Fred Howe (24 September 1912 in Bredbury, near Stockport, Cheshire – 1984) was an English professional footballer who played as a striker. His professional career took a while to get started, playing non-league football until he was 22, only puncuated with a brief spell at Stockport County. He was spotted by Liverpool in 1935, recommended by current player Tommy Johnson, and was quickly converted from an outside-left to a striker, a position which better suited his skills. He was Liverpool's top scorer in both 1935-36 and 36-37, but could not reproduce this form the following season, and left to join Manchester City, only to move on after a few months, joining Grimsby Town. He had managed a decent goalscoring ratio with both, but the outbreak of World War II put the brakes on his career. During the conflict, he guested for Stockport County and Watford, and returned to competitive action at its end, managing a creditable 20 goals in 30 appearances for Oldham Athletic, before being surprisingly released. This brought an end to his career.
