Career[edit]

Born in Gravesend, Kent, Hessenthaler began his career with Chelsea as an Under-8 in their youth system and was 15 when Chelsea released him after seven years with the club.[5]

He signed his first professional contract with Gillingham in February 2013.[3] After loan spells with non-League clubs Lewes, Tamworth and Margate, he made his debut in The Football League in November 2013.[6] He scored his first goal for Gilingham in a 4–2 win at home to Coventry City on 11 March 2014, with a 40-yard strike in the 90th minute.[7]

On 7 February 2014, Hessenthaler signed a new long-term deal at Gillingham to keep him contracted until the end of the 2018–19 season.[8]

He was released by Gillingham at the end of the 2017–18 season[9] and signed a two-year contract with Grimsby Town on 25 June 2018.[10] He scored his first goal for Grimsby in a 2-1 EFL Trophy win over Notts County on 4 September 2018.[11]

Personal life[edit]

Hessenthaler is the son of former Gillingham player and manager Andy Hessenthaler, the nephew of Darren Hare, who has worked as the club's youth team manager, and the cousin of former Gills teammate Josh Hare.[12]
