McCall KOs Jags
Ayr boss staying put
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
