Cochrane over the moon

25th September 2021

Alex Cochrane admits he didn’t know what to do after he bagged his first Hearts goal in today’s 3-0 win over Livingston.

The wing-back scored the Jambos third as the boys in maroon brushed aside Livi to maintain their unbeaten start to the cinch Premiership campaign.

His first ever senior goal, Alex revealed his delight whe the ball hit the back of the net and hopes it’s the first of many more.

Speaking to Hearts TV, he said: “My eyes lit up. I just thought it my head ‘keep this on target and it’s going to be a goal’.

“When the ball went in I didn’t really know what to do with myself. I was just over the moon. It was a great feeling and hopefully there is more to come.

“I’m very happy to get the win, to get my first goal.

“All round a very positive performance and I think today everything clicked for us and that’s really good because on the training pitch we’ve been working really hard. Everything came together today.”
