In the 2011–12 season, it wasn’t until on 19 November 2011 when Henley made his professional – and Premier League – debut, replacing Míchel Salgado and playing the entire second half in a 3–3 draw against Wigan Athletic at the DW Stadium.[10] On 26 December 2011, Henley earned his first start and played the full 90 minutes against Liverpool at Anfield, which finished in a 1–1 draw.[11] Four days later, Henley signed a new two-and-a-half-year deal, his first professional contract at Blackburn Rovers.[12] He was involved in one of the most remarkable results of the 2011–12 season on 31 December 2011, playing the full 90 minutes at left back in a 3–2 victory over Manchester United at Old Trafford. Henley helped set up the corner that Blackburn got their winner off as they beat Manchester United for the first time since 2005 at Old Trafford.[13] Henley later made two appearances for the rest of the 2011–12 season, both were starts against Queens Park Rangers and Chelsea.[14] However, he made seven appearances for the side, as they were relegated from the Premier League after losing 1–0 to Wigan Athletic.[15] Despite this, he was awarded the club’s Young Player of the Year.[16]

At the start of the 2012–13 season, Henley's first team opportunities became more limited under manager Steve Kean, as Bradley Orr took his position in the right back; and was sent to the reserve side instead.[17] Kean left the club and was replaced by former player Henning Berg.
