Daniel Bowles (born 19 October 1991) is an Australian football (soccer) player who currently plays for Brisbane Roar.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Bowles played all of his junior football in Toowoomba, initially with St Albans Football Club followed by the South Toowoomba Hawks and made his senior debut at 15 with the Toowoomba Raiders who play in the Brisbane Premier League (BPL).

Brisbane Roar[edit]

In 2008, Daniel Bowles signed with Brisbane Roar, participating in the club's inaugural National Youth League season, where the Roar would finish third, just missing out on a spot in the final. The following season, Bowles would feature heavily, being a sturdy defender in what was a dismal season for the team. On 7 February 2011, Bowles was called up to the senior team following the departure of former player of the season, Luke DeVere. He signed a one-year contract that took him through to the end of that season.[2]

Gold Coast United[edit]

In 9 September's edition of the Courier Mail, it was reported that Bowles would trial at Right Back for Gold Coast United in a pre season match later in the month.

On 16 December 2011 he made his debut for A-League club Gold Coast United.[3] On 9 March 2012 Bowles scored his first senior career goal against Newcastle Jets.

Adelaide United[edit]

On 22 March 2012 it was announced Bowles had signed a two-year undisclosed contract with Adelaide United in the A-League.[4] On 2 May 2014, it was announced that Bowles, as well as colleague Jake Barker-Daish were released from the club.[5]

Return to Brisbane Roar[edit]

On 8 July 2014, 3.5 months after being released by Adelaide United, Bowles signed with Brisbane Roar.[6] Bowles made his debut for the Roar in the 4–0 plundering of the Newcastle Jets at Hunter Stadium. Bowles was awarded his first red card of the season in the Roar's 3–2 away win against Adelaide United. He received the red card after holding back defender Nigel Boogaard, who was later found out to be offside, and Adelaide were apportioned a penalty. Despite this, Bowles featured in the Round 25 Team of the Week. He featured in three of the Roar's ACL fixtures, being part of the defensive team that kept a cleansheet against Beijing Guoan.

Bowles obtained a serious knee injury in January 2017, ruling him out for the remainder of the season. He returned to play the beginning of the next season.
