Biographical data
Name: Howell, Percy  
Born:
Died:
 
Notes:
Brother of 'A. Howell', who also played for the City of London Club in the early 1890s. It is often very difficult to differentiate between them and 'J.D. Howell', yet another London player active at the same time. The Manchester Weekly Times of 3 Feb. 1893 lists 'F. Howell' of London in error, where the Birmingham Daily Post of 30 Jan. 1893 lists 'P. Howell' in the same event.
