Henderson Joins The Mariners

31 August 2016

GRIMSBY Town Football Club are delighted to announce the loan signing of highly rated Manchester United and England under 20's goalkeeper, Dean Henderson on loan until January 2017 subject to EFL approval.  

The 19 year old joined the Old Trafford club as a 14 year old from Carlisle United, where he spent 6 years as a junior. His performances during the 2014/15 season also saw the exciting keeper shortlisted for United's Jimmy Murphy Young Player of the Year. 

Dean has been a strong presence in the Manchester United Under 21's and was their number 1 keeper in Nicky Butt's UEFA Youth League side last season. In February 2016, Henderson was recalled from a loan spell at Stockport County to be part of Manchester United's first team squad in their FA Cup tie vs. Shrewsbury Town. 

In August 2016, Dean's recent eye-catching performances lead to a call up to Aidy Boothroyd's England under 20 squad to face Brazil in Kidderminster in September. 

The youngster becomes the second signing of Deadline Day.
