Wrexham AFC announced the signing of experienced goalkeeper Mark Howard in July 2022, after his contract expired with Carlisle United.
Howard began his career in the youth ranks at Arsenal, before joining Cardiff City, and later had spells in Scotland with St Mirren and Aberdeen.
He returned to England after signing for Blackpool in the Championship, making over 100 appearances for Sheffield United between 2012 and 2016.
Whilst with the Blades, he was part of the side that reached the FA Cup Semi-Finals in 2013/14 and both the League Cup Semi-Finals and the League One Play-Offs in 2014/15.
After his successful spell in Sheffield, he crossed the Pennines to join up with Phil Parkinson for the first time at Bolton.
In his first season at the Macron Stadium, Howard was part of the squad that saw Parkinson’s side gain promotion into the Championship, along with his former side Sheffield United.
From there, he joined up with Salford City and Scunthorpe respectively, before moving to Cumbria with Carlisle.
The 36-year-old played a key role in the club’s title-winning campaign last season, making 33 league appearances in total.
His contract was extended until the end of the 2023/24 season, following on from Wrexham’s promotion back to the EFL.
