Mike Howard

Date of birth02 December 1978
Place of birthBirkenhead
NationalityEnglish
Weight76 kg
Height1.75 m
PositionDefender/Midfielder

A regular for Swansea City in 2000-01 apart from the occasional absence due to suspension, Mike remained a very much under-rated defender.

Versatile enough to play either as a left back or on the left-hand side of midfield when a three-man back-line was employed, he is sound defensively and effective when pushing up the flank.

Mike agreed a new one-year deal with Swansea City in June 2003.
