WHITE STAR FOOTBALL CLUB 1884-93
The Ardrossan and Saltcoats Heralds of 11 and 18 April 1884 carried the reports
SALTCOATS ALMA 1 - ARDROSSAN
WHITE STAR 1
These teams met on the ground of the former on Saturday last (5 April 1884)
and, after a hard and well-contested game, resulted in a draw, one goal each.
ARDROSSAN WHITE STAR 4
- ARDROSSAN RANGERS 1
Ardrossan White Star was apparently
founded in 1884 and played only two reported games that year.
These teams met on Saturday last (12 April 1884) to play a friendly game at
football which resulted in a victory for the White Star by four goals to one.
White Star was not found in any documents until the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald
of 3 March 1893 carried the report below.
ARDROSSAN BOYS' BRIGADE 5 - ARDROSSAN WHITE STAR 2
A match between the Ardrossan Boys' Brigade and a team from the Ardrossan
Academy, named the White Star, was played at Ardrossan last Saturday (25 February
1893) and ended in a win for the Brigade youths by five goals to two.
It is uncertain if the two White Star teams were linked and if the first one had
a connection to Ardrossan Academy.
