A fans' fund set up to support Ayr United through financial contributions has surpassed £100,000 in donations.

The AU500, established to help with the playing budget at Somerset Park, hit the milestone with its latest cheque.

A total of £20,000 has been handed over since the end of March alone.
The Fund's Jamie Garrett told the Ayrshire Post: "It's a tremendous moment but we want to keep pushing on.

"Fans have been fantastic in supporting the fund down the years and doing their bit, particularly in recent times.
"The money has never been as vital as it is now.

"If possible, we want to keep the momentum going and raise as much as we can."
The fans' cash has contributed towards a number of deals, including the signing of Rangers full back Jordan Houston on a two-year contract in January.

Around 150 members pay into the Fund on a monthly basis, along with those making one-off donations.
And the Fund has been able to hand over monthly sums of £5,000 while United remain on lockdown.

Club director, Alan Murray, admits that level of support is critical.
He said: "The commitment shown by fans has been fantastic, especially during recent times.

"Fans can rest assured that their level of support is invaluable and appreciated by the whole club.
"Down the years, the Fund has allowed us to go out and get a better quality of player and long may that continue."
