Steven Howard

Steven (Steve) John HOWARD

Big, strong target man with no little skill on the ground, Steve scored goals wherever he went.
Born in Durham, Steve was spotted by Hartlepool while playing for Tow Law Town and was thrust straight into the first team where, as a 19 year old, he finished joint top scorer in his first season.
Bigger clubs showed interest and a £120,000 bid took him to Northampton in 1999 but, despite being successful at Sixfields, he was surprisingly allowed to move to Luton for £50,000 two years later.
At Kenilworth Road he became the club’s third highest post-war goalscorer and top-scored in each of his five seasons with the club before a £1 million move to Derby in 2006.
Steve enjoyed subsequent moves to Leicester and then back to Hartlepool before retiring to concentrate on his successful business advising current players on investing for retirement.
