Ayr United have added two youngsters to their first team pool by promoting them from their Football Academy onto professional contracts. Robbie Crawford, who is 17 and Shaun Kelly at 16, join 7 of their former Youth Team colleagues in Somerset Park manager Brian Reid’s first team squad with 5 of the lads already having sampled first team football.

Reid said, “Robbie and Shaun are inexperienced but I have been impressed by them in training and reserve games. I am looking for the boys to put pressure on the first team players for a place on a Saturday.”

Reid adding, “Developing our own talent is the way Ayr must go and these guys fit the bill perfectly.”
