At the funeral of Tom Gracie at Craigston Cemetery yesterday the Hearts’ Directors were represented by Mr. John McCartney, secretary, and the players by Robert Mercer.
The late Tom Gracie was the leading Scottish scorer last season, 29 goals being recorded by him. To these has to be added the goal he got for the Scottish League against the Irish League at Belfast last November. The latter game was the only Scottish representative match in which Gracie appeared.
