Collin Meldrum: “Thought Edwards was brilliant what we’ve needed all season a box to box MF.player that can score....hickey brilliant. We played well today IMO ..... HHGH.”
William Sutherland: “Hickey was fantastic how wrong I was to think he was to lightweight for today’s game. Another I thought who played really well was Edwards. On today’s showing well worth a contract.”
David Wood: “They did their very best. I’m proud of my team too.”

Christina Taylor: “ Very proud of my team. They did their best and made a great game of it.”
Robert Borthwick: “Bit of a heartbreaker that! Played great for 94 out of 95 minutes. Two mistakes and there goes the cup. Have to say, Aaron Hickey was the best player on the park. Composed, decisive, unfazed. Great potential and one who really deserved a winners medal today.”
Maureen Cummings: “Well done Hearts you done Edinburgh proud. Plenty proud Hearts fans on their way home.”
Elizabeth Thomson: “Well not quite the walk in the park the Celtic fans and most TV commentators thought it would be. The minute that penalty went in the writing was sadly on the cards. But on a brighter note we did get our day at the final which is more than our city rivals.
