14th July 2014

Club legend to combine coaching of U17s with position in commercial department.

Heart of Midlothian FC is pleased to announce that legend John Robertson will continue working for the club in a unique dual capacity.

The Jambos' record league goalscorer will coach the U17s at the Football Academy at Riccarton and will combine that role with the position of Business Development Executive in the commercial department at Tynecastle.

Last season saw Robbo assist with the coaching of the first team squad and he's delighted to continue his association with the club.

Speaking to Hearts News, he said: "This is an exciting opportunity for me as the club moves forward. We are rebuilding from scratch and I am pleased to be part of the set-up.

"On the playing side of things, I'll be working with the U17s and trying to prepare them for their ultimate progression into full-time football.

"My commercial remit is to go out and meet potential new customers as well as visiting the businesses which have been staunchly loyal to the club in recent times.

"Hopefully I can help develop some important revenue streams which will assist Hearts as we move forward with optimism into an exciting new era."
