Height : . m (5' 11")
Weight : kg (11st 10lbs)
A player who followed his grandfather and father through the Tottenham ranks, but like his Dad failed to make it through to the first team for a competitive match.
Ronnie was a tough, uncompromising central defender with a very good left foot, but he may have lacked a bit of pace to make it at the very highest level and with Ledley King and Michael Dawson in front of him for a first team place, he was allowed to leave the club in January 2005 after two years at Tottenham. He had a spell on loan at Southend United, playing a mere three games, as a result of a disagreement with the management there. Henry joined Hertfordshire side Stevenage Borough and although he only secured his place in the side late in the 2005-06 season, he showed that his will to win was effectual in helping Boro reach the play-offs and the following season was instrumental in helping the club to a win in the FA Trophy in the first major final at the new Wembley, lifting the trophy as captain.
While displaced as captain, Henry was once more a part of the team that reached the play offs in 2008-09, but lost in the semi-finals. At the end of that week, Ronnie won another FA Trophy winners medal when Stevenage beat York City 2-0.
Played his part in Stevenage's rise to the Football League in 2010 and helped them establish themselves in League Two.

Being told he no longer had a future at Tottenham ... 10.05.08 (Sunday Times "Magazine")
"It didn't sink in for two weeks. I was quite down about to be honest with you ... absolutely gutted."
Captaining the England C team ... 19.02.08 (The FA Website)
"It was a great honour for me to be the captain of England and to lead them out against Finland, I never expected that, but I was very pleased to be asked to do it and I was just glad we got the win.
Iím not taking anything for granted though and if I get the opportunity again to be captain against Wales, Iíll be grateful. We donít normally find out until we meet up though so Iíll have to wait and see."
