Jamal Lowe joined AFC Bournemouth on transfer deadline day in August 2021, the latest step in the forward’s career that has taken him from non-league to Wembley and progressively upwards through the English footballing pyramid.

Born in Harrow, as a teenager Lowe appeared for Farnborough and Barnet, signing professionally with the Bees and making his Football League debut in August 2012.

In the following three years, while playing 19 times and scoring three goals for Barnet, Lowe took in six separate loan spells in the non-league, signing for St Albans City, one of the clubs he had spent time with, in a permanent deal in 2015.

Spells in the non-league with Hemel Hempstead Town and Hampton & Richmond Borough came next, during which time Lowe was also employed as a full-time PE teacher as chances of a career as a professional appeared to be winnowing.

However, it was the move to Hampton under manager Alan Dowson that began the meteoric rise for Lowe, who quickly formed a lethal forward partnership with current Northampton Town striker Nicke Kabamba that plundered 38 goals.

In 2015/16, Hampton & Richmond Borough won the Isthmian League title and were promoted to National South.

The form of the pair was soon noticed higher up the leagues with both Lowe and Kabamba signing for League Two Portsmouth in October 2016.

Settling over his initial months at Fratton Park Lowe became a club hero by the end of his first campaign, scoring two key goals at Notts County to seal promotion for Pompey and scoring again on the final day as he claimed a League Two winners’ medal.

A solid League One campaign followed in 2017/18 before he exploded the following year, scoring 17 goals across the campaign which included an audacious chip at Wembley as Portsmouth won the EFL Trophy in front of over 85,000 supporters.

That season Lowe was also named in the PFA team of the season for League One.

In August 2019 his form led to a move up to the Championship where he linked up with former boss Paul Cook and made 48 appearances for the Latics in a season that ended in relegation.

Lowe himself would stay in the second tier, signing for Swansea City and a month later netting his first goal the following month in a win over Wycombe Wanderers.

In his opening term with the Swans Lowe switched from a role on the wing to a striking role, netting 14 times and winning the club’s goal of the season award for a fine solo effort against Cardiff City.

In 2021 the forward, who had previously received an England C call up, received senior international recognition when he made his debut for Jamaica. He celebrated his first cap with a goal in a 4-1 loss to the USA in an exhibition match played in Austria.

Loew enjoyed a positive first season at Vitality Stadium after arriving in August 2021, scoring seven goals in 43 appearances.

He scored memorable late goals in the wins over Blackpool and Stoke City, while netting against Coventry City in an important three points.
