Former Shrewsbury Town keeper who joined the Pitmen on a month's loan from Vanarama National League side Solihull Moors in January 2020

A trainee at Shrewsbury from a young age, Rowley worked his way through the youth ranks signed his first professional contract with the club in the summer of 2015. He failed to make a first-team appearance in four seasons at the club, spending long spells out on loan over the next few seasons to aid his development

His first loan spell came in 2015-2016, joining Halesowen Town on a month's temporary spell, before returning to the Shrews in December 2015. The following season, Rowley was loaned out to Vanarama National League North side Chorley for a three-month spell as cover for the injured Sam Ashton

At the start of the 2017-2018 season, Rowley returned to the Midlands with a loan spell at Tamworth, where he spent the first six months of the season playing regularly for the Lambs in Vanarama National League North. Despite his impressive form, he was recalled by Shrewsbury in January 2018 before being released at the end of the season

After spending the summer on trial at a number of clubs, Rowley joined National League side FC Halifax Town on a free transfer as understudy to regular keeper Sam Johnson. He was a regular within the Halifax squad throughout the season, but could not unseat Johnson and left at the end of the 2018-2019 season

Rowley returned to the Midlands once more in August 2019 with a move to National League high-flyers Solihull, making a number of appearances on the Moors bench early on in the season before making his full debut in the club's F.A. Trophy game against Darlington in December 2019 after regular stopper Ryan Boot was ruled out

A month later, Rowley became the latest player to don the Pitmen's number one shirt as he joined the club on a month's loan with what was essentially a swap deal with former Hednesford loanee Andy Wycherley, who had been signed by Solihull in the week from parent club AFC Telford to make his loan at Hednesford null and void
