HISTORY OF PHSC
Portobello Hearts Supporters’ Club was established in 1978, the founder members having originally travelled to away matches on the Tollcross Hearts Supporters Club bus were aware of the potential for running a bus from the Portobello area through friends and acquaintances they had met on their travels.
A meeting was held in the St Johns Club Rooms in Portobello to gauge interest, when this was established, a constitution was drawn up and office bearers elected
The original committee of Billy Stirling, Brian Ramsey, Steuart McCondochie, Alex Howie, and Jimmy Howie, steered the club through its infancy and helped establish the club among the growing number of supporters clubs following HMFC.
Portobello Hearts members have travelled far and wide in their support of the famous Heart of Midlothian on numerous European adventures.
When originally formed Portobello Hearts’ membership was predominantly from the Portobello area. However nowadays they boast members from East & West Lothian, throughout Edinburgh & Fife aswell as the odd 1 or 2
from down south.
They are members of The Federation of Hearts Supporters’ Clubs and run buses to domestic away games with pick-up points in Prestonpans, Whitecraig, Musselburgh, Piershill, Abbeyhill and Haymarket.
