The 18-year-old central defender was the only player to remain on the pitch for the full 90 minutes on Sunday, quite a way to mark his first involvement with the senior side.
"It was a big surprise," he remarked. "It was good, I enjoyed it a lot and now I know what it's like. We'll see what happens from now.
"With it being the first game back I was only expecting to get a half for the reserves, but getting a full game for the first team... It can't get much better and hopefully it carries on."
Last season's under-19 captain showed plenty of composure at Broadhall Way and if nerves came into play it didn't show. He was expecting to make way at half-time with the rest of the team and was feeling the effects of the first game back, but was delighted to stay on and showcase his talents.
"It was a good solid performance from me I thought, I was pretty happy and hopefully I can go on from there.
"It was a surprise to get a whole game and I was pleased about it. I thought I was coming off but, with a few out, it worked to my advantage and I got to play a whole game.
"I was a bit half and half, but deep down I really wanted to stay on - you've got to get as much as you can. I'm happy, but I was tired as well."
Ronnie, grandson of the Spurs double-winning legend he shares a name with, says the senior players eased his transition to a higher level of football.
"It made my game a lot easier having Jamie Redknapp and people like that around me, they came and got the ball off me, are calmer and made it easier for me.
"They make a lot more space and the quality of passing makes it easier."
Ronnie Henry claims all he expected for his first game of the season was a run-out in the reserves - it turned out to be a full game for the first team at Stevenage.
