A product of the Arsenal Academy, Henderson came to prominence during the Gunners' 2008–09 FA Youth Cup, 2008–09 Premier Academy League and 2009–10 Premier Academy League wins.[3][4][5]

Henderson was named on the bench for the away trips to Wigan and Blackburn near the end of the 2009–10 season but did not make an appearance.[6][7] On 2 March 2011, it was announced that he would make his debut against Leyton Orient in an FA Cup replay.[8] He played the full 90 minutes as Arsenal won 5–0.[9] Arsène Wenger later stated after the match that he expects Henderson to be a future player for the first team. During pre-season, he damaged his knee ligaments. Arsène Wenger later said that he would be out for a minimum of six months.[10] In March 2012 he played his first game in eight months in a behind closed doors match against Reading.[11]

In September 2012, Henderson went on a 3 month loan to Coventry City,[12] making his debut in a 2–1 home defeat to Carlisle United.[13] However, Henderson loan spell at Coventry City was marred by spell on the substitution bench and injuries. After making two appearance, Henderson returned to his parent club on 23 December 2012.[14]

Henderson was released by Arsenal after the end of the 2012–13 season, after failing to agree a new deal with the club.[15]

Hull City[edit]

After impressing manager Steve Bruce during two reserve matches, Henderson was signed by Hull City on 24 September 2013 on a free transfer and was given the number 30 shirt.[16] Henderson made his debut against Huddersfield Town in the third round of the Football League Cup and came on in the 74th minute, replacing fellow Irish midfielder Stephen Quinn in a 1–0 win for the Tigers.[17]

On 27 March 2014, Henderson went out on loan to Stevenage for the rest of the season.[18] After featuring on the bench four times, Henderson made his debut for the club on 12 April 2014, where he made his first start, as Stevenage lose 3-2 to Colchester United.[19] Henderson would added two more appearance for Stevenage. Unfortunately, Stevenage were relegated to League Two and he returned to Hull City.

At the end of the 2013-14 season, Henderson was released by the club upon the expiry of the contract.[20]

Crawley Town[edit]

After being released by Hull City, Henderson joined Crawley Town for free on a one-year contract.[21]
