Liam Henderson Commits for another season

Liam Henderson Commits To Another Season!

Everyone at the club is delighted that 2020’s player of the year Liam Henderson has committed himself to City for another season. Hendo was in superb form last term, including an amazing spell which saw him named SPFL League 2 player of the month for December 2019.

With pace and skill and a real goal threat from set-pieces, Liam was an integral part of the squad and his signing is a major show of intent for the next season – whenever that may start!

 

TV star Hendo spoke to Edinburgh City TV and said “I’m happy to resign glad to get it sorted. I’m looking forward to get back into the swing of things. Hoping to have another successful season pushing more for that title.”

Manager James McDonaugh commented “Liam overcame a tough start to last season but hit a real purple patch which rightly earned him SPFL recognition. Being voted Player of the Year was also confirmation that he’s a young player with great potential so it’s positive to have him secured for the new season. ”

Keep an eye on Edinburgh City TV later tonight for more Hendo content…
