AYRSHIRE FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION

This association met at Kilmarnock last night – Mr. Yuille, Irvine, in the chair.

Stevenston Thistle protested against the Parkhouse win on the ground that the referee was incompetent, and awarded a goal after the whistle had been blown for a foul.

The referee attended, and explained that the whistle was blown by an outsider. Stevenston left the field fifteen minutes before time was up.

It was agreed by the casting vote of the chairman, to dismiss the protest, but to return 10s lodged.
