1. Sam Howes

The promising young goalkeeper joined Woking in the summer of 2019 following his release by Premier League side Watford, a club the Cards know well, having faced them in the third round of the FA Cup the previous season.

Sam started his career with Crystal Palace before joining West Ham United at 10-years-old. It was with the Hammers where he really began to catch the eye, making his Under-18’s debut at the age of just 15, before subsequently being named on the bench for the first-team game against Liverpool in January 2016 and winning the Young Hammer of the Year Award. During his time at Upton Park he also featured on an international level for England as he won caps across four age groups from Under-16 to Under-19. He was released by the London club in the summer of 2017 but was quickly snapped up by Watford following a successful trial. From there, he immediately went out on loan, joining then Hampton and Richmond Borough boss Alan Dowson for the first-half of the 2017/18 season, a campaign which ended with the Beavers reaching the National League South play-off final.

Another loan opportunity came at Eastbourne Borough mid-way through the following season where Sam quickly became a first-team regular. He remained with the club through until the end of the season, helping them avoid relegation from the National League South by a three-point cushion, with the standout result being a 6-0 win over play-off chasing Dartford in the final weeks of the season. He now joins Dowse for the second time in his career looking to establish himself in the National League at the first attempt and prove just why he’s been so highly rated throughout his youth career.
