  • Player profile

    Henderson followed Jock Wallace to City in October 1978, spending three years at the club and notching 16 goals in exactly 100 appearances in league, FA Cup and League Cup for the Foxes before moving on to Chesterfield.

    The Kirkcaldy man made a big impression as a teenager breaking through with Rangers, then managed by Wallace, and he was part of their treble-winning squad in 1975-76. But he failed to build on that, instead moving across the pond to try his hand with Philadelphia Fury.

    Henderson soon returned to Britain, however, and that was down to Wallace, who'd taken over at Filbert Street. It was a wise move, with Henderson adding experience to the City ranks and aiding their promotion charge in the 1979-80 season.

    Henderson moved on to Chesterfield after nearly three years as a Fox before he went on to play the latter years of his career in the lower leagues with clubs such as Spalding United, where he also had a spell as coach and manager, and Leicester United.
