Hearts will face Championship side Inverness Caley Thistle at Tynecastle next month in a benefit match for former Jambo Angus Beith who was forced to quit the game aged 23 through injury.

Craig Levein’s side will welcome Caley, managed by Jambos icon John Robertson, to Gorgie on July 8th in a repeat of this year’s Scottish Cup semi-final.

Beith came through the ranks at Tynecastle and made a handful of first-team appearances before moving north to sign for Robbo in 2018.

The ex-midfielder also had stints on loan with Stirling Albion, Stenhousemuir and Stranraer before making a permanent move to Inverness.

However, after suffering from a recurring long-term hip problem, Beith was forced to hang up his boots in April and two of his former sides will meet in a benefit clash for the 23-year-old.

Despite undergoing a number of operations to cure the problem, similar to the one suffered by Andy Murray, there was no long-term solution so he made the decision to quit playing.

Since retiring from playing, Beith has been appointed to the Hearts Academy staff, working with the under-12s, as he looks to build a career elsewhere in the game.
