Ayr United have awarded Martyn a Testimonial year to mark his 10 years of service to the Club and Sunday’s event organised by his Testimonial committee drew a crowd of over 120 and raised over £1000.
Martyn was joined by his wife Katrina, children Rebekah and Ryan and other family members and friends along with a great turnout of fans, current 1st team members and former players including his brother Mark, Ryan Stevenson, Scott McLaughlin, Robert Connor and Robert Reilly.
Manager Ian McCall and Managing Director Lewis Grant officially opened the Testimonial year with speeches, and the ceremonial cake was then cut. Somerset Boab was in great form all day and entertained the crowd over the following 3 hours, and among the 45 young fans in attendance he has got a few new followers who joined in with his popular tunes.
A magnificent buffet was served and all young fans received a goody bag and participated in a colouring in competition. A successful raffle and auction were also held.
The day was very kindly sponsored by Lynsey and Jim McNamee who have also been Martyn’s player sponsors since he arrived at the Club. Martyn presented Lynsey with flowers to thank her for her backing over the years.
Testimonial chairman Steven Maguire thanked everyone for their attendance and support and confirmed that other Testimonial activities will include a match in pre season and a Sunday brunch to close the activities on 20th September. More details on both events will be announced very soon.
