Irvine Victoria Irvine Victoria FOOTBALL CLUB T he first version of Irvine Victoria was established in 1901 although they did not play a game until New Years Day in 1902. The current version of the club was set up in 1904 when they became a junior club for the first time and they have gone on to put together a history of which they have every right to be proud since then. The club’s most recent silverware came in the 2013-14 campaign when they were crowned champions of the Ayshire District League. They have also established a real affinity with the Ayshire League Cup which they have won on three occasions. From an individual perspective Andrew Clarkson is their leading all time goalscorer having hit the back of the net 144 times for the club. The current group of players will be keen to add to these successes over the coming years. The club plays their home games at 1 Boyle Street and their first team currently competes in the Super League First Division. They are led by the team of Chairman Robert Harvey and M F66V7&WF'FfB6BfRFRwwr7'F&#P
