Northern Irish International Howe joins Women’s team

Sligo Rovers are excited to announce the signing of Northern Irish International Casey Howe until at least the end of the 2023 SSE Airtricity Women’s Premier Division season.

The 20-year-old from Enniskillen joins Steve Feeney’s side from Glentoran in the Women’s Premiership in Northern Ireland.

Howe has had spells with Ballinamallard and Linfield before moving to the Glens and now will begin her career South of the border with the Bit O’ Red.

Manager Steve Feeney Is delighted with his latest recruit:

‘’Casey is a terrific player. We have been keeping track of her for a while now and are delighted to have secured her signature.

‘’It is an exciting time for the club ahead of the new season and this is a big statement of where we want to go.

‘’She will add an attacking threat and add to the quality we already have in the squad’’.

Rovers take on Athlone Town today in a pre-season friendly away from home. Preparations for the opening game of the season are in full swing as today marks four weeks to our first game against Shamrock Rovers at The Showgrounds (March 4th, 5pm).

The talented attacker has scored 32 goals in 40 appearances from her time at Linfield and Glentoran and is sure to excite Bit O’ Red supporters throughout 2023.

Howe is happy to be at The Showgrounds:

“I chose Sligo Rovers as I wanted a different challenge to that of the League in Northern Ireland and having the opportunity to play against the best teams in Ireland was something that really appealed to me.

‘’I aim to bring something different to the team and help the team move up the table.

‘’The girls have all been very welcoming and I’m looking forward to kicking off the new campaign.

‘’Knowing the quality of both Steve Feeney and Jason McCartney through my youth football at Ballinamallard really helped me in making my decision to join Sligo Rovers.”
