Hendo: Swindon was the making of me
Glory Hornet fans favourite Darius Henderson has revealed that a spell on loan at Swindon Town has turned him into the player he is today!
The Watford striker - who has now netted 30 times in a yellow shirt - reckons a 1 month loan spell at the County Ground in September 2004 was just the thing he needed to get back on the goal hunt after a spell out injured!
In response to fans questions on the official club site Henderson stated "[The loan spell with Swindon] was the turning point of my career if I look back on it."
He then showed Watford`s 5th Best Striker Tamas Priskin (who turned down loan spells with Crewe and Southend) a thing or two about accepting life in the lower division by insisting "I had to drop down a league to go out on loan but it gave me the match fitness and the confidence to show that I could score goals again".
Hendo netted 5 times in 6 games for the Robins of Division 1 after finding himself in the wilderness at Gillingham and is now considered a bit of a legend within Swindon circles.
