CareerEdit

Henry was born in Cambuslang, and turned professional in 1991. He first qualified for the World Snooker Championship in 1994, narrowly losing 10-9 in the first round to John Parrott. In 1996 Henry again reached the first round of the tournament, losing to Darren Morgan, and made the quarter-finals of a ranking event, the Welsh Open, for the first time.[2]

He twice reached the second round of the World Championships, in 2000 and 2003, beating Mark King in the first round on both occasions; the second victory came in the first World Championship match to be refereed by a woman, Michaela Tabb.[3]

He has reached the semi-finals of three ranking events, most prestigiously the 2002 UK Championship, where he defeated reigning champion Ronnie O'Sullivan 9–6 in the quarter finals.[4] His first semi-final appearance came a year earlier in the China Open, a performance which saw his world ranking rise to its highest position of #18.[2]

Henry dropped out of the professional tour after a 5-1 defeat by Ian McCulloch in the first round of the 2008 Welsh Open.[1]
