Welsh League top goal scorer Luke Bowen joins Carmarthen Town

Port Talbot Town’s Luke Bowen has made his return to Richmond Park as he rejoins Carmarthen Town.

The 29-year-old has scored 20 League goals for the Steelmen this season, making him the highest goal-scorer in the Welsh Football League so far this season.

He joins a Carmarthen team that is currently bottom of the Welsh Premier League on 12 points, 11 points from safety with 10 games to play in Phase Two of the season.

The signing will be a welcome addition to an Old Gold side that only managed to net 16 goals in the opening 22 games of the season, an area of the game they will need to improve if they’re to have any chance of retaining their Welsh Premier League status.

Bowen joined Carmarthen in 2013 after a spell in Australia with Port Melbourne Sharks, before leaving to re-join The Steelmen.

The striker has also featured in the Welsh Premier League for the now dissolved Neath FC and Llanelli AFC (now Llanelli Town AFC), scoring 15 goals for Neath and 7 goals for Llanelli.

He made eight appearances for Carmarthen in his first spell, failing to find the net, something he will be hoping to change this time round.

The Port-Talbot born forward will be looking to add to his 80 Welsh Premier League goals from his time at his home-town club, as the Old Gold look to him to play a crucial role in their bid for survival.
