John Bowers is a talented batter/wicket-keeper who has played Minor County and MCCU cricket, including a solitary first-class match against Essex in April 2018.

He has been a heavy run-scorer in club cricket, both home and abroad, in recent years. In-fact, his run spree in the Northamptonshire Premier, when finishing as the League's highest run-scoring wicket-keeper in 2017, culminated with a Minor Counties debut for Huntingdonshire.

Thereafter, he represented Cambridge MCCU against both Surrey and Essex, before heading down under to play for Port Melbourne in the Cricket Southern Bayside Competition in 2018/19. He impressed, hitting 129 in only his second outing for the club, and finished the season with 495 runs at 33.

Bowers returned to the UK prior to the 2019 season and, following 2,488 runs at 28.60 and a chart-topping 2018 season (644 runs at 35.78) for Brixworth, moved to Beaconsfield for their Thames Valley League campaign in 2019.

He was one of the stand-out performers in the TVCL, topping the run charts with 1,114 runs at 92.83. It's no surprise Beaconsfield was swift to re-sign their run machine for another stint in 2020, following another season down under last winter (337 runs at 28.08). Unfortunately, the pandemic put pay to the majority of the TVCL season, but Bowers continued to excel throughout the full 2021 campaign hitting 697 runs at 49.79.

Due to an impending house move (near Kettering, Northants), Bowers won't be returning to Beaconsfield in 2022 and is therefore seeking a club in the Northamptonshire, or leagues locally.
