The teenage pair fired first-half goals in the Jambos' 3-0 win over St Mirren at Tynecastle, with Jamie Hamill converting a penalty after the break to seal a convincing victory.

The club have reported losses of £1.65million for last season, with their overall debt standing at £24.7m, but Locke was pleased with how his side are progressing on the pitch.

Locke said: "It was a great afternoon and a really pleasing performance.

"We knew there was going to be a big crowd. We had to be up for it and give the fans something to shout about.

"There's a lot of positive things at the club. We had 11 under-21s stripped today.

"The off-field stuff is not something that I really concern myself with. I concentrate on the football side of things. I am delighted for the backroom staff and all the people behind the scenes.

"We are thankful for the support we are getting from the fans and delighted to give them a good result today."
