9/1 Hearts Scoop William Hill Scottish Cup…8/1 For Next Year

Hearts won the William Hill Scottish Cup, after defeating Hibernian 5-1. Hearts were the pre tournament third favourites at 9/1 and we well fancied at 6/5 to win the match in 90 minutes. Hills now make the 2012 winners 8/1 to win next year’s tournament while defeated finalists Hibs are 33/1.

“The turning point was the penalty, no doubt and Hibs were always looking to struggle from there, but Hearts remained professional and got the job done,” said Hill’s spokesman Tony Kenny.

Over the course of the sponsorship, Hills have taken the Scottish Cup all over Scotland visiting the length and breadth of the country from Coldstream to Wick in the first round before embarking on a tour that took in Alloa, Wigtown , Bladnoch, Stranraer, Peterhead, Edinburgh and many many more.

“It’s been a fantastic journey to this year’s Hampden with plenty of upsets along the way and we cannot wait for next year’s competition to start,” said Hill’s spokesman Tony Kenny.

Stream Hoping To Make Waves In William Hill Scottish Cup

Coldstream have started their William Hill Scottish Cup journey earlier than any other team in the first round of the competition. The team from the Borders region set off on their marathon 600 mile round-trip to Wick on Friday morning in high spirits.

The Captain John Crawford is relishing the trip to Wick “It’s really exciting for us to be heading up to the Highlands. We have a lot of new players in the team and it’ll be a great bonding exercise for the lads.”

“Wick might be 300 miles away in distance, but we don’t think there’ll be too much difference on the pitch.”

William Hill, the Scottish Cup sponsors, have supplied a luxury coach for the team to travel up to the game and the Streamers Chairman Steve Wright was thrilled with the gift from the new Cup sponsors. ‘It was a really nice gesture by William Hill to put on the coach for us. It’s a mammoth trip up to the Highlands and it’s nice to be travelling up in a bit of luxury.

‘We haven’t the best record in the Scottish Cup, but we’re hopeful of getting a positive result against a very good Wick team. The bookies don’t fancy our chances, but we hope they’re proved wrong.’

Wick are the 1/4 favourites with the sponsors who make Coldstream 6/1 – with the draw on offer at 9/2.

‘Coldstream have lost 18 of their last 20 Scottish Cup ties – so the omens don’t look too good for the Streamers,’ said William Hill spokesman Tony Kenny, ‘However, they’re a young squad and they’ll go to Wick without any fear of the Highlanders.’

‘The odds suggest a Wick victory, but so far our punters are betting on the draw.’

The trip to Coldstream was the third leg of the William Hill Scottish Cup visits. The SFA and William Hill are taking the Cup on a tour of the country and giving the real fans a chance to get their hands on the oldest Cup trophy in Association football.

On Wednesday, the Cup was in Fort William in the Highland’s where the Fort were due to play Boness United. Unfortunately this game has been postponed.

On Thursday, the Cup went to the William Hill shop in Galashiels ahead of the big Borders derby clash between Gala Fairydean and Hawick Royal Albert in Selkirk. The region which is traditionally a rugby area, but football will be the focus of attention tomorrow afternoon when the more than local pride will be at stake.
