IN a season when home-grown youngsters are helping keep the club alive, the Hearts Youth Development Committee (HYDC) are relaunching their monthly draw.
HYDC raises over £50,000 a year for the club’s academy and paid Kevin McHattie’s transfer fee from Dunfermline Athletic in 2010.
“I wouldn’t have been able to come to Hearts had it not been for HYDC,” said the defender, pictured right. “Hopefully, supporters will recognise the brilliant job HYDC do and feel able to sign up to the monthly draw.”
Director of football John Murray added: “Without [HYDC] we wouldn’t have a team on the pitch right now, I am sure of it. I know supporters have been asked to repeatedly dig deep in recent times, but hopefully they see how important a funding stream like this is to Hearts.”
