A midfielder who is capable of breaking up play and initiating attacks, Henry-Francis shot to prominence with an impressive performance for the first-team against Hibernian in pre-season in 2021.

The Hale End product later progressed to professional terms and featured frequently for the U23s.

Henry-Francis, who has been capped by the Republic of Ireland at youth level, often brings a lot of energy with his performances and is very hard working.

This season he is no longer eligible to play for the U18s and will hope to edge closer to further involvement at senior level.
