Samuel Paul Cowler (born 26 October 1992) is an English footballer who plays as a goalkeeper.

Cowler played for Frinton & Walton YFC before signing a youth scholarship with West Ham United in 2009. He then spent time on loan with the youth teams of Wycombe Wanderers,[2] Queens Park Rangers, Yeovil Town[3] and Barnet before being released in May 2012,[4] his only appearance in a first team squad coming when he was on the bench for a Football League Cup game against Aldershot Town on 24 August 2011.[5] Having previously spent time on loan in their youth team, in June 2012 he signed for Barnet.[6] Cowler made his debut for Barnet on 29 September 2012 in a 2–1 away defeat to Fleetwood Town, coming on as a 24th minute replacement for Ahmed Abdulla as a result of first choice goalkeeper Graham Stack being sent off.[7]

In July 2013, Cowler announced his departure from Barnet on Twitter, as he wanted first-team football and was unable to displace the reliable Graham Stack as first choice.[8] The following month, he signed for Bishop's Stortford on a one-year deal.[9]

Cowler re-joined Barnet on a one-year deal on 4 August 2014,[10] once again as backup to Stack. Cowler's only appearances in the 2014-15 season came in an FA Trophy tie against Concord Rangers and the subsequent replay defeat, but he was still awarded a league winner's medal following a successful season for the Bees.[citation needed] At the end of the season he left the Bees, again to seek first-team football.[11]
