Howell strikes again

It has been a slow and steady road to recovery for Waterhouse's young midfielder, Kenroy Howell.

The attacker was in the form of his life in his young Premier League career, when an injury during a game against Tivoli, which required surgery, halted his progress.

After surgery in April he made a full recovery, but being out for months meant the former Jamaica College player struggled to regain the form that made him a fan favourite at Drewsland.

On Sunday, the 22-year-old gave a small reminder of his capabilities and his knack for the midfield play, as he scored the only goal in Waterhouse's 1-0 win over Cavalier.

"This is the third start from seven games and I still have more to give. I just have to come to training, work hard and show it on the pitch match time," Howell said.

In a tight contest, Waterhouse looked more dangerous in the first-half and they got the opening goal, when Howell arrived in the box and turned home Roberts' cross on 29 minutes.

The three points lifted Waterhouse out of the relegation zone and into 10th spot on seven points.

Howell was happy to be scoring goals again but was even more pleased that his goal helped lift the team from the sluggish start.

"The last time I scored, was in the Tivoli match on November 5th (2014). I feel great about it (scoring on Sunday). We are at the bottom of the table and to help my team actually get a win, which should put us couple of places up in the table, is a good thing," he said.

"Expect more, because I will be trying to put myself in the box and score more goals and I am just putting in the work as usual and hoping for the best," he added.
