Ayr United's managing director has reflected on the 2022/2023 season which had its "disappointing days".

Graeme Mathie spoke in an online interview about the season, which saw the club experience the highs and lows of the Scottish Championship.

The local side sat top of the league during different parts of the season and for a time it looked as if promotion looked likely - but a disappointing end to the campaign saw the side relenquish the top spot before being knocked out of the play-offs by Partick Thistle.

Ayr United managing director Graeme Mathie said: "Over the past 12 months we've been in a position where we've been at the top of the league, we've been winning games, we've been scoring goals, we've had the most wins that the team has had for a number of years and finishing the league season in the highest position that the club has had in over 20 years as well. 

"But we've also had the other side of it where we've had some disappointing days, and I guess unfortunately, when you're involved in football, that is part of the journey, and that is part of what happens, and my job is to make sure I can always take a step back and do as best I can to remove the emotion and look at things coldly. 

"It would be hard to argue that this season hasn't seen a huge amount of progress on and off the park."

Ayr United will return to Somerset Park in July/August as they look once again to attempt to get promoted into the Scottish top flight.
