Chief scout departs Burnley
4:01pm Thursday 3rd May 2012 in npower Championship table
BURNLEY’S chief scout Tim Henderson has left Turf Moor by mutual consent, after two-and-a-half years with the club.
Henderson was brought in by former manager Brian Laws in January 2010, and was instrumental in the signings of Danny Fox from Celtic and a loan deal for then Chelsea midfielder Jack Cork.
However, the former Sheffield Wednesday and Middlesbrough scout is to leave the Clarets following a re-shuffle of manager Eddie Howe’s backroom team.
"I have enjoyed my time with the club immensely. It is what we call in the industry a 'proper club', full of tradition, good people and strong core values," said Henderson, who was also responsible for opposition analysis during his spell with Burnley.
"Although ending in disappointment, the highlight of my time at the club was our Premier League campaign.
"That will be a stand-out memory for me as every professional wants to pit their wits against the top clubs in the best league."
He added: "I wish the club well for the future. A respectable finish has been obtained after a season of transition and I am sure a busy summer lies ahead while the manager looks to shape and mould his team for another championship campaign - one I believe can be successful if everyone is patient and gets behind the team."
Burnley chief executive Lee Hoos said: "We thank Tim for his considerable efforts during his time at Turf Moor.
"He made a valued contribution to the coaching and playing staff during his time with us and we wish him well as he pursues his future career."
