Hart hammers way to 31 goals in season to finish first in the league

Premier League top scorer Graeme Hart was over the moon to finish the campaign with 31 goals after a brace against Dundee North End.

Hart grabbed a couple alongside skipper Darren Scott, who announced his retirement at full-time, whil John Farquharson scored the other in a 5-2 thrashing of Forfar’s rivals.

It was good to come over a psychological barrier.

And Graeme admitted he was chuffed that the side got over a mental barrier of defeating the side who beat them to last year’s North Division championship title.

The striker said: “I’m absolutely delighted. I wasn’t nervous or anything. I just wanted the victory, I didn’t care if I scored.

“Scoring in the first minute and getting us into the flying start was the perfect scenario for the team and for me. It was a great start.

“We beat North End 6-1 two years ago here and since then we’ve struggled against them. A lot of our players know their players with most of us being local boys.

“It was good to come over a psychological barrier because we lost the last three to them including a cup semi-final, so it was great that we came out of the traps like we did.

“We’re not too far off the better teams in the league, we can push up next year and that’s obviously the goal.

“I’m absolutely happy to stay. I’ve had a few clubs in for me but Daryl has done a lot for me. I love it here and I love the boys so there’s no doubt for me that I’ll be staying.”
