Hearts say a big thank you to John
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.
