However as the half progressed Arran came back into the game and a good finish from top scorer Archie McNicol before the interval gave the visitors some hope.
The result leaves Arran at the top of the league but they cannot afford to rest on their laurels as they play another big game tomorrow (Sunday) against the in-form Valley Thistle AFC at the Kilbinrnie Ladeside’s ground with a 1.30pm kick off.
Kilbirnie United looked motivated for the game as a few meaty tackles were given out but Arran had the best of the opening chances through Archie McNicol and Toby Wingham.
The 2018 Arran Dairies League was won by a strong Southend team who also wrapped up the season by claiming victory against Brodick in the Copperwheat’s Knockout Cup.
