Ayr United have taken another promising Ipswich Town talent to Somerset Road, Corrie Ndaba signing for the Honest Men on loan until the end of the season.

The 21-year-old defender started his career in his native Ireland with Cherry Orchard, where he was picked up by Ipswich Town in 2016. Under contract till the end of next season, Ndaba travels to Ayrshire for regular first-team minutes, having featured four times so far this season.

Honest Men player-manager Kerr said of the transfer: “I have been down and watched Corrie live and also we have watched plenty of footage of him. We also got excellent feedback from the staff at Ipswich and every report on him is very positive.

“With the games coming thick and fast between now and the end of the season we need to make sure we have good defensive options. Corrie is a big, strong, athletic defender who is quick and good on the ball.”


Ndaba will join Ayr’s efforts to push up the Championship table. They currently sit two points outside a promotion play-off spot, Elgin City to come in the Scottish Cup on Saturday. He’s the second Tractor Boy to make a move to Ayr in the last year, Aaron Drinan doing so last January.

Kerr has been hit with a blow before this trip to Elgin, Aberdeen recalling striker Bruce Anderson from his loan stint at Somerset Park.
