EUAN HENDERSON signed off his Alloa loan spell with four goals in a five star performance.

The Hearts loanee scored 17 goals for the Wasps this season and his final appearance proved to be a terrific way to say goodbye to the Wasps.

Speaking exclusively to Advertiser Sport, he said: "It was very good. We started the game very well, moving it nicely. Bit of rain on the astroturf made it easy to move the ball.

"Obviously it's unfortunate Andy gets sent off but the reaction from the team to stay in the game with 10 men and play good football shows the willingness and the desire of the whole team and that's what I've enjoyed this season.

"It was a bit ironic how the season came full circle in the last game. We've dominated games and then had a man sent off and had to sit back and defend and maybe lose the game but it shows character that we've came on from those times."

Reflecting on his four goals, the first time he's scored four in a professional match, he said: "After the red card I thought maybe I could get a goal but the way my luck has been going the past 10 games I couldn't really score, couldn't get an assist either so it was just a thing of getting that one goal.

"Once I got that one goal I was very comfortable in front of goal when I got my chances to score so it's good – excellent to finish the season with four goals. Credit to Ross [MacIver] as well for giving me three assists."

Henderson also reflected on the different ways he's been utilised by the two managers he's played under for Alloa.

He said: "To be honest with different managers we've played different ways.

"Under [Barry] Ferguson I was more of a lone nine and it ended up I'd get one or two chances in the game and score.

"With [Brian] Rice he's got me on the ball more and I've had to change my game again to getting on the ball and getting the ball to feet again."

With Alloa finishing fifth, Henderson says it's been a great learning curve for him and says the team have learned plenty of lessons in a hectic campaign.

"It's been really good," he continued. "Great bunch of people, great bunch of lads. Everyone's helped each other, we've got everyone's back and we've came out the better side of it.

"We've finished fifth and we were struggling when the new gaffer came in so it shows a togetherness that's always been there.

"It's sad to leave," the youngster added.

"Hindsight's a great thing; there's countless games when we were winning the game and lost goals with 10 [or] 15 minutes to go, but you learn from those experiences and take it forward, that's all you can do.

"You can't do anything about it now. Everyone's learned a lot."
