The draw has been made for the 2021 Ayrshire Handicap League Championship.
With 29 clubs entering the competition this year, the teams have been drawn into six qualifying sections of four clubs and one of five clubs.
As some usually available weeks are very likely to be lost due to COVID restrictions, scheduling for matches will be tight this year, but with flexibility and co-operation from all competing clubs it is hoped that the competition can be successfully completed this year.
Matches will be played, home and away, over the summer months with the section winners and best runner up progressing to knockout stages, culminating in the final at Kilmarnock (Barassie) during Finals day on Sunday 5th September.
Details will be forwarded to all nominated club representatives in the next few days to allow them to get arrangements for fixtures in place at an early stage.
The draw for the seven qualifying sections is:-
SECTION A – Turnberry, West Kilbride, Moorpark, Kilbirnie Place
SECTION B – Ayr Dalmilling, Kilmarnock (Barassie), Rowallan Castle, Ardeer
SECTION C – Ballochmyle, Ayr Belleisle, Loudoun, Portmann
