Player Profile

Henry was a classy full-back from Scotland, who spent two successful seasons as a Fox and missed just one match during that two-season spell.

He made his name north of the border for Scottish giants Glasgow Rangers and moved on to Falkirk before deciding on a switch south of the border with Fosse. He made his debut in a home clash against Wolves in 1909 and maintained his starting role thereafter, becoming one of the first names down on the Fosse team-sheet.

His performances caught the attention of top-flight club Manchester City and the Citizens forked out the highest-ever fee received by City for one of their players - £1,000. It was a deal Leicester, and indeed Henry, couldn't turn down as he got his chance at top-flight English football.

The war hindered his outings for City but he did spend eight years there, the majority of his career. He never got a first-team cap for Scotland, but did get international honours in a military game between England at Scotland at Everton's Goodison Park ground.

Following his successful stint with City, Henry brought his professional football career to a close at St Bernard.
