•Jonathan Anthony Bewers (born 10 September 1982) is an English footballer born in Kettering, Northamptonshire, who played in the Premier League for Aston Villa and in the Football League for Notts County and Walsall. He played as a defender or in midfield. Throughout his career, he has been known as Jonathan Bewers, Jon Bewers, Johny Bewers and currently Jonny Bewers.
Bewers came through the Football Association’s National School of Excellence at Lilleshall, and began his club career as a schoolboy with Aston Villa. He turned professional in 1999, captained the club’s reserve team as a 17-year-old, and made his first-team debut as a late substitute in the Premier League game against Tottenham Hotspur at White Hart Lane on 15 April 2000. Villa won the game 4–2.
However, although Bewers remained at Villa for another four years, that was his last first-team appearance. After trials with Macclesfield Town and A.F.C. Bournemouth, he was released in March 2004 to join Notts County until the end of the season. He made three appearances from the substitute’s bench, but failed to earn himself a contract extension. Bewers had another trial with Bournemouth in July 2004, before joining Walsall on non-contract terms in September. He made just one appearance before being released to join Kidderminster Harriers in November. He left without appearing for the first team, and then had a brief stay with Kettering Town.
He signed for Southern League Premier Division club Aylesbury United in September 2005 and scored his first senior competitive goal for the club, a curled free kick to open the scoring in a 1–1 draw against Team Bath, on 1 October 2005. He played 20 games in all competitions before being released in February 2006. While studying for a BA degree in accounting and finance at the University of Northampton, Bewers played for the university football team, which qualified for the British Universities Sports Association Nationals Tournament in February 2006.
In March 2006, Bewers had a trial with Stamford, but signed for Cogenhoe United before the 2006–07 season. Bewers soon moved on to Rothwell Town, where he was appointed captain, and where he remained until he completed his degree course, graduating in 2008. After his spell with Rothwell was terminated, Bewers announced his retirement from the game due to injury. Despite this, he later moved on to Stamford before the 2008–09 season, before being promptly loaned out to Rothwell Corinthians.
Bewers left Stamford following his loan at Rothwell Corinthians and is now unattached.
