Tiff made his first competitive start for Ayr United against Airdrie United at Recreation Park, Alloa.[5] After quickly establishing himself at the Right-back position, he signed a deal to stay at the Honest Men until 2012. Tiffoney scored an own goal in the Play-off Final at Glebe Park against Brechin City. Tiffoney scored his first goal for United against Raith Rovers at Somerset Park in the Boxing Day fixture.[6] At the end of the 2011-12 season, Tiffoney was given the official 'Young Player of the Year' by the club, voted by the clubs supporters.[7]
