Keeper Alex joins the Diamonds
With international clearance coming through in time for him to join yesterday’s match squad, we are pleased to announce the signing of former Coleraine goalkeeper Alex Henderson.
Alex, who turned 18 last week, has been with Airdrie since the beginning of pre-season, featuring as a trialist in the NL Cup final win at Broadwood in July.
A confident and assured young keeper, Alex has also featured for the Northern Ireland international side at various youth levels.
He told airdriefc.com: “It’s great to finally be here!
“Competition’s always a good thing, Josh will push me and I’ll push Josh. Only one player can play, so we’ll have to push each other and one person will get the place.”
Manager Rhys McCabe added: “Alex is a talented young goalkeeper with a big future, we’re delighted to bring him into the squad.
“He’s more than capable of competing for the number 1 jersey, so it’s pleasing to have good options in an important position.”
Welcome to the Diamonds, Alex!
