Solihull Moors is delighted to announce the permanent signing of Sam Bowen, subject to League & FA approval!

The 23-year-old arrives at Damson Park on a two-year deal following the expiry of his contract of Newport County.

Bowen started his career with Cardiff City as a youth player, joining the side at just six years old before he progressed through the ranks.

During his time with the Bluebirds, Bowen made four senior appearances for the Club, making his debut for Cardiff in the Carabao Cup before making his league debut in a 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest.

The Wales U21 international then joined Newport County in 2022 for an undisclosed fee before a loan move to the National League with Wealdstone.

The technical midfielder is no stranger to Andy Whing’s side, having played for Wealdstone last season where he made 40 appearances for the Stones as they secured safety in the Vanarama National League.

Upon signing for Solihull, Bowen said: “I’m really excited, it’s been on the horizon now for a couple of weeks. I’m buzzing to get going and I can’t wait for pre-season to start now!”

“I like to get on the ball, be creative and try and score a few goals. Defensively, I like to think I’m pretty good at reading the game.”

Director of Football, Stephen Ward, expressed his delight on securing Sam’s services: “We are delighted to secure the services of Sam for the next two years.”

“He is a player who impressed us immensely this season and is someone we feel will fit well with our style of play. He brings real variety to our midfield and can play in a number of roles.”

“He also has experience playing at this level and we feel he can develop his talent even further at our Club.”

Welcome to Solihull, Sam!
