Howard Jefferson and Malcolm Renny – Ayr CC

WDCU is sad to report the passing of Howard Jefferson and Malcom Renny. Both were past presidents of the club and gave a lot of time and energy for the betterment of the club. They were regular supporters and could be seen most weekends at Cambusdoon, old and new, supporting the teams. Thoughts go to both families at this sad time.
