158 Gary Henshaw
Position : Midfield
Played : 1989-90 (on loan from Bolton Wanderers)
Appearances : 9
Goals : 1
After Lee Duxbury returned to Bradford we took Gary on loan from Bolton to bolster the midfield. He began his career at Grimsby slowly establishing himself in the first team over four seasons before signing for Bolton in 1987. He was part of the team that went up from the Fourth Division but was playing less regularly in the Third (although he was in the side that won the Sherpa Van Trophy in 1989).
Gary didn't do too bad with us ; he had some nice ball skills but looked a bit lightweight. He returned to Bolton before the end of the season and at a fan's forum that summer Terry Dolan gave a curt negative answer when asked if he was going to sign him. Gary lingered at Bolton without getting much of a look in for another season and was then released. After trials with Swansea and Chorley he signed for Runcorn. After a year there, he settled at Hyde United for 6 seasons before playing for both Atherton clubs , still playing for Atherton Collieries in 2001. He still lives in the Bolton area.
