Biography

Attacking wideman Josh Bowler joined City in July 2019 on a season long loan from Everton. The opening spell of his time at City was spent as impact substitute, becoming an occasional starter during the late Autumn months when he also scored his first goal in black and amber, a thumping drive at Fulham after controlling the ball with his mush. As time went on his pace and trickery increasingly led him down blind alleys, opponents no doubt becoming wise to his technique, and he drifted in and out of the side. His season was unfortunately summed up when he was hooked after half an hour to make way for defenders in City’s 0-8 thumping at Wigan, a chilling prelude to the Tigers’ relegation to League 1.

Joshua Luke Bowler hailed from Surrey and was came through the youth team system at Queens Park Rangers after spells at Fulham and Aldershot. He made his first team debut for the Rs in May 2017, weeks before he moved to Everton for a £4m fee. In both the 2017/18 and 2018/19 seasons he played in all three Football League Trophy fixtures for Everton’s Under-21 side, before his season long move at Hull.

Josh was not involved in first team action during the 2020/21 season and on expiry of his Everton contract in June 2021 he joined Blackpool, newly promoted to the Championship alongside his former club Hull City. At Bloomfield Road he, well, bloomed and quickly became regarded as one of the divisions most potent attacking forces. In the 2021/22 season he scored eight goals in 45 appearances and attracted the attention of several clubs. After adding a further two goals in 7 appearances for Blackpool at the start of the 2022/23 season Bowler left for newly promoted Premier League side Nottingham Forest on Augsut transfer deadline day.
