Henshall joined Port Vale in May 1928 and made his debut on 20 December 1930, in a 3–2 win over Millwall at The Old Recreation Ground. After being a regular for the remainder of the season, scoring twice in 18 Second Division games, he fell out of favour. He scored four goals in 16 games in 1931–32, including one in a 9–3 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane. He featured just five times in 1932–33, and was transferred to Crewe Alexandra in January 1933. He later moved on to Stockport County, also in the Third Division North. Henshall managed 19 league appearances for Alexandra but was not picked for County before his departure to non-league football. He later turned out for Ashton National Gas.
