Hearts say a big thank you to John

The Oban Times - - Sport -

AN OBAN man re­ceived a lim­ited edi­tion Heart of Mid­loth­ian foot­ball shirt as a thank you for his con­tin­ued sup­port.

Three years ago when Hearts were strug­gling fi­nan­cially, 8,000 plus supporters de­cided to pledge money ev­ery month to aid their beloved team.

To thank those who helped, the Ed­in­burgh side have cre­ated 10 trib­ute tops with ev­ery­one who pledged named on them.

John Horne was one of the 8,000 fans who do­nated and was one of 10 supporters pre­sented with the shirt at half time dur­ing last Satur­day’s match against Dundee.

John said: ‘I got a phone call from the club to say I was one of the lucky 10 who will be pre­sented with their shirts on the pitch at Tynecas­tle. Both my boys were with me on the hal­lowed turf.’

THANKS: Oban Jambo John Horne with sons Ruar­idh and Innes along with Hearts leg­end John Robertson, who pre­sented John with his Foun­da­tion of Hearts trib­ute shirt dur­ing last Satur­day’s SPL

game at Tynecas­tle against Dundee.
