Jabba's Comments

Thomas Wedlock Henderson was picked up as a Scottish schoolboy by Leeds (ooo-er!) but failed to settle in Yorkshire and soon returned home to Scotland. He played for Hearts and St Mirren - and made it to the final of the Scottish Cup in 1962. With a bit more experience under his belt, Don Revie decided to make a move for him and things might have worked out quite a bit differently for him if a certain Johnny Giles hadn't been signed to take on the same position. He went through a quick succession of lower division clubs, and ended up at Altrincham towards the end of the 1960s.

Ian Gledhill says: I remember my 'Boys Book of Soccer 1957' - or it could have been 1956 - contained details of the England v Scotland Schoolboys international match at Wembley. The two inside forwards for Scotland were Tommy Henderson and another young man called Billy Bremner. The report said that Billy Bremner would have been the outstanding player on the pitch that afternoon if only Tommy Henderson had not outshone him.

Ian Gledhill says: This is a correction to my earlier note concerning the exact year of the football annual which contained the report of the Schoolboys international. Players had to be under fifteen years of age at the beginning of the season - in those days that was the fourth formers. As far as I can remember, the match took place each May. All this means that the match must have been in May 1958 if Tommy was born in September 1943. I must have got the book for Christmas in 1958. I was eight at the time. Sorry to be pedantic. I just wanted it to be right.

allan watson says: played with him at larkhall academy. have you any information on his whereabouts. trained with him also with the scottish schoolboys.for the rcord tommy at 15 years old was some player.
