Home is Hearts, says Boyce16 December 2022
The Belfast boy has been a smash hit in the capital since arriving from Burton Albion in January 2020 – notching 35 goals for the Maroons and playing a key role in our promotion push in 2020/21 and our relentless romp to third in 2021/22.
Asked why Tynecastle was to remain home for the next 12 months, Liam explained that he felt perfectly at home playing for the club.
“There was a bit of interest as I came into my last season, but I always knew that I wanted to stay,” he told Hearts TV.
“My family is settled here and my daughter is in school. I’ve enjoyed every minute of my time here over the last three years and been able to play well along with feeling like a big part of the team. I’m glad it’s sorted and now I’m fully focused on getting back.
“I’ve always said that this is the biggest club I’ve played for. Even in my very first game where I scored against Rangers, the atmosphere was amazing right from the start. The stadium, where we’re training, and seeing all the hard work and progress we’ve made over the last three years.
“To see us grow as a team, from being demoted along with the way we play – it all just suits me as a player. It’s great to be a part of this, and hopefully be here for as long as possible.
“Everyone wants to win something, and we’ve gone close a couple of times now. I would love to win a trophy and have something to celebrate with the fans. Like I said, the transformation that the club has done in my time has been incredible.
“We want to keep getting better and better.”
