1928 Scandinavian Tour

On Saturday 19th May 1928 an Ayr United party set out on the clubs first foreign trip, leaving Glasgow by rail to Newcastle before setting sail on a two day trip.  The party disembarked on the Monday morning being welcomed by the local Football Association, the president of which was, ironically, an Aberdonian. 

A fuller (and more interesting, summary of the 1928 tour) can be found in Volume 1 of Duncan Carmichael’s ‘Official History of Ayr United’.

In the first match at Gjoa’s Bislet Stadium, 7,000 spectators saw Nisbet and Smith scoring in a suberb 2-1 win.

Sensationally, on the Thursday, he Honest Men took on the Swedish national side - the first time ever that the Swedish Association had allowed the national side to play a club side, Ayr United being highly honoured in this respect - and a fantastic 3-1 win was obtained by the Honest Men. Again a fuller report of the tour is contained in Duncan Carmichael’s ‘Official History of Ayr United Football Club, volume 2.
