SCOTTISH ace John is a popular figure on the circuit, having enjoyed over a decade at the top.

A two-time Lakeside Championship qualifier and former British Open winner, Henderson joined the PDC circuit in 2011 when he won a Tour Card at the PDC Qualifying School.

He was a quarter-finalist later that year on his World Grand Prix debut, and also won through to the last eight at the 2015 European Championship.

Henderson was a European Tour runner-up to Michael van Gerwen in 2015 as he narrowly missed out on a maiden PDC ranking title.

The Scot defeated Van Gerwen on his way to making the semi-finals of the 2017 World Grand Prix, before an impressive run at the 2018 World Championship ended in defeat to eventual winner Rob Cross in the last 16.
