TITLE-chasing United will celebrate what they hope will be a glorious season at a special bash next month.

The Player of the Year awards will be held in the Carlton Hotel in Prestwick on Saturday, April 14 and will begin at 7.30pm.

And not only will gongs will be given out, but the home and away strips for season 2018-19 will also be unveiled and should be a fantastic addition to the event.

The club are branching out from the usual venue of the Hospitality Suite to the hotel as demand for tickets is expected to be so high.

It has been a landmark season, with 102 goals already scored and now fans are desperately hoping they can crown it by celebrating a title win at Somerset Park for the first time since 1997.

Live professional function band Audioclass will be performing on the evening and are sure to keep everyone entertained until closing time.

United Commercial manager Graeme Miller said: "We have had no option but to change venue for our player of the year awards as we can only get around 70 fans in when we hold it in our own hospitality suite."

"The Carlton Hotel have been great with us from the start and there will be numerous drinks promotions on the night and for any fans that would like to stay in the hotel then discounted rates are available at £100 for a triple room, £80 for a double and £65 for a single. All these rates include breakfast and if you would like to book please contact the Carlton and let them know you are attending the event.

This event should be the pinnacle of every season and we are now able to have 250 of our players, staff and supporters in the one place. It should be a special night and one I am hugely looking forward to.”

Tickets are now on sale in the club shop.

Voting information will be available in due course and keep an eye out for Ayr United Media's goal of the season competition.
