Ronnie Henry is the man who has seen more empires rise and fall at Boro' than most others to have ever worn the shirt. In the seven years of stellar service he gave the club, he eased into the list of record appearances. In the club's professional era, surely no-one will come close to ever replicating that feat.

The services of the former Tottenham Hotspur defender were secured on a free transfer in January 2005; the player proving to be an integral part of the Stevenage defence in years that followed. Awareness and co-ordination were two factors that firmly established himself at the Lamex Stadium.

Initially signed as a central player, Henry found himself converted to right back during his stay and it was a role that he tirelessly fulfilled during Boro's ascent up into the Football League - firstly from non-league football, and once again when promotion to League One followed.

During his career with Boro', Henry served under a multitude of managers - Graham Westley (twice); Mark Stimson; Peter Taylor; and Gary Smith. It was to be the latter who would be his last at Stevenage. Losing his first team place as 2011/2 ended, the time came for Henry to move on.

Henry's departure was a changing of the guard in 2012. He may have been one of a number to be released/to decide it was time to go, but none had established themselves right at the heart of the club as much as the first captain to lift a trophy at the new Wembley.

Of course, that wasn't to be the end of the love affair between Boro' and Ronnie. Perhaps taking his cue from two-time former boss, the return of Graham Westley for a third spell at the helm paved the way for the player's own return after helping Luton back into the League.

The departure of Westley in summer 2015 meant that Teddy Sheringham was to become the fifth manager under whom Henry had played at the Lamex. A former colleague from Spurs times, Henry is a man that embodies the progress made by Boro' since his arrival and means he will rightly go down as a legendary figure at the club when his playing career is at an end.

Stats do not include expunged Chester City fixtures in 2009/10.
