FORMER Buntingford Town starlet Charlie Henry will be praying for the biggest upset in FA Cup history when his side Havant & Waterlooville take on the mighty Liverpool.

Henry will be part of the Havant squad that travel to Anfield on Saturday, the home of the seven-time winners, for the fourth-round of the competition.

The 20-year-old striker left Town in 2005, and since then has had spells at Arlesey, Dorchester, Haverhill Rovers, Grays Athletic and Cambridge City, before joining Havant in November 2007, where he has impressed with his skill and energy.

During the 2004/05 season, Henry scored 28 goals for the Buntingford first team that won both the Herts Senior County First Division Championship and the Herts Intermediate Cup.

Buntingford chairman Richard Daly said: "During his time at the club, Charlie was a lively striker with incredibly quick feet. His pace, control and his eye for goal was just amazing!

"I am delighted for him, and proud that Buntingford played a contribution to his early football development - and it would be great to see him play at Anfield.
