Steve Claridge has moved quickly to sign striker Owen Howe for Salisbury after he had been released by Evo-Stik League South Premier side Tiverton Town.
Howe, 23, turned down offers from a clutch of other Evo-Stik League South, West Clubs, and at higher levels, preferring to go to the Ray Mac.
Despite scoring eight times this season, he has been out of favour with manager Martyn Rogers, who let him go last week. To keep his eye in, Howe played last Saturday for Willand Rovers in the Toolstation Western League, scoring two early goals to set them on the path to a 3-0 win over Longwell Green.
Manager Steve Claridge comments:
“He really wants to come and play for us, which is important. We’ve been monitoring his situation at Tiverton for a little while, watching and waiting, and I’m delighted we have persuaded him to come.”
“Owen is a proper centre-forward. We know all about him and what we are going to get. He is honest, will work hard and give us 100 per cent, along with a physical presence.”
