Troy Hearfield (born 31 October 1987 in Tamworth, NSW) is an Australian football (soccer) player.[1]

Club career[edit]

Hearfield signed for Newcastle Jets in 2006.[2] On 2 February 2007, Hearfield made his professional debut in a game against Sydney FC.[3]

He made the transfer to Wellington Phoenix on 28 March 2008 after a rift between his former club Newcastle Jets about his release, and scored his first Phoenix goal against his former club on 23 November 2008.[4] Over the last two season Troy has been a regular starter, playing out of position in Right Back for Wellington Phoenix. Troy worked hard and became a solid addition in the defence, he also was good in attack when on the overlap. Troy parted ways with Phoenix at the end of the 2010-2011 season and signed with the Central Coast Mariners for the 2011–2012 A-League season.[5] Over the off-season Troy will be on a loan deal for four months with Indonesian outfit Pelita Jaya.[6] Troy scored his first goal in a 2-2 draw against Semen Padang FC. Hearfield made his debut and scored for the Mariners in a pre-season friendly match against Scottish giants Celtic. However, Hearfields current squad status with the Mariners is unknown. It has since been reported on 5 April 2013 that Hearfield had tested positive to a recreational drug during a failed drug test and had been sacked by the Mariners.[7] The Mariners released a statement on the same day confirming this however denied that he was sacked and that a mutual agreement was met between the club and Hearfield for him to be released from his contract.[8]

International career[edit]

He has represented Australia at both U-20 and U-23 level, however he was unlucky to miss out on selection for the Australian Olympic Football team. He has shown a good goal scoring record at both levels.
