Halifax boss Chris Wilder has thrown what is believed to be a final lifeline to Howell offering him the chance to prove himself in the professional game. Howell who is ex Halifax was on trial at Brunton Park but recently stalled on contract agreements. Whilst doing so he allegedly tried to create something of a dutch auction ny offering his services to other clubs telling them Carlisle had offered him good terms.
United got wind of it and blew Howell away. His ploy seems to have backfired on him, a professional footballer he may be, but he will be plying his trade at such venues as Forest Green Rovers, Gravesend or Tamworth. Frankly, he’s welcome to it, he thoroughly deserves it.
