One to Watch - James Henry
Millwall winger James Henry has been identified by Vital QPR as the One to Watch as QPR travel to The Den on Tuesday night for another tough away day.
Name: James Henry
Date of Birth: 10/06/1989
Former Clubs: Reading, Nottingham Forest, Bournemouth
Young Millwall midfielder James Henry will be out to continue an impressive first full season in a promising career as The Lions look to stop a rampant Rangers side. Possessing superb dead ball skills, the 21 year old will certainly enjoy testing his credentials against a top of the table team.
Henry initially rose through the ranks at Championship side Reading`s Youth Academy, eventually signing a one year professional contract with The Royals in 2006. Limited first team opportunities for the Reading-born player led to him being loaned out to Nottingham Forest in 2007, however having only just played one match he returned to the Madjeski after just 3 weeks.
He made his Reading debut in 2007 coming on as a substitute in a 4-2 loss to Liverpool in a League Cup tie. Later that year he moved on loan to Bournemouth where he scored twice on his debut and went on to score 4 league goals in 11 appearances. In January that season he was sent out on loan to Norwich City, however again he only managed to make a minimal 3 appearances.
In March 2009 he made his fourth loan spell of his short career, joining Millwall on a one month emergency loan. He later joined The Lions the following season where he made 27 appearances in total, scoring 8 goals, including a stunning hat-trick against Tranmere Rovers. He was a prominent figure in Millwall`s promotion from League 1 as he netted impressive goals against Colchester and Brentford.
Stuck behind the likes of Jimmy Kebe and Jobi McAnuff at the Madjeski, he readily accepted a three-year deal with The Lions and signed for an undisclosed fee in 2010. With only 3 league goals to his name this year, Henry will be looking to add to that tally and help his teammates secure 3 points against The Rs.
