Clyde have announced on their website that St Mirren youngster Jay Henderson’s loan spell at the League One club has come to an end, and he is returning to the Premiership club.

The 18-year-old played six games for the League One side in his spell at the club, which began in September. Interestingly enough, Clyde boss Danny Lennon has taken the blame for the player not featuring in as many games as he could have.

Manager impressed with player

Lennon has put that down to the system he wanted to play, and not down to the talent of Henderson. Indeed, he feels that the player has plenty of potential.

“Jay’s a terrific lad, with very good potential. It was a pleasure to work with and we thank him for his efforts” he said (official Clyde website).


“He didn’t get as much game time as he hoped and that was more down to me and the system we wanted to play, rather than him” Lennon went on.

“Cash in on the experiences”

“However, I think any young player can always cash in on the experiences you get during a loan period and I hope that he can do that. We wish him all the best” Lennon concluded.

It will be interesting to see if Crawford makes a breakthrough into the St Mirren team this season. He might well feature towards the end of the season. Perhaps if St Mirren are safe from relegation, and Jim Goodwin wants to give some of his younger players a chance to shine. Only time will tell.
