Stephen Henderson (born 2 May 1988) is an Irish professional footballer who plays for Charlton Athletic as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Dublin, County Dublin, Henderson began his youth career with Belvedere before joining Aston Villa in 2005 at the age of 17.[2] He progressed through the Villa youth system before signing his first professional contract on 5 May 2006.[1]

Bristol City[edit]

Henderson agreed to join newly-promoted Championship club Bristol City on 30 May 2007 on a one-year contract starting on 1 July, when his contract with Aston Villa expired.[3] He made his debut against Queens Park Rangers on 11 August 2007, coming on as a substitute in the second half.[4] He joined Conference Premier team York City on a one-month loan on 31 August 2007.[5] He made seven appearances during his spell with the club.[6] He joined Weymouth of the Conference Premier on a one-month loan on 29 February 2008 and spent the rest of the 2007–08 season with the club, making 16 appearances.[7][8] He was offered a new deal with City in May 2008.[9] Henderson came on as a substitute in the ninth minute against Ipswich Town on 13 April 2009 and manager Gary Johnson said he "did really well".[10]

He almost joined League One team Wycombe Wanderers on loan until the end of the 2009–10 season on 25 January 2010,[11] before eventually signing for League Two side Aldershot Town on an initial one-month loan on 1 February 2010.[12] On 17 September 2010, Henderson joined Yeovil Town on a 30-day emergency loan,[13] making his debut on 18 September in a 4–2 away defeat to Huddersfield Town.[14] On 3 January 2011, Henderson re-joined Yeovil on loan for the remainder of the season and subsequently kept a clean sheet on his return against Brentford.[15][14]

Portsmouth[edit]

On 8 July 2011, Henderson joined Portsmouth on a three-year contract, citing his reasons for leaving Bristol City as frustration at his lack of first team opportunities.[16][17] Henderson was back-up goalkeeper for Jamie Ashdown until Ashdown's loss of form. He made his Portsmouth debut at Leeds United in a 1–0 defeat on 1 October 2011 and then kept his first clean sheet for Portsmouth in a 2–0 victory over Barnsley at Fratton Park on 15 October.[18] Since making his debut, Henderson established himself as Portsmouth's first choice goalkeeper ahead of Ashdown.

West Ham United[edit]

On 16 March 2012, Henderson joined Championship rivals West Ham United on an emergency loan from Portsmouth until the end of the season.[19] He was unused substitute for the 2012 Football League Championship play-off Final, a result that ensured West Ham made an immediate return to the Premier League.[20]

On 21 May 2012, Henderson joined West Ham permanently on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee.[21] He made his first team debut for West Ham on 28 August 2012 against Crewe Alexandra in the League Cup.[22] West Ham won the match 2–0.[22] He joined Championship club Ipswich Town on a three-month loan on 16 October 2012 and made his debut in a 2–1 defeat at Hull City on 20 October.[22][23] He made 16 appearances for Ipswich, and re-signed for the club on loan for the rest of the season on 31 January 2013.[24] He was recalled to West Ham on 21 March 2013.

In October 2013 Henderson signed for Bournemouth on a three-month loan as cover for the suspended first choice goalkeeper Ryan Allsop and the injured second choice goalkeeper, Darryl Flahavan.[25] In the second game of his loan spell, an away game against Nottingham Forest, Henderson dislocated his shoulder after colliding with Forest's Simon Cox. He returned to West Ham for treatment for the injury which was expected to keep him out of football for six months.[26] He was released by West Ham in July 2014.[27]

Charlton Athletic[edit]

Henderson signed for Championship club Charlton Athletic on a three-year contract on 21 July 2014.[28]

International career[edit]

Henderson was capped by the Republic of Ireland at under-16, under-17 and under-19 level.[2] He made his under-21s debut as a substitute in a 3–2 defeat away to Sweden in October 2007.[29] He finished his under-21 career with eight caps.[2]

Henderson was called up to the senior national team for a February 2012 friendly match against the Czech Republic, for which he was an unused substitute.[30]

Personal life[edit]

Henderson comes from a noted Irish goalkeeping family, with his grandfather Paddy and his father, also Stephen, being former goalkeepers.[2] His two uncles, Dave and Wayne, are also goalkeepers.[2]
