Hendrie gets Hammers all-clear


HendriewWest Ham signing Stephen Hendrie has finally been given international clearance by the Scottish FA to play for the club.

The Assoiation tweeted the news earlier this morning and wished the young left back all the best with his new club.

The signing from Hamilton, who spent the rest of last season with the Scottish Premier League side, has been training with his new team-mates in Ireland.

Having missed out on the Europa League squad due to ineligibility, Hendrie will stay with the first team group and could feature in upcoming pre-season friendlies.

Fellow left back Lewis Page will continue to be in the Europa League squad and Aaron Cresswell is with Hendrie in the main squad.

    What took so long ?
    Next they will want work permits for the Scots,
    Not fair on the lad if he missed playing at home in Europe,they knew he was coming here 6 months ago

    His loan back contract to Hamilton probably didnt officially end until a few days ago bubs,then all the clearance paper work would have been done.Im only guessing this is the case though,im not a stats man,lol 😀

    Now that Hendrie has been confirmed can someone please write up the whole squad not only real but imaginary with all rumoured players included then add some more players from a wish list with all their stats and all possible formations. Chuck in a cake recipe,sure fire plans to fix the NHS and notes on how to avoid PR disasters and that would be perfect thank you.

    It’s was probably produced last week on Wetpants QuickD
    Thanks Chicken did not know the situation we are quite rich in the left back position why have we missed out in the right back position ?
    Hope the lad works out as good as Cressy
