Bowman has signed a two year deal at the Gulls as York allowed him to move on with their consent after just one season at the club.
Bowman started his career off at Carlisle United in 2009. He made 9 league appearances scoring no goals before his release in 2011. Whilst playing for Carlisle Bowman had two loan spells at Workington, making 14 league appearances in total scoring 2 goals.
Following his release from the Cumbrians Bowman signed for Darlington, scoring 10 in 40 league games but it wasn’t enough as Darlington finished in the relegation zone and due to their financial difficulties were demoted to the Northern Football League.
Bowman was snapped up by Hereford United next on a one year contract scoring 15 goals in 39 appearances finishing the season as the Bulls top scorer.
York City came in for Bowman after his impressive season at Hereford, as Bowman was under the age of 23 years old York had to pay Hereford compensation which was set as £20,000 at a tribunal. Bowman made 37 league appearances scoring eight goals for the Minstermen before being allowed to move to Torquay.
