First Team

Ben leaves Hearts

14th October 2020

 Ben Garuccio has left Hearts by mutual consent.

The Australian departs Tynecastle after both parties agreed to terminate his contract.

25-year-old Ben joined Hearts back in May 2018 after leaving Adelaide United in his homeland.

The left-back would go on to make 29 appearances in a maroon jersey and scored one goal, a stunning free-kick against Inverness Caledonian Thistle in July 2018.

Speaking to the Official Hearts Website, manager Robbbie Neilson said: “Ben’s a great guy and I’ve enjoyed working with him since I came in.

“He wants to play regular first-team football but I can’t offer that guarantee, so we agreed he could move on.

“I’m sure the fans will thank Ben for giving his all every time he pulled on a Hearts shirt and we wish him all the best for the future.”
