Home Button Flex connector repair

In my first attempt to repair a shattered display, unfortunately I was careless and severed the home button flex cable. It looks like I also damaged the connector clip. Can anyone tell me if this ipad is still in a repairable condition? I have a replacement home button. I need to know if I can still connect the flex ribbon to the connector and if there is a replacement clip I can buy. Please see the included picture.

The connector has to be replaced via a micro-soldering repair.
