Inverness Caledonian Thistle have joined fellow SPFL clubs St Johnstone and Partick Thistle in offering to donate cash back to Hearts from the forthcoming Premiership clash against Hearts.

Gary Locke takes his team to Inverness next Saturday (kick-off 3pm) and the Highlanders will give the 1874 Fighting Fund £5 for every full-paying fan above the average away crowd of 650 for the fixture.

The gesture has been warmly received by Hearts with managing director David Southern saying: “We are very grateful to everyone who is helping Hearts at this time. The gesture from Inverness is another great example of this.

“We are very appreciative of this opportunity and while we know that our own supporters have had to dip into their pockets time and time again, with this being our last game for a fortnight we expect that the £5 cash back offer to Hearts from Inverness is likely to encourage a few more to travel for what is often viewed as one of the best away-days for the fans.”

Inverness chairman Kenny Cameron added: “Having been very impressed with the cash back offer to Hearts from St Johnstone, we discussed doing something similar with David Southern, Hearts’ MD, and are delighted to assist them in any way we can.”
