Block arrived at Easter Road in the 2019 January transfer window from English non-league side Bognor Regis following a successful trial spell.

While he never made an appearance for the first team, he did make the bench for a Scottish Cup clash with Elgin City, the day after signing for Hibs.

At the time he said: “Struggling to find the words to do the last 24 hours justice. Between signing last night and making the bench today, I feel so lucky. Thanks to everyone for making me feel so welcome and I will do everything I can to repay the club for this opportunity.”

In a statement on the Hibs website, the club wished the player all the best for the future.

It read: “He applied himself with total commitment on and off the park, featuring in our specially arranged Development Squad games programme, and will always be welcome back in Edinburgh.”
