Hearts FC



Meet the Heart of Midlothian Shareholders' Association...

The Heart of Midlothian Shareholders' Association came into being in its present form almost 30 years ago and exists to advance the interests of Heart of Midlothian FC, to express and represent the views of the shareholders of Heart of Midlothian FC and to provide a social forum for Association members and their guests.

The office bearers and members of the Committee of The Association maintain a regular contact with senior representatives of Heart of Midlothian FC, and the Association also actively interacts with other groups that share our ambitions for Hearts.

We have one representative on the Hearts Youth Development Committee, one on the Hearts Supporters' Trust and two attend the G10 Supporters' Group, where representatives of the club meet with the supporters' groups (The Shareholders' Association, the Supporters' Trust and the Federation of Hearts Supporters' Clubs).

Members are kept up to date with developments from these meetings at our regular monthly dinners that are held throughout the season.


Meetings of the Association are held during the football season in The Gorgie Suite at Tynecastle Stadium, kick-off at 7.15 pm. With the exception of the Annual General Meeting, members' guests are welcome at any meeting. Meetings start with a two-course meal followed by tea/coffee, and feature guest speakers, usually connected to Hearts or the world of football.

Office Bearers and Committee Members are as follows:


Bill Alves


Alison Ross


Sandra Alves

Committee members

Rab Currie (Vice President), Cheryl Coupland, Andy Grant, Lisa Paterson, Graeme Shaw, Ron Smart, Michael Spence, Craig Stewart.



The Association has around three-hundred and fifty members, most live in Scotland but there are also members from further afield in England, Italy, Norway, New Zealand, The Bahamas, and even a few in Leith! All Hearts shareholders, wherever they are, are welcome to join. We will be delighted to hear from you.

The Association issues a monthly newsletter during the season to keep members up to date with what is happening and also has a website www.hmsa.org.uk with information and pictures from past meetings.
