Wayne Hennessey Life

Wayne Robert Hennessey (born 24 January 1987) is a Welsh professional footballer who plays for Premier League clubs Crystal Palace and the Welsh national team. While on loan at Stockport County, Hennessey's first professional games saw him set a new League Two record for consecutive clean sheets.

Over eight seasons, including three years at Premier League level, he played 166 times for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

He jumped to Crystal Palace in 2014 after several injury setbacks. Hennessey, a full international since 2007, has earned more than 80 caps for Wales.


Wayne Hennessey Career

Early life and career

Hennessey's cousin Terry Hennessey, who earned 39 caps for Wales from 1962 to 1972, has played for the Welsh. Hennessey, born in Bangor, Gwynedd, and raised in Anglesey's Beaumaris, speaks Welsh, but after school, moved to Connah's Quay High School because it was quicker to travel to Manchester. Hennessey began as a student at Manchester City but was dismissed in 2003, whereupon he joined Wolverham Wanderers' youth academy. He started his career in promotions and then moved to the top, earning him his first professional deal in April 2005.

Hennessey was sent by Wolves' reserve and youth teams during the 2005–06 season in the hopes of gaining first-team service, but he was recalled to Wolves after suffering with an injury to their first-choice goalkeeper Matt Murray. He did return to Bristol City in August 2006 on a one-month loan contract, but he did not turn up and returned to his parent club early due to an arm injury.

Club career

Hennessey joined Stockport County in January 2007 on a one-month loan to gain first-team football. On his senior debut against Boston United, he kept a clean sheet, and after retaining another five clean sheets in subsequent matches, his loan term was extended by an additional month.

He went on to set a Football League record of nine straight clean sheets and victories. Stockport beat Swindon Town 3–0 on March 3, 2007, breaking the 119-year-old record. He was named Player of the Month for February 2007 after this achievement. In addition, his feat has earned him a county record for the longest time without conceding a goal, beating Harry Hardy's 85-year-old record. Oliver Allen of Barnet scored on 10 March 2007 in 857 minutes from the start of his competitive club debut against Boston United on January 13, 2007 to Oliver Allen of Barnet's on March 10, 2007. He did not lose in his first nine-and-a-half matches of competitive club football.

Hennessey was recalled by Wolves in April 2007 after another injury to first-choice Matt Murray and finding himself on the substitutes bench for several games. Hennessey stepped in to make his Wolves debut when Murray fell on his shoulder on the eve of the Championship play-off semi-finals against local rivals West Bromwich Albion.

Murray was out for the entirety of the 2007–08 season due to yet another injury, Hennessey became firmly established as the club's number one, being an ever-present in the league and signing a new extended deal. He was voted on the 2007–08 PFA Championship Team of the Year, as well as being named Wolves' Player of the Season at the end of the season. In their Top 50 Football League Players list, FourFourTwo magazine ranked him 22nd.

Hennessey and Wolves got off to a promising start in the first nine league games. Hennessey's fine run came to an end against Reading, who lost by a 0–3 margin. Mick McCarthy was fired from the bench shortly after, citing mental exhaustion as the reason. Carl Ikememe, a reserve keeper, was deputised and impressed enough to leave Hennessey on the sidelines until an injuryruled him out for the majority of the season. Hennessey recovered and held his position in goal for the remainder of the season, culminating in promotion to the Premier League as champions after a five-year absence.

Hennessey qualified for the club in 2009-2010 Premier League as the club's first choice goalkeeper, making his 100th senior appearance for the club in a 2–2 draw at Stoke City in October 2009. However, he was swapped by more experienced Marcus Hahnemann after losing four goals in two straight games, but the club remained on the bench for the remainder of the season.

Hennessey's contract with Wolves ran until the summer of 2015. Hahnemann retaining the top spot in the following season until his own inability, leading to Hennessey's return to the starting lineup in November 2010. He stayed in charge of the remainder of the season after the club barely escaped relegation on the final day.

Hennessey was part of the Wolves' defense team that lost 30 straight league games without a clean sheet in 2011. They eventually tied Sunderland in a goalless draw in April 2012, but by then, the squad was already in last place. Despite the game coming to a stop-play this season, Hennessey had bad news about him when he suffered from a torn cruciate knee ligament injury during it, which would have to keep him sidelined until Autumn 2012. He re-injured the knee during preparation in November 2012, keeping him out of action for the remainder of the 2012–13 season.

