Henry heads home for personal reasons but stays on with Blues

Jim Henry has returned to his home in Scotland for personal reasons but will remain working for the Club over the rest of the season.

The first-team head of performance and sports/science at the Club will take on a new consultancy role on fitness and recovery.

A former Scotland judo international, Jim has worked for many years in football and was at Celtic, Aston Villa and Sunderland as part of Martin O’Neill’s backroom staff as well as being on the coaching staff at Rangers and Hibs.

He’s been a member of Paul Lambert’s team since 2018, the duo also having been together at Stoke.

“I spoke to Jim recently and we agreed that for personal reasons it would be beneficial for him to return home to Scotland,” Town’s general manager of football operations, Lee O’Neill, told the Club website.    

“Jim is vastly experienced and we will continue to use that knowledge over the rest of the season but it will now be in more of a consultancy role.”
