Ardrossan is a town in Ayrshire, Scotland. The first formal football match in Ardrossan was played on 13 September 1874 at Clutha Park, a field between Glasgow Street and Paisley Street, in what is now Young Street. That first team was called Ardrossan Football Club and was one of several founded then disbanded before the town's current and longest-lasting club, Ardrossan Winton Rovers, was formed in 1900. This website gives details of these clubs. The original title was Ardrossan Football Clubs 1874 - 1879 but that has changed with time. It is hoped that the last year of the name will continue to change as more information is added.
