Walking Football Team national programme at ravenscraig.

Ayr United FA’s Walking Football Team yesterday completed their games programme in the National League at Ravenscraig, Motherwell hosted by North Lanarkshire Leisure.

The inaugural National League was organised over a 6 month period under the auspices of Walking Football Scotland who will shortly launch their new and exciting website.
Walking Football Scotland can however presently be found on Facebook and Twitter for press releases and emerging developments.

During the National League Programme Ayr United have competed against teams from Heart of Midlothian, Greater Glasgow, Gala Fairydean, Tullibody, Fife, Stenhousemuir, Stirling and North Lanarkshire. Going into yesterday’s last set of fixtures the Honest Men trailed Gala Fairydean by 5 points meaning three wins were  required from Ayr and a ‘helping hand’ from others to have a chance of finishing third.

As football often defies logic and is certainly never a Science the inevitable happened! Ayr won all three games defeating North Lanarkshire 3-2, Stenhousemuir 6-0 and Stirling 6-1.

A maximum 9 points for Ayr with an excellent 12 goals to up their goal difference substantially the only question remaining was, How would Gala Fairydean fair with their set of fixtures?

Three defeats was the resounding answer as Ayr moved into a final league position of 3rd by leap frogging their more fancied opponents.
A very creditable standing in their first season at National Level and a good platform for next season.
Team manager Gary McLaughlin deserves much praise for his excellent handling of the team during the season and managing the highs and lows of a veterans’ football journey.

Gary was delighted with the team’s last day performances and was a happy man yesterday afternoon making his way back to Ayr in the team bus. Gary as always was quick to praise his players for their efforts over the season and delighted the team reached the higher echelons in the league standings.

The Honest Men :
Stuart Galloway, Lindsay Easton, Drew Boyd, Brian Pitt, David Reid, Chris Fleming, Tom Dowman, Harry Harvie, Calum Campbell, Ian Mason, David Neal, Graeme Shirra, Davie Howie and John Crawford.
