Henderson Signs
Uploaded Saturday, 14th Aug, 2021 at 18:00

BALLYMENA United are delighted to announce the signing of midfielder Jack Henderson on a 2 year contract.
The 21 year old recently returned from a football scholarship in the United States to become the latest signing for the Sky Blues.
Henderson joins having spent a trial period during pre-season, and manager David Jeffrey was very pleased to bring the highly rated former U18 international to the Showgrounds ahead of other suitors, "to say that I'm absolutely delighted is an understatement. Jack was at Glentoran before heading to the United States, so we know of his ability. We were alerted to his availability by both Stuart Donald, our head of youth development and Brian Adair, who has been helping us with recruitment in a consultancy role. I can say that literally within half an hour we were impressed with his touch, use of the ball, awareness and he is not afraid to put a tackle. It is so pleasing that it took less than 24 hours to agree terms and for Jack to decide to commit to Ballymena United. His potential will be there for all to see and he will be given the same opportunity as all our young players get, but I can say enough how much Bryan and I are delighted to bring in this exceptional young man."
Henderson will take shirt number 14 this season.
