T4O Exclusive: In Conversation With Callum Hendry Of St. Johnstone – Stepping Out Of The Shadows

A Hearts-supporting digital communications guy with an enthusiasm for writing about football.

When I sat down to chat with Callum Hendry, I wanted to make sure of one thing… that the conversation wasn’t dominated by the topic of his dad, Colin.

Callum is a footballer in his own right – but, of course, it is impossible to ignore the status of his old man. Hendry Senior has an English Premier League winners medal in the cabinet and over 50 caps for the national team, including a few at a World Cup… with credentials like that, Cal was destined for a career on the football pitch. And it’s obvious where his inspiration comes from.

“I honestly don’t think I would still be a footballer if it wasn’t for my dad.”

All of that said, the young St Johnstone striker is ready to step out of the shadows and really start to make a name for himself. His desire to be known as “Callum Hendry at St Johnstone” is clear.

In this feature-length interview, we covered it all. His upbringing in football, his time at Blackburn, the move up north to St Johnstone and his ambitions for the future. To his credit, Callum also spoke very openly about the tough times in his childhood and how hard he has worked to overcome adversity and make it in the game.
