Done deal - Hot shot Cowley 'back home' at Bromsgrove Sporting

BROMSGROVE Sporting fans’ favourite Jason Cowley is back at the club.

The 24-year-old is The Rouslers’ highest ever scorer after notching up an incredible 107 goals in 127 appearances.

‘Super Jase’ played a pivotal role in many of the club’s successes, including the 2016/17 FA Vase run, the 2017/18 MFL Premier league title win and the 2018/19 play-off final victory over Corby Town.

He arrived from Redditch United and in January 2017 became the first ever Sporting player to receive a contract.

In March last year his ‘wonder goal’ against Corby Town (below) was likened to Paul Gascoigne’s magic moment for England against Scotland in Euro 96.

Cowley’s own bit of magic was viewed half-a-million times on the BBC website.

Cowley left the club last May for League Two side Stevenage but never really settled and was loaned out to Solihull Moors in January.

But now he is back at the Victoria Ground fans will be hoping he can reproduce the prolific goal-scoring he displayed during so many of Sporting’s seasons.

Manager Bren Kelly said he was absolutely delighted with the marksman’s return.

“This deal could not have happened without our chairman, Mike Burke.

“To the extremely small minority that constantly question and challenge our chairman, please take notice of this action.

“His ambition matches mine and it’s quite clear he wants the club to progress. It has taken many man hours and patience to bring Jason home, but I’m sure it’ll be worth it.

“What’s imperative for Jason now is that he is playing regular and scoring goals. It’s a huge coup for the club and strengthens our squad massively.

“I’ve stayed in touch with Jason on an almost daily basis since he left for Stevenage and I only want the best for him.

“I’ve no doubt he will progress further again but, for now, he’s a Rousler, and I’m over the moon, as many others will be that he has returned.”
