The red- hot form of Ayr United is help­ing “re­unite” the town, says Ian McCall.

The boss praised grow­ing num­bers for pour­ing through the turn­stiles as Ayr’s fast start to the sea­son con­tin­ued.

More than 2200 home fans watched Ayr ease past Dundee United on Satur­day.

It marks a huge up­lift from just 600 who watched the fi­nal game of the Mark Roberts regime be­fore McCall was ap­pointed.

And he said: “The town of Ayr has been through a lot of hurt dur­ing the last few decades. But we’re now start­ing to see a great up­take at the gates and it’s fan­tas­tic.

“I have banged on about home crowds since the day I ar­rived here.

“But that’s be­cause I know the dif­fer­ence they can make at Som­er­set and what this club is ca­pa­ble of achiev­ing.

“If we can get over 2500 home fans in here it will be bril­liant.”

Ayr main­tained their 100 per cent home record with Satur­day’s win.

They have won all six of their games at Som­er­set this sea­son.

McCall said: “It’s great, the old place is be­com­ing a bit of a fortress again so long may it con­tinue.

“And the fans are play­ing their part in that.”

Cheer we go United fans
