WHITLETTS VICTORIA SEEK NEW COMMITTEE MEMBERS/CHANGE OF CLUB COLOURS

Ayr’s junior football club, Whitletts Victoria, are looking for new members to join the Club committee as they look to progress to the next level of the junior game. After consolidating itself in the West Region Championship last season, the Club is about to celebrate its’ 75th anniversary this year and is looking for people with the time, commitment, skills and desire, to help take the Club to the next level in its’ development.

Chairman John Dalton said “As a Club we have come far both on and off the park in recent years and are now an established club in the second tier of junior football. This has been achieved through the hard work of a small committee and now we need an injection of new blood and new ideas to help take us forward to the next level.”

“It is an exciting time for the Club following the creation of our charity ‘Vics in the Community’ which is doing so much good work in the local community. We are also in discussions with South Ayrshire Council about a proposed move to a new stadium in Whitletts which we hope to achieve in time for the start of the 20/21 season.”

“Meanwhile on the park, we comfortably consolidated our place in the West Region Championship last season and under the guidance of Peter Leonard, are looking to build on that with the aim of achieving promotion to the Premiership and competing regularly against the big names in the junior game.”

“We are looking for people who have an interest in football and the local community to come on board and help out as committee members or volunteers, to bring new, fresh ideas to help develop the Club to take us forward. In particular we’d like people from the local business community to come forward and bring their skills and business acumen to help grow and develop the Club as well as volunteers who have the time, commitment and skills set to help out in a variety of roles.”

“Anyone interested can contact me on 07759637350."

Meanwhile John also confirmed that for one season only, the club will revert to a blue and white strip for next season as they celebrate their 75th anniversary.

“The Club played its’ first match against Ayr Newton Rovers in August 1944 and its’ original club colours were blue shirts and white shorts. They were still the club colours when the Club played in front of 20,100 people in the semi final of the Scottish Junior Cup at Shawfield in 1956 and when they won the Western League (South) Championship in 1958.”

“We think that sometime around the late 70’s or 80’s the Club changed it’s colours to the now familiar red and black stripes but we thought that for one season only, it would be good to recognise the Clubs’ origins and revert to a new kit which will feature a blue shirt and white shorts.”
