Thomas William “Tommy” Bowyer (1902 – unknown) was an English footballer who played in the Football League for Clapton Orient, Gillingham, Stoke and Walsall.
Bowyer was born in Stoke-upon-Trent and joined Stoke during World War I. He played three times for Stoke in 1918–19 and once the War was over and League football resumed Bowyer decided to join Clapton Orient. He scored six goals in 22 for Orient in 1919–20 and he joined Gillingham for the 1920–21 season. But he never made an appearances for the “Gills” and went on to play for Walsall in 1921–22, scoring five goals in 40 matches.

There seems to be no further information as to whether he retired from football or moved elsewhere when he left Walsall or for that matter where he went or what he did……..
