Partick Thistle manager Ian McCall says former West Ham United left-back Stephen Hendrie is adding to an already ‘very talented squad’ at Firhill.

The Scottish Championship club have signed the defender on a deal until January, following his exit from Morecambe earlier this summer. Hendrie started his career at Hamilton and earned himself a big move to West Ham United, since forging a career for himself across the EFL and SPFL.

He is McCall’s latest signing after West Ham United academy graduate Tunji Akinola joined towards the end of the summer transfer window. Thistle play Inverness Caledonian Thistle in the Highlands this weekend after a 2-0 win over Stranraer in the SPFL Trust Trophy last Saturday.

Speaking of Hendrie’s official arrival at Firhill, McCall said: “I’m very pleased to welcome Stephen to the squad. I’ve spoken plenty about wanting to add to the defensive options we have here and getting someone like Stephen in is just what I was looking for.

“He played over 40 games last season at a very good level and we’ve had him in training for a little while now so we know we’re getting a quality player to add to what is already a very talented squad.”
