Brown back at Hearts in volunteer role

Billy Brown is back at Heart of Midlothian to help the crisis-stricken club.

The 62-year old former Jambos assistant has returned to his old role to help manager Gary Locke but this time it will be on a volunteer basis in a bid to aid the cash-strapped Edinburgh outfit.

"It's an absolute no-brainer for me," Locke told the club's official website.

"It's not often you get the chance to get someone of Billy's experience and he's offered to come in and help me out during pre-season which is a magnificent gesture.

"I can't do it all on my own and it's obvious I'll need a help, so to have Billy in here is a great help.

"I can't afford to bring in an assistant and it's a measure of the man that Billy was only too willing to help out without getting paid.

"He's someone I obviously know very well and I'm delighted to have him here. We are all in this together."
