Born in England,[2] Bowyer was part of a strong Collingwood side during his career and played in four premiership teams. He played on a wing and back pocket respectively in the 1929 and 1930 premierships and in the ruck for their 1935 and 1936 premierships. Bowyer retired in 1938 after believing, wrongly, that he had a stomach ulcer.
