First Team

Kirk and Gallacher extend contracts

12th June 2020

Andy Kirk and Paul Gallacher have both signed contract extensions with Hearts.

The coaching duo has extended their current deals by a year, keeping them at Tynecastle Park until 2021.

First team coach Andy returned to Gorgie in 2016 as an U15s coach, following a playing career that included five years leading the frontline in a maroon shirt.

He soon took on the reins of the club’s U17s side before leading the reserve team, and stepped up to coach the first team following the arrival of Daniel Stendel in December 2019.

Former Scotland internationalist Paul was recruited as the club’s goalkeeping coach by then manager Robbie Neilson back in the summer of 2016. 

As well as his first team responsibilities, Paul pulls double duty by helping to coach the reserve team goalkeepers and is involved in the Hearts Academy system too.
