ayrunited_crestAyr United were formed in 1910 (not 1877 as shown in the Esso New badgeCollection Football of 1970. 

The badge has been with the club in different guises since then but in 2015 a complaint by a member of the public to the ‘Lord Lyon of Scotland’ launched an investigation of the badge and their decision the badge contravenes the Lyon King of Arms Act of 1672.

The Act says that we have to "escheat to  his Majestie all the moveable goods and geir upon which the said armes  are engraven."

Looks like we will all be locked up in the Tolbooth.

If it wasn't so serious it would be laughable.  The new badge was announced after a vote by supporters on 18th April 2017. The new badge will be in use from 1st July 2017.
