Pen Pic

Lovell is the brother of Cherries manager Eddie Howe and is now having his second spell at Dean Court.

Lovell first joined the Cherries in 1998, but after just one start and six substitute appearances he joined Portsmouth for 250,000 in August 1999.

After three years and various loan spells, Lovell moved to Scotland, initially to Dundee.

In Scotland during spells at Dundee, Aberdeen, Falkirk and Partick, Lovell made 235 appearances scoring 72 goals including 1 goal against Bayern Munich in the 2008 UEFA Cup for Aberdeen.

In 2008 Lovell came close to re-joining AFC Bournemouth, before deciding to extend his stay in Scotland with Falkirk.

But a year later Lovell had left Scottish Premier League side Falkirk with the intention of joining the Cherries.

Lovell spent pre-season training with the squad, but his signing was blocked by the Football League. He went on to join Scottish Football League First Division side Partick Thistle on a temporary contract and went on to make 16 appearances (6 from the bench), scoring 3 times. But an ankle injury cut short his Partick career and he underwent surgery in a bid to be fully fit for the following season.

Despite the Football League transfer embargo being relaxed, the Football League still had to ratify all of AFC Bournemouth`s transfer activity, but they finally cleared the Cherries to sign Steve Lovell during the summer of 2010 on a one year contract.

Lovell missed the majority of his first season back at Dean Court through an ankle injury, but returned to fitness in time for the end of season run-in, scoring a brace in the Cherries dramatic Play-Off Semi Final second leg at Huddersfield.

In September 2011 Lovell announced his early retirement due to injury.
