It’s easy to pinpoint some of the stars from up and down the SPFL this season. Stephen Dobbie, Lawrence Shankland and Craig Halkett are just three examples of players who have had standout seasons in Scotland.
One that perhaps isn’t talked about as much is Edinburgh City striker Blair Henderson. The 6′ 4″ forward has been a real handful for League Two defences this season, firing his Edinburgh City side up the table, providing a real challenge to rivals Peterhead for the League Two crown.
The striker has been brilliant this season, and has demonstrated his ability to score a wide range of goals on multiple occasions this term.
The striker gets fans of their feet, and you begin to feel, anything will happen when he has the ball at his disposal.
Henderson inspiring the City revolution
After a 4-0 victory over Queens Park, in which Henderson scored two, City are now three points clear at the top of League Two. It’s an amazing turnaround for a club who were ninth in the division last year, following their promotion from the Lowland League two seasons ago.
Henderson has had a big part to play in this. He’s scored 28 times in all competitions and averages a goal every game in the league. He is also Scotland’s top scorer across the four professional leagues.
That’s a remarkable record but it’s not of any surprise. Henderson has been top goalscorer at every club he’s been at for the past three seasons. He’s set to make that a fourth this term.
It’s in the last year though where Henderson has really came alive. After netting 16 times for Annan last term, he move to Edinburgh, and has carried on his impressive form.
Henderson has everything to make it to the top of the Scottish game. Physique, technique and an eye for goal, Henderson has the lot. Whenever City play, you know there’s a good chance Henderson has scored.
The striker will no doubt be gathering interest from teams throughout Scotland. City fans will hope Henderson remains in the capital for the rest of the season, for if he does, they have a great chance of winning the title in May.
