Joe Howe (born 21 January 1988) is an English footballer who played in the League Cup and the Football League Trophy for Milton Keynes Dons. Since November 2010 he has played for Ebbsfleet United.

Howe was born in Sidcup, Kent. He started his career in the academy at Milton Keynes Dons and was handed his first professional contract in the summer of 2006. Howe made his first-team debut in the starting eleven for the League Cup victory against Colchester United on 22 August 2006. He spent time on loan at Walton & Hersham to gain experience, and made another appearance for MK Dons, this time in the Football League Trophy. Howe left for Gravesend & Northfleet during the January 2007 transfer window, but made only one appearance, as a substitute, in the Conference.

After a trial with Northampton Town Howe was given a short-term contract with the club in July 2007, but manager Stuart Gray released him before the start of the season, feeling that he had little chance of breaking into a strengthened side.

A few weeks afterwards, Howe signed for Conference North side Kettering Town but found first team opportunities limited and signed for his local club Welling United a few months later. Howe finished the 2007 08 season with Welling but left when manager Andy Ford told him he could not guarantee him first-team football for the coming season. Howe played reserve games for Crystal Palace towards the end of the 2007 08 season as part of a trial which proved unsuccessful. In August 2008 Howe joined Fisher Athletic, where he was appointed captain. He played a reserve game on trial for Gillingham in December 2008, then signed for Croydon Athletic in February 2009 before rejoining Ebbsfleet United in October 2010 after the problems faced by Croydon Athletic.
