It’s 100% pivotal every club has equipment in place ahead of the new season. If the proper precautions and safety measures aren’t taken — football will not be able to restart in August.
This donation by James Anderson will prove a timely boost. Ann Budge brought this to the forefront and with reconstruction on the table, if Hearts were to be spared relegation, it could be seen as a sweetener. Hopefully, there was no strings attached to the donation.
