Stenhousemuir have been named as one of a number of football clubs still owed cash by Hearts.

The Edinburgh club was placed in administration in June, and it was revealed on Wednesday that it owes £28.5 million to various creditors.

The sum owed to the Warriors is believed to be £12,000 related to signings of players Jack and Colin Hamilton, who moved to Tynecastle in 2009 but have yet to make their first team debuts.

The cash is owed to Stenny in recognition of the money they spent developing the players, who both signed on at Ochilview when they were just boys club players.

Other clubs owed cash by the Jambos include Ayr United, Kaunas, Liverpool, Musselburgh Athletic, Livingston and Rangers.

Meanwhile, Stenhousemuir boss Martyn Corrigan will be looking for his side to progress in another cup competition after dispatching Arbroath last weekend when they travel to play Airdrieonians in the first round of the League Cup on Saturday.

“Airdie might have dropped down from the First Division, but they’ve kept a strong squad and they will not be push overs,” he told Heraldsport.

“Against Arbroath we lost a few goals despite being under no real pressure and we can’t afford to repeat that on Saturday.”

Sean Lynch will miss out and there was further bad news for Bryan Hodge after it was revealed he’ll miss at least the next three months due to injury.
