SMiSA has learned that in honour of the Scottish Cup 5th Round tie between Ayr United & St. Mirren at Somerset Park this Saturday, 5th February, Ayr Racecourse are staging what has been billed as a "Black & White Party" for fans of both clubs.
The doors to the Eglinton Stand open on Saturday at 12 noon and the event will go on until 2.45pm so that both sets of fans will be able to make the kickoff time at 3pm with the stadium very close to the course (approx 2 mins walking distance). Bars, betting and free parking facilities are available, and children are welcome. There will also be 'Giant TV's tuned in to the sports channels and food will be available.
As part of the event, the Racecourse are planning to donate a cheque to the Ayr United Supporters Trust (Honest Men Trust) and they have also kindly made an offer to St. Mirren of donating raceday hospitality packages for the club to have as website competition prizes.
All told, this venture should add to what will hopefully be an exciting cup trip for Saints fans this weekend.
