HARRY Wheeler has bolstered his Billericay Town backline by completing the signing of experienced defender Ronnie Henry.

Henry will officially make the move to the AGP Arena on July 1, after his contract with League Two side Stevenage expires.

And Billericay boss Wheeler is pleased to have attracted Henry to the National League South club.

Wheeler said: “Ronnie is a Stevenage legend.

“He has been at other big clubs and at each of them he has shown that he is a leader and great club man.

“He will be a great addition with his vast league experience.

“He knows how to control games from the back and it’s taken a while to complete the deal.

“But I’m delighted to say he is now a Billericay Town player.”

Henry came through the ranks at Tottenham Hotspur and enjoyed a brief loan spell with Southend United.

The defender then joined Stevenage on a free transfer in January 2005 and secured promotion to the Football League with a National League play-off final win over Carlisle United in 2005.

Henry also got his hands on the FA Trophy in 2009 and was a key member of the Stevenage side that won the League Two title 12 months later.

After a seven-year spell with the club, Henry joined Luton Town in 2012.

But Henry returned to Stevenage two years later and went onto become the club’s all-time record appearance holder.

Henry was rewarded with a testimonial at the League Two club last month.
