Locke calls for unity from sup­port­ers

Evening Times - - FOOTBALL -

GARY LOCKE is­sued a pas­sion­ate ral­ly­ing cry to his fel­low Hearts fans dur­ing a feisty an­nual gen­eral meet­ing at Tynecas­tle.

Hearts owner Ann Budge faced a flurry of ques­tions on a swathe of top­ics in a packed Gorgie Suite yes­ter­day morn­ing, in­clud­ing Craig Levein, the club’s er­rant re­cruit­ment and their dis­mal cam­paign to date.

It prompted Locke – a share­holder and of­fi­cial club am­bas­sador – to plead for unity and urge the fans to get be­hind a squad that is vis­i­bly woe­fully shorn of be­lief.

Ahead of to­day’s visit of Celtic, Locke said: “The big­gest prob­lem we have at the mo­ment, as any­one in­volved in foot­ball will tell you, is con­fi­dence is shot when you have been on the run we have.

“I know it’s tough for us all at the minute but the only way we’ll get out of this mess is by ev­ery sin­gle per­son stick­ing to­gether and that means get­ting be­hind the team that’s play­ing.”
