Hearts fans claim to be the only professional football club in Scotland’s capital – rivals Hibernian actually being located in the neighbouring town of Leith.
Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond is a supporter and Britain’s greatest cyclist Sir Chris Hoy often wears a Hearts scarf. Their favourite football team was founded in 1874 by a group of friends from the Heart of Midlothian Dancing Club – hence the name.
The Jam Tarts (Scots rhyming-slang?) had a lot of success in their early years winning four Scottish Cups in fifteen years from 1891 to 1906 as well as being Scottish champions in 1895 and 1896.
Then nothing until 1954 when former player Tommy Walker was appointed manager. Under Walker’s leadership Hearts were Scottish champions in 1958 and 1960 and Scottish Cup winners in 1956 and also won the Scottish League Cup four times.
The club’s most recent successes came in the late 1980s and early 1990s – in 1986 Hearts were 7 minutes away from winning the league. Needing only a draw from their last game away at Dundee the Jambos lost and the title went to Celtic. Hearts were to finish as runners-up again in 1988 and 1992.
