22 year old striker George Bowerman has said that manager James Beattie has given him the opportunity to go out there this season a prove a point with Accrington Stanley.

Having just signed a new 12 month deal at the club, seeing him through the coming campaign, having initially joined us last October following his release by Walsall in the summer, Bowerman knows he now has a good opportunity to really get his career back on track, and in the process prove a few others wrong.

When signing his deal he already talked about how uncertain a period it was when he was without a club, and he knows he didn’t entirely do himself justice last season because with no proper pre season under his belt, he was always playing catch up – but that’s obviously something he can rectify this campaign, and he told the Official Site that this was something he intends to do, and if he can, in some style.

‘There are always doubters about your career and it’s up to me to go and prove them wrong. The gaffer’s given me a chance and I want to show him and the fans at Accrington that I can do the job.’

Bowerman goes on to say that you never quite realise until you are out of the game and clubless just how hard and difficult it is to get back in again, because obviously you only have trial days and the like to try and impress, and that’s not one on one, it’s with a group of others out to do the same thing so to be able to shine above them and stand out and prove your best after a long journey, really is a test for anybody to achieve.

‘I’ve learned that the hard way. I’m trying to get my career back on track now.’

Having gone through that once already, one thing in Bowerman’s favour is he won’t need any extra motivation when it comes to digging that bit deeper when moments get tough.
