Striker Henderson Loaned From Watford
Colchester United have bolstered their attracting options, signing Liam Henderson from Watford until January.
The young striker challenges Reading striker Dave Mooney, former Barnsley man Kayode Odejayi and one-time Cheltenham forward Steven Gillespie for first-team football with the U`s.
Ashley Vincent and Ian Henderson, already with the U`s squad, are primordially wingers but could also be deployed as second strikers under a potentially flexible formation favoured by boss John Ward.
Liam Henderson`s arrival, he has also previously spent time at Hartlepool United, sees the manager fulfil on his intent to replace former forwards Clive Platt (Coventry), Kevin Lisbie (Millwall / Ipswich), Scott Vernon (Aberdeen) and Frenchman Joel Thomas.
20-year-old Henderson has played so far 21 times for Watford and will know Colchester midfielder John-Joe O`Toole from his time with the Hornets.
