Hearn started his career at Millwall as trainee, making 18 Football League appearances for The Lions. In 2001, the youngster was named as one of the 'Sun Sports' hot prospects for the new millennium, along with England cricketer Monty Panesaar amongst others.|
The 5"11' Midfielder was loaned out to Northampton Town in December 2004, failing to appear for Millwall since May. Initially the loan was for one month, but was later extended until the end of the 2004/05 season after impressing at Sixfields.
"He has become a little bit forgotten about but I have watched him play a number of times over the last few seasons for Millwall, and he also played against our reserve team down at the New Den a couple of weeks ago." said Colin Calderwood, former Northampton boss.
However, Hearn was released at the end of the season by Millwall, and fell into non-league football with a spell at Hendon before making a move to Conference South outfit Fisher Athletic.
Again Charley was released from his club in May 2007, this time new Fisher Athletic boss and former Grays favourite, Wayne Burnett axed the entire Fisher first team to start fresh for the new season.
Edinburgh, Hearn's former manager at Fisher, snapped him up on a one-year contract a few weeks later, when his arrival at The New Rec was announced on 15th June 2007.
Hearn was sent on a month's loan to Blue Square South league leaders, Lewes at the start of February 2008. He then joined Ebbsfleet United on loan until the end of the season on 13th March 2008.
