Wayne Henderson 29570c17

‪[drocap]I[/dropcap]t is with great sadness that we heard of the passing yesterday of Paddy Henderson, father of an Irish goalkeeping dynasty.

Paddy, who lived a stone’s throw from Dalymount Park in Faussagh Rd, was a goalkeeper for Shamrock Rovers and Drogheda United and later a coach with the Bohemian schoolboys.

Paddy’s son Dave was a fans’ favourite as goalkeeper for Bohs from 1992 until he hung up his gloves in 1998 and is currently our Head of Recruitment having also served as the club’s chief scout and later as goalkeeping coach during Pat Fenlon’s time in charge between 2008 and 2011.

Another goalkeeping son Stephen, now manager of Cobh Ramblers, was also on Bohs’ books in the late 1990s.

Their youngest brother Wayne was a goalkeeper for Ireland having played for Bohs at Under-10, Under-11 and Under-12 level, while Stephen’s son Stephen Jnr is currently a goalkeeper for Nottingham Forest.

Condolences to all of the Henderson family.‬
