George Oliver Bowerman (born 6 November 1991) is an English professional footballer who plays as a striker for Accrington Stanley. He began his career with Walsall, and spent brief periods with non-League clubs Redditch United and Woking before joining Stanley in October 2013.

Career[edit]

Walsall[edit]

Bowerman was born in Sedgley, West Midlands,[2] and came through the Walsall youth academy to sign professional forms with the club in summer 2010.[3] In February 2011, he joined Conference North club Redditch United on loan to gain first team experience.[4] Despite not featuring for the Saddlers in 2010–11, he was given a new six-month contract at the end of the season.[5]

He made his Walsall debut at the Bescot Stadium on 9 August 2011, replacing Ryan Jarvis 81 minutes into a 3–0 defeat to Middlesbrough in the League Cup.[6][7] He scored his first professional goal after coming on as a substitute in a 4–2 home defeat to Bury on 19 November.[6] Bowerman began 2012–13 with six goals from eleven games, but scored only once more in the remainder of the season,[8] and was released.[9]

Accrington Stanley[edit]

After playing twice for Woking in the Conference,[10] Bowerman joined League Two club Accrington Stanley in October 2013 until the end of the season.[9]
