THE BANTAMS BRING IN BOWERY

20 November 2015

On the eve of the club's Sky Bet League 1 fixture at Scunthorpe United, Bantams boss Phil Parkinson has strengthened his attacking options by signing striker Jordan Bowery on loan from Championship side Rotherham United.

Bowery penned a loan deal at City's training ground this Friday which will keep him at the Coral Windows Stadium until the game with Gillingham on 2 January 2016.

With James Hanson struggling with a twisted ankle, Bowery - subject to receiving the relevant clearances - could now be named in City's match-day squad for the match at Glanford Park.

Standing at 6' 1'', Bowery, 24, has the power and stature to trouble opposing defenders. He will wear squad number 21 during his time with the Bantams.

Bowery has featured eight times for Rotherham this season, his most recent appearance for the Millers coming as a second half substitute at Middlesbrough at the start of this month.

Born in Nottingham, Bowery begun his professional career at Chesterfield after coming through their youth team ranks.

While at Chesterfield, Bowery actually scored his first Football League goal against City in a 2-2 draw at the Proact Stadium back in January 2011.

Bowery netted 12 goals for Chesterfield during the following 2011/2012 season, form which eventually earned the athletic striker a move to Premier League side Aston Villa at the start of the next campaign.

He made 22 appearances for Aston Villa over two seasons before joining Rotherham for a then club-record fee in the summer of 2014.

The striker scored 5 times in 36 games for Rotherham last season to help the Millers survive in their first campaign back in the Championship.
