There were roars of delight  all over Ayr as the Ayr United Football Academy annual October holiday programme kicked off.

For three days, children as young as three years old enjoyed the different drills and fun games at Pro Soccer complex.

Craig Richmond, Football Development Administrator for Ayr United FC said: “There were a lot of talented youths showing off their skills over the three days

“We also had the girl’s side from the Academy here and they had a great time working on different drills and lots of game related practices.”

Spaces are still available on the Academy's term time programme, which runs from October to December. Go to the community page on for further information.
