Eddie Returns Home!

Last updated : 12 November 2004 By Bournemouth Co-Ordinator
Eddie Howe has, once again, become a Bournemouth player, and this time it is a permanent deal that will see him remain at Dean Court for at least another 2.5 years.

The ever popular Howe originally made 183 appearances for AFC Bournemouth until his move to Fratton Park in March 2002 for £400,000. During his time in Portsmouth, he made jusy 61 minutes worth of appearances for the Premiership Club as injury almost put an end to his career.

Towards the end of last season he spent a 2 month period at Swindon Town on loan before returning to Dean Court at the start of this season on loan. His 3 month loan period ran out after the Peterborough United match last weekend, but there has been frantic activity under the guise of Eddie Share to regain his services. The launch of "Eddie Share" saw £13,500 raised in barely 2 days, which has enabled AFC Bournemouth to re-sign Eddie Howe.

He goes straight in to the squad to face Forest Green Rovers in the FA Cup on Saturday (Nov 13th).
