Town boss hails Henderson heroics

23 April 2009 12:27
Henderson has kept four clean sheets in his 12 appearances since moving from Preston, helping the Mariners move from a perilous position to four points clear of the drop zone with two games remaining.

And Newell, who decided to bring in the 25-year-old at the expense of reigning player of the year Phil Barnes, has expressed his delight with the Irishman's contribution.

"We certainly knew we were getting a quality keeper in," he told the Grimsby Telegraph.

"It might not have been apparent to everybody immediately but we felt he would be a good addition.

"You don't play for your country six times unless you have ability and he's showing that for us."
