Ronnie Stephen Henry (born 20 January 1984) is an English footballer who plays for League One side Stevenage. Henry was the first ever player to lift a competitive trophy at the new Wembley Stadium in May 2007.

Henry started his career on the books at Tottenham Hotspur, and although he was a regular feature in the reserve side, he never played a first team game during his three year spell with the North London club. In 2003, he was sent on loan to Southend United until the end of the 2002 03 season playing three times for the club. In November 2003, Henry was released by his parent club after being deemed surplus to requirements. He spent nine months without a club, before signing for Irish side Dublin City on a short term contract in August 2004. Henry played 12 times for Dublin before being released four months later due to financial problems at the club.

In January 2005, Henry joined Hertfordshire side Stevenage until the end of the club's 2004 05 campaign. He was part of the side that made the Conference National play off final in 2005, falling one game short of promotion to the Football League. The following season, he was made captain, and was part of the Stevenage side that won the FA Trophy in the first ever competitive final at Wembley Stadium; ultimately becoming the first ever player to lift a competitive trophy at the new stadium in May 2007. He was transfer listed during Peter Taylor's reign at the club after failing to agree a new contract in January 2008, but eventually committed his long term future to the club when Graham Westley was re appointed as manager in May 2008. He enjoyed FA Trophy success once more in 2009, before being an instrumental part of the side that earned promotion to the Football League the following season. Henry also played a key part during the club's 2010 11 campaign, helping Stevenage earn promotion to League One. He has also played four times for the England C team.
