The Academy is delighted to announce the signing of forward Owen McGinty this week who will play in the first instance for the Under 18s.
Owen who hails from Largs recently made his full debut for Ayr Utd 18s against Dundee FC and capped a fine performance with an assist for the winning goal. Owen has proved to be a prolific goal scorer over the years starting at Crosshouse BC where he notched 135 goals in one season.
Owen then moved on to sign for Rangers FC where he again proceeded on the goal trail.
Owen netted 12 goals v Celtic FC in 5 games including a hat trick in the Glasgow Cup at Lennoxtown. Owen was also a member of a Rangers side which won the coveted Youdan Youth Trophy at Bramall Lane, Sheffield.
Owen also has the distinction of scoring 2 hat tricks against Northern Ireland when playing for Rangers.
We look forward to seeing Owen producing positive performances this season for Ayr with of course a ‘few goals’ thrown in for good measure!!
