Playing career[edit]

Born in Caernarfon, Owen is a product of Chester's youth policy and has been capped by Wales at under 17 level.[4] He made his debut in The Football League for Chester away at Port Vale as a late sub when Chester were down to nine men, with his first starting appearance coming at Accrington Stanley in April 2009. He ended the season with seven league appearances to his name, as Chester suffered relegation from Football League Two.

In January 2010, he cancelled his contract with the club by mutual consent.[5] After leaving the club, Owen joined Conference rivals Wrexham on trial, scoring in a 3–2 friendly win over Welsh Premier League side Airbus UK Broughton on 20 January.[6] He failed to gain a contract but later signed for Barrow in the same division.[7] Owen spent three seasons with Barrow, but left when the club was relegated to Conference North at the end of the 2012-13 season.
