Chris Gowans was recruited from Werribee Football Club to the St Kilda Football Club of the Australian Football League with the 25th selection in the 1999 Rookie Draft. He failed to play a senior game at St Kilda, so moved to Central District along with twin brother James Gowans, both players league debuting in 2000. He is the only player to win the Jack Oatey Medal twice.
Chris, along with twin brother James, has played in an unprecedented 17 consecutive Grand Finals (1995 - 97 with Anglesea, 1998 with Werribee, 1999 with St Kilda Reserves, 2000 - 11 with Central District).
