IRON SIGN DARIUS HENDERSON

24 July 2015

United have signed free agent Darius Henderson on a one-year deal.

Once a £2 million recruit for Sheffield United in July 2008, the 33-year-old striker arrives at Glanford Park with a wealth of experience in the Premier League, Championship and League One.

After leaving Doncaster’s youth set-up, Darius signed for Reading in 2000 before eventually arriving at Watford in 2005 following spells with Brighton, Gillingham and Swindon. While with the Hornets, the Sutton-born attacker appeared in English football’s top flight, making over 100 appearances for the Vicarage Road outfit in his three year stay; scoring over 30 goals.

He then enjoyed spells at Sheffield United and Millwall, scoring a half century of goals combined in his time with both clubs before joining Nottingham Forest in 2013.

Last season, he was with Leyton Orient, scoring eight goals in 23 starts including the consolation penalty for the O’s when Scunthorpe beat them 4-1 at the Matchroom Stadium back in January.

Darius sends the Iron’s recruitment drive into double figures, with Stephen Dawson, Scott Wiseman, Jack King, Charlie Goode, Isaac Assenso, Scott Laird, Tom Hopper, Luke Williams and Jamie Ness already joining so far this summer.
