West of Scotland Cup Runners Up
Hurlford United were formed in 1912. We are a Scottish junior football team, currently playing in WOSFL Premier Division (SFA Tier 6) after having played in the final seven seasons the SJFA West Region Premiership, until it was disbanded due to all its members moving into the SFA National Pyramid. Our home ground is Blair Park, our club colours are red and white and our nickname is "The Ford".
In 1972/73 season, the club won the "double" of Ayrshire League and Ayrshire Cup and the 2013/14 season saw arguably the club's finest moment as, for the first time we lifted the Scottish Junior Cup, beating Glenafton Athletic 3-0 in the final at Rugby Park, Kilmarnock.
That Junior Cup victory gained us entry to the Senior Scottish Cup the following season. Our first ever game in that competition was a 2-2 draw at home to Edinburgh University. We won the replay 5-0 and beat Inverness Clachnacuddin and Inverurie Locos to reach the 3rd Round. After a 1-1 draw against Stirling Albion at Blair Park, we eventually fell 13-12 on penalties after a 2-2 draw at Forthbank Stadium.
In the 2015/16 season the Ford won the Ardagh Glass League Cup, finished 2nd in the Super Premier Division, were runners up in the West of Scotland Cup and reached the semi final of the Scottish Junior Cup for the third season in a row.
In the 2017/18 season the Ford reached the final of the Scottish Junior Cup for the second time. They were leading 2-1 in the 88th minute through goals from Ross Robertson and Paul McKenzie; however heartbreak ensued when Auchinleck Talbot snatched victory with two very late goals. The team showed great spirit to after this defeat, by bouncing back to win the West of Scotland Cup for the first time by beating Beith Juniors on penalties in the final after the match at Meadow Park, Irvine was tied 2-2 at full-time.
The Ford started the 2018/19 season winning their first elevan league matches, however by the end of the season it was only enough to finish 2nd in the Super Premier Division for the third time, and they reached the semi final of the Scottish Junior Cup for the fifth season in six, losing narrowly to Largs Thistle over two legs.
The 2019/20 season was cut short due to COVID-19, but not before United had reached the Scottish Junior Cup quarter-final where they were due to play Auchinleck Talbot; however this match never took place.
