Phil Howe joined Willand Rovers in the summer of 1976. After spending 2 season at Exeter City as their second choice goalkeeper, Phil was a fine young goalkeeper. And was probably very unlucky not to get it professional contract, I saw Phil at first hand because I joined Willand Rovers at the same time from Heavitree United where I had spent four enjoyable. seasons. And only back in June we lost a great friend and  goalkeeper.. Phil unfortunately passed away after heart attack. So RIP PHIL HOWE GREAT FRIEND AND A LEGEND
