Melbourne Heart FC's 37-year-old shot stopper Clint Bolton has been handed a starting berth and the captaincy as the Red and White challenge the Central Coast Mariners in Gosford this afternoon.

Bolton will don the gloves and the captain's armband as Head Coach John Aloisi makes a number of changes ahead of the match, with Andrew Redmayne taking up his spot on the bench after 13 consecutive starts for Heart.

Teenager Ben Garuccio has also been handed a starting berth - the first time since he was injured against Sydney FC in Round 9 in December last year - although the 17-year-old made a brief appearance off the bench in Heart's 2-0 win over Adelaide United in January.
