BiogHenry McIlvenny was a centre-forward who played for Celtic in the club’s early years. Rare for anyone to return to a club but Henry has the amazing record of playing for the club in three brief spells.
He initially signed for the Bhoys from Parkhead Juniors in September 1895 and made his competitive debut in a 3-2 league victory at Dumbarton on September 28th. He moved onto Burnley but returned to Parkhead in November 1896, only to be shown the door after the club’s shock Scottish Cup defeat to Arthurlie the following January.
Having then played for Belfast Celtic, Hamilton and Partick his final spell with the Bhoys began in October 1904 but by June the next year he was back at Hamilton.
Henry played a total of 11 competitive games for Celtic and scored twice.
