Gianluca Havern (born 24 September 1988) is an English semi-professional footballer who plays as a defender for Bradford Park Avenue.[2]

In his playing career, Havern had played for Stockport County, Radcliffe Borough, Ashton United, Mansfield Town and Hyde.

Club career[edit]

Born in Manchester, Greater Manchester,[1] Havern came through the club youth system at Stockport County where he was captain of the Under-18 side.[3] He had spells on loan at Northern Premier League Premier Division clubs Radcliffe Borough and at Ashton United[4] in 2007. He made his Stockport County debut against Brentford in May 2008 and scored the winning goal.[5] With Stockport citing financial trouble, Havern was one of several staff released in January 2009.[6] He left County having made only one appearance for the first team and was immediately taken on as trialist at Conference National outfit Mansfield Town, where he was soon offered a six-month contract.[7] After this spell, Havern returned to Stockport County on non-contract terms before signing another contract deal. On 31 August 2010 it was announced by Stockport that an agreement had been made regarding early settlements of player's contracts and as a result he had left the club.[8]

On 6 September 2010 it was announced he had been signed by Mossley,[9] but after just a month and only six appearances he moved to Tameside rivals Ashton United. In June 2011, he moved to Conference North side Hyde along with team-mate Ryan Crowther.[10]

In July 2012 he joined Altrincham.[11]

In July 2016 he moved to AFC Telford United.[12]

Personal life[edit]

In October 2011, it was revealed that Havern had been in a relationship with former N-Dubz singer and former X-Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos which began in June 2010. The pair met whilst on holiday in Ibiza but their relationship finished when Contostavlos had to fly out to America to record an album, Havern stated that there was 'no big bust up' when the pair split.[13]

As well as playing football he is also a part-time model. He is partly of Italian descent.[13]