He made his return to the Wolves' goal during pre-season, with the club now in League One having suffered two relegations following Hennessey's first injury, but he was not chosen to start the club's opening games. As he recovers from his long-term injury issues, it was decided on August 12th, 2013 that the goalkeeper will spend a month on loan at Yeovil Town. However, Hennessey suffered with a hamstring injury while on international service with the Welsh national team, and so the proposed loan was scrapped. However, after an injury to Yeovil's replacement goalkeeper Sam Johnstone Hennessey, he was formally accepted by Yeovil Town on an initial one-month loan, which was later extended to 17 November 2013. In a 0–3 loss to Derby County on August 24, 2013, he made his Yeovil debut. Hennessey received the man of the match award after the Glovers secured their first ever home win at Championship by defeating Nottingham Forest.

Hennessey returned to Wolves after his loan spell with Yeovil, but not in goal, as Carl Ikeme was displaced in goal. Hennessey declined to participate in the following match against Gillingham in January 2014 after Ikeme sustained an injury, sparking rumors that he wanted to move away from the club. Despite later apologizing for his inability to play, he did not return to Wolves and discussions with Premier League team Crystal Palace followed.

Hennessey joined Crystal Palace on a three-and-a-half year contract for an undisclosed fee, according to media reports, it could be an initial £1.6 million with add-on terms. Hennessey made his Philadelphia debut with the Eagles in the team's last game of the Premier League season, a 2–2 draw with Fulham on May 11, 2014.

Hennessey's first game of the 2014–15 season came with a 3–0 victory over Walsall in the Football League Cup second round. Julián Speroni, an injured first-choice goalkeeper, was brought to a 2-2 draw against West Bromwich Albion on October 25. He ended the season in Palace's last two league matches, victories over Liverpool and Swansea City, giving him his first Premier League clean sheet for the club.

Hennessey was chosen to start the Premier League fixture against Watford after starting in Palace's 2015-16 Football League Cup second and third round matches. Palace beat Vicarage Road 1–0 and kept his position as the team's first-choice goalkeeper, making five consecutive appearances. He maintained his clean sheet. He was in the 2016 FA Cup Final and lost 2–1 to Manchester United after extra time.

In July 2018, Hennessey began a three-year contract. However, he did compete with new signing Vicente Guaita to be the starting goalkeeper during the ensuing season. In the upcoming season, the Spaniard was the first choice.

Hennessey was out of service from October 2020 to the following February due to a thigh injury during an international match. Since being released, he left Crystal Palace in July 2021.

Following his release from Crystal Palace and a two-year contract, Hennessey joined Burnley on a free transfer on July 2021. He made his EFL Cup debut against Newcastle United on August 25th, retaining a clean sheet in a goalless draw and then saving from Allan Saint-Maximin and Miguel Almirón in a 4–3 penalty shootout victory. He was back-up to Nick Pope in the league and played only in two 3–1 losses at Manchester United and Leeds United at the start of the year, when the Englishman had COVID-19; the Clarets suffered relegation.

Following Burnley's relegation to Nottingham Forest, Hennessey returned to the Premier League on July 1522. In the second round of the EFL Cup, he made his debut on August 23rd, winning by 3–0 at Grimsby Town.

International career

At least 17, 19, under 19, and under-21, Hennessey was capped for Wales. He scored on the under-19 side of Turkey with a 40-yard free kick.

In a 2–2 friendly draw against New Zealand on May 26, 2007, he made his international debut for Wales and has since established himself as the country's first-choice goalkeeper. In a 1–0 away victory over Cyprus in UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying, Hennessey made his 50th appearance for Wales on September 3rd, leaving a clean sheet on record.

Hennessey was in all ten of Wales' qualifying games for UEFA Euro 2016, losing only four times as they reached their first major international tournament since the 1958 FIFA World Cup. He was selected in Wales' 23-man squad for the tournament as first choice goalkeeper, but he was forced to miss the tournament's opening game, a 2–1 victory over Slovakia, after being forced to change Danny Ward after suffering a back spasm prior to the game. Hennessey started the remaining matches as Wales advanced to the semi-finals of the tournament before losing to Portugal.

Hennessey maintained his clean sheet with Wales in a 1–0 UEFA Nations League victory over Finland on September 3, 2020, breaking the previous record held by Neville Southall. He was selected for the postponed UEFA Euro 2020 but Ward was still second-choice, but he had to be recalled after being injured. In a 1-1 friendly match draw against the Czech Republic at the Cardiff City Stadium, Hennessey earned his 100th cap for Wales on March 29, 2022.

Hennessey made nine saves, the most in 2022 European World Cup qualifying without conceding, to win by 1–0 over Wales and a spot in the 2022 FIFA World Cup for the first time since 1958.
