Stowmarket Town have welcomed experienced midfielder Dave Cowley to the Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division club.

The 29-year-old joined the Old Gold & Blacks in time to make his debut in the 2-1 win against Long Melford last Saturday.

Cowley began his career in the youth set-up at West Ham United before leaving the Hammers to join Southend United in 2006.

A spell in the USA followed for the midfielder before he joined the Glenn Hoddle Academy in Spain in 2008, where he would go on to play for Spanish sides Industrial and Recreativo de Huelva.

Cowley moved back to the UK in 2010 and signed for Harlow Town, where he won the player of the year award in his first season at the Essex club.

Spells at Grays Athletic, AFC Sudbury, Needham Market, Thurrock and Cheshunt followed, while last season saw him help Thurrock win promotion via the Bostik North play-offs.

Cowley, who was chosen in the Bostik North team of the year for 2016/17, signed a one-year deal with AFC Sudbury in May this year and started the season with the Yellows.

However, following the arrival of new manager Mark Morsley he was released from his contract earlier this month and has now signed for Stow.
