Lowden began in Box Hill's reserves and was promoted to their senior side in 2010.[3] He played in a premiership with Box Hill in 2013. In round 12 of the 2014 AFL season, Lowden finally made his AFL debut for Hawthorn against West Coast, finishing the game with 15 hitouts and 3 goals.[4] Despite his strong performance Lowden did not play another AFL game for the season, and at the end of the season sought greater opportunities at another club.
