Aldershot's Stephen Henderson eager to impress on loan

New Aldershot goalkeeper Stephen Henderson says he is excited about first team football after spending time on the bench at Bristol City.

The 21-year-old has dropped two leagues to take up a one-month loan deal at the Recreation Ground, having failed to play for City this season.

Henderson told BBC Surrey: "I'm at that point of my career where I need to play, so it's a good chance for me.

"It has been a bit frustrating, and now it's just about doing the best I can."

The move reunites Henderson with central defender Chris Blackburn.

Henderson explained: "I played with Chris at Weymouth for six months so I know him quite well, and we've played a lot of games together so straight a way that's a bonus for me."

Henderson has already played at the Recreation Ground, including for Weymouth at the end of the 2007/2008 season when the Shots finished as champions, and the Terras needed a point to stay up.

"It was a great night and a great atmosphere, and a bit weird. Their emotions were very different to us. It was a brilliant day for both sets of fans," Henderson said.
