Henry Hore: the impressive youngster the Roar needed in their side

-

In just his third A-League Men’s appearance back in January, Henry Hore came on as a substitute and scored two minutes later from a corner.

Since then, the youngster’s career is moving in all the right directions.

After signing his first professional contract with Brisbane Roar in late 2021, attacker Henry Hore has swiftly established himself as a key player within the squad.

Ever since the 22-year-old winger scored the winner in his third professional game against Perth Glory, Hore has been named in the Roar’s starting XI, in six of his first eight games for the club.

Hore has proved himself to be a nuisance to the opposing side by streaking down the right-hand side of the field and being able to create holes and break through the defence.

His pinpoint through passes, coupled with the ability to run through the defence has caused havoc for teams the Roar face.

The young forward’s ability to create promising goal-scoring opportunities for the men in orange has been nothing short of surprising, and it’s no surprise that Hore has already got two goals under his belt in just eight A-League games.

“In recent games, I’ve been pretty happy with my individual performance,” the winger said.

“I’ve started [games] well and I’m getting a few games under my belt now, so we just need to start winning.”

Hore seems to spearhead the Roar’s attack and has proved to be a key figure in Warren Moon’s starting XI.

“It feels great. It’s a dream come true. Hopefully there’s more to come and I can keep getting minutes and keep starting,” he said.

“It’s really special [for me to starting a game]. Not so much for me but for my family and friends.

With all the hard work I’ve put in over the years, it’s great.”

The winger realises that the opportunity to feature in the starting line-up is special.

There is no doubt that Brisbane Roar fans are excited about what Hore can bring to the side.

With only glimpses of brilliance this early on in his career, fans and players alike are eager to see what the youngster can do for the Roar and for the ALM.

“The fans have been great so far.

It seems like they like me, which is good,” he said.

“I don’t really feel much pressure though. I just enjoy playing.”
