George Bowerman is back


#1

As a coach for the U11s.


#2

Wow retired already, can’t be more than 26 or 27?

One stage around 2011 he looked better prospect than Grigg. Funny how Football can work out sometimes.


#3

@SaddlerHQ He had a spell with Accrington Stanley and then into non league with Stafford Rangers among others. Has his own youth coaching business - seems like a good move for both parties


#4

Thought he had a poor attitude? Unless he’s learnt from his mistakes.


#5

Yeah I heard his attitude was rubbish. It’s a shame his football career didn’t kick on because he showed us signs that there was something there to be tapped in to. During his good spell here I thought he was a very clever striker. Just goes to show how important application and attitude are in the game if you want to succeed.


#6

His head went after that Preston hatrick.


#7

League One “player of the month” at one time, I seem to recall…


#8

Two goals in that Preston game http://www.skysports.com/football/walsall-vs-preston/262785
But it doesn’t matter much now.


#9

Ah that was September 2012 so even later than I thought. He lost his place soon after and Grigg took his chance big time with around 15 goals in 2013.


#10

Bowerman ended up drifting around the non-League scene, including an unproductive spell at Rushall Olympic, as well as Halesowen Town and Heather St. John’s. No matter what the rumours were about his personality, he is now a born-again Christian. He has found God (that must have been one hell of a pass! :grinning:).

Brilliant that last line Pedagogue, that’s made me loff!
