Happy birthday, Norrie!

29th October 2014

1962 League Cup winner celebrates 80th birthday in style with club legend Robbo.

Former Hearts star Norrie Davidson celebrated his 80th birthday yesterday – and was delighted when club legend John Robertson paid him a surprise visit.

Norrie netted the Jambos’ winner in the 1962 Scottish League Cup Final victory over Kilmarnock at Hampden Park and enjoyed going down memory lane with Robbo at his Edinburgh home as the pair shared tales from years gone by.

The League Cup hero was presented with a Hearts top and a card from CEO Ann Budge.

Norrie's daughter Ann said: "We want to thank Hearts so much for the birthday gift for Norrie. The visit really made his day. He went to the pub for the first time in three years and all he talked about was Hearts - we hadn't seen him like that in a long time so many thanks to everyone for organising the surprise."
