English-born Northern Irish football manager, former professional
footballer and sports television pundit. As a player he was a
striker from 1983 until 2001, notably in the Premier League for
Southampton, Crystal Palace and West Ham United. He earned 59 caps
for Northern Ireland, scoring 12 goals. He also played in the
Football League for Luton Town, Fulham and Queens Park Rangers, and
in Non-league for Cheshunt, St Albans City and Hendon. After
retiring from playing he went on to manage Oldham Athletic, Crystal
Palace, Charlton Athletic, Coventry City, Queens Park Rangers and
Hull City (Football Management Consultant). Born in Hatfield,
Hertfordshire, Dowie was rejected by Southampton aged 16 and later
went to the University of Hertfordshire to study for a M.Eng Degree
in Engineering. On completion he became an employee of British
Aerospace, whilst keeping up football at non-League level playing
for Cheshunt alongside his brother Bob. He left Cheshunt to improve
his fitness and signed for St Albans City, then moved on to Hendon.
While playing for Hendon, Dowie was spotted by Luton Town who
signed him in the 1988-89 season, when they were in the First
Division. An old-fashioned centre-forward, he then moved in quick
succession to Fulham (a brief loan spell), before establishing
himself as a first team player in the 1989-90 season when his eight
goals in 29 league games helped Luton finish seventh. On 22 March
1991, with Luton still in the First Division and Dowie still a
first team regular with seven goals from 29 games that season,
Dowie agreed to join Second Division promotion chasers West Ham
United for a fee of 480,000. He proved himself to be a competent
deputy for the injured Trevor Morley as his four goals in the final
12 league games of the season secured the team's promotion as
Second Division runners-up. But when the 1991-92 season began,
Morley had returned to fitness and Dowie found himself on the
sidelines until h
