A new book detailing the proud history of Ayr United's stadium has been published.

"Old Lady Somerset" delves into the world of Somerset Park - from historical attempts of eviction to the modifications of the playing field.

Written by the club's historian Duncan Carmichael, and published by Kennedy & Boyd, Ayr's Waterstones on High Street will be hosting a signing event for those who wish to get their hands on the book and talk to the author.

A spokesperson said: "Old Lady Somerset is a fiercely stubbon old bird.

"In her lifetime she has successfully resisted five attempts at eviction. Within living memory that are two aborted attempts to relocate to Heathfield.

"This book is not about football pe se, it is a study of Somerset Park, detailing modifications great and small.

"Old lady Somerset is not averse to enjoying a spin."
