Robins boost their defensive options with new arrival

4 July 2019

Antigua & Barbuda international Dan Bowry has become the latest arrival this summer at the Jonny-Rocks Stadium.

He has signed a one-year contract with the club and joins having left Charlton Athletic at the end of last season.

A 21-year-old who hails from London, Bowry is a central defender and his signing sees him become the fifth player brought in by Michael Duff ahead of the new 2019/20 campaign.

He has been on the books of Charlton for the past five years and in that time has gained senior experience in loan spells in the Bostik Premier Division with Kingstonian and National League South at Hampton & Richmond Borough.

He's gained international honours for Antigua & Barbuda as part of Michél Dinzey's national squad, representing the Benna Boys in their CONCACAF Gold Cup qualifiers.

Speaking after signing for the club, Bowry said: "I came here at the end of last season for two weeks and I'm just happy that it has been sorted and I'm ready to go for pre-season.

"Moving away from home is going to be a challenge, but I think it's perfect timing really so I can focus on my football and get going."

Bowry's father, Bobby, is a former professional himself who made over 400 career appearances with the likes of Crystal Palace, Millwall and Colchester United.

Cheltenham fans will get the opportunity to take a first look at the defender in action when the Robins head to Stratford Town on Saturday 13 July for the team's first pre-season fixture.

Bowry's player sponsorship for his home and away kits is now available. To find out more about sponsoring the club's newest recruit, email for details.
