Matthew Bowman joins DAFCWednesday, 29th May 2019
English youngster pens 2 year deal with The Pars.
DAFC are pleased to announce the signing of Matthew Bowman on a 2 year contract.
Matthew was part of Middlesbrough and Hull City’s youth academy, but left Hull City at his own request to accept a 2 year bursary award offered to him by Repton School in Derbyshire, which allowed him to complete his A levels and be involved in their excellent football programme.
He was a star performer in the English Independent Schools Team, which is a very accomplished group of players for their age. He captained his age group.
Having completed his studies, he now wishes to resume his football development, and had a number of options at some elite clubs in England. However, Matthew spent two trial spells with our club last season, and it also allowed his family to see around our club and meet everyone.
Therefore, we are delighted that he sees his future at East End Park, being given the opportunity to develop further in a first team environment.
Matthew can play right back or right midfield, with good energy and delivery.
