Career[edit]

Club[edit]

In 2001 Henry was signed by the Hershey Wildcats of the USL First Division where he and his teammates reached the USL First Division Championship game. In 2002 Henry was transferred to the Montreal Impact where he played seven games. In the following season, 2003, Henry signed for the Charleston Battery where he was a solid defender, helping the team capture the USL First Division Championship.

In May 2005, Henry signed with the Toronto Lynx where he was a key contributor in the defence for a struggling team plagued with injuries throughout the season.

To improve his chances of selection for the 2006 FIFA World Cup, Henry signed that year for Kiruna FF of the Swedish Division 1, but was unsuccessful in his bid, and never played a game for the team. After another brief stint back home with the Superstar Rangers, the Puerto Rico Islanders announced the signing of Henry and Kevon Villaroel for the 2008 season.[1] He later retired at the end of the 2009 season, but came back to the Islanders in the second half of the 2010 season, which he later retired again.

International[edit]

In 2005 Henry earned two international caps or selection for the Trinidad and Tobago, having been named in squads against Barbados and Guatemala.
