Career[edit]

Tottenham Hotspur[edit]

Born in Newham, London,[1] Archibald-Henville joined Tottenham Hotspur full-time in 2005 after a successful spell towards the end of the 2004–05 season. He made the step up to the reserves in 2007 making 15 appearances in total, scoring two goals. His impressive performances earned him the captain's armband for the reserves. He has also been on the bench on two occasions for the first team including the North London derby at Arsenal in December 2007.

Norwich City (loan)[edit]

For the 2008–09 season, Norwich City took Archibald-Henville on what was initially a season long loan, but he returned to Tottenham without making a league appearance.[2]

Exeter City (loan)[edit]

On 20 January 2009, Archibald-Henville signed on loan for Exeter City,[3] and was placed immediately into the squad for the nights match at Dagenham & Redbridge in which he helped to win the game 2–1 for his debut.[4] During his time there, Archibald-Henville was hailed as "terrific" by Exeter manager Paul Tisdale.[5]

Before his debut, Exeter asked the Football League if they could just put "Troy" on the back of his shirt but were told the entire surname had to be there, without exception.[6]

At the end of the Grecians successful 2008–09 season which saw them win promotion to League One, Archibald-Henville returned to his parent club in a bid to win a new contract with Spurs. He signed a new deal at Tottenham until 2010.[7] In July 2009, he signed a six-month loan deal with Exeter City after manager Paul Tisdale stated his desire to bring Archibald-Henville back to Devon for another loan spell.[8]

Exeter City[edit]

On 1 February 2010, it was announced that Archibald-Henville had signed a permanent deal with Exeter City, moving from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee.[9]

Swindon Town[edit]

In 2010, Archibald-Henville signed a two-year deal with recently promoted League One side Swindon Town.[10]

Carlisle United (loan)[edit]

Due to injuries, Archibald-Henville found it difficult to gain match fitness to force his way into the Town side, so he joined fellow League One side Carlisle on a month long loan deal, the deal was a success but was cut short due to a knee-injury which required surgery. He returned to Swindon Town and made 15 more appearances for the club, as they tried to force their way into the League One play-off.

Carlisle United[edit]

Following his release from Swindon Town, Archibald-Henville penned a two-year deal with recently relegated side Carlisle United whom which he enjoyed a successful loan-spell the season prior.[11]
