Links between the two clubs go back even further to Penicuik’s first season in 1888 when we met Hearts reserves in the reserve team competition and, following the sudden death of one of Penicuik’s players in 1896, Hearts provided a team to raise funds for the widow and children. Penicuik will be managed by former Penicuik player and Manager Willie Hume who played for and managed Penicuik including captaining them at Hampden in the Scottish Junior Cup Final as well as guiding them to success along with Rab Buchan, winning two league titles. He will be assisted by another former Penicuik player and manager Willie McGinley who oversaw Penicuik’s promotion through the leagues following their return to junior football in 2002.
