James Fowler (born 26 October 1980) is a Scottish professional footballer who is currently first team Player-coach at Queen of the South.

Club career[edit]

Fowler graduated from the Kilmarnock youth setup and was twice capped by Scotland under-21s. He played in a variety of different positions for Kilmarnock, with the longest continual spell being spent at right back. This was not thought of as his best position by many fans.[citation needed] A move to the centre of midfield has resulted in a notable improvement in form. On 18 March 2012, he played in the 2012 Scottish League Cup Final, which Kilmarnock won 1–0 against Celtic.[1] Fowler was granted a testimonial by Kilmarnock, which was played against Sheffield Wednesday on 8 August 2012.[2] Fowler holds the record for the most games played in now disbanded Scottish Premier League with 401 appearances.

On 17 January 2014, Fowler moved to Scottish Championship club Cowdenbeath on a one-month loan deal.[3] He was released by Kilmarnock at the end of the 2013–14 season.

Fowler signed for Queen of the South as first team player-coach on 27 June 2014.[4]

International career[edit]

In February 2007, Fowler was rewarded for his development with a late call up to the Scotland B squad against Finland. He played the last 25 minutes in a 2–2 draw, the venue being Rugby Park, his club's home ground.
