Date of birth
Michael Howard joined PNE just days after his 11th birthday in October 2010 and is now in the second year of his scholarship.
Howard is an incredibly quick and direct winger, capable of playing on either flank but most often seen on the left side where he can cut onto his favoured right foot. He has also featured as a lone striker, albeit less frequently.
Born in Southport, Howard will be hoping to continue making an impact in the final third after scoring six times for the youth team last season.
