Player profile

Forward Henderson played in 20 of the 28 games and scored ten times as the club won the Second Division title without losing a single match in the 1893/94 season. Liverpool tried unsuccessfully to hold on to their new status in the top division the following season and he was one of the casualties and never played for the club again. Henderson returned to Scotland in November 1894 and later played for Partick Thistle.
