1973 Home Match
Season 1973/74 saw Ayr once again start in the first division and once again in the Texaco Cup bagging a first round tie against Leicester City, Peter Shilton and all.

Unlike the previous season when Ayr had a tremendous win over Newcastle, Leicester were a very in form side. Despite this Ayr produced a

Away Leg
tremendous display in the first leg and a 1-1 draw at Somerset Park was well earned. This result gave hope and United headed for Filbert Street for the second leg.

1988 Friendly
A superb display from United was not enough and the night ended in a 2-0 defeat at Filbert Street.

Programmes were produced for both these Texao Cup matches with Leicester City publishing a landscape design.

United also played Leicester City in a friendly match on 4th August 1988 at Somerset Park, a match which finished 4-2 for the English side.
