Forfar, Angus born inside left Frank Lowson started with local junior club Forfar Celtic in 1919 (now Forfar Albion FC), before joining Dundee in 1920. In June 1921 he joined Second Division Bradford Park Avenue, making his Football League debut at Leicester City in September 1921 and scoring his first goal two days later in a home win against West Ham United. Whilst there he played for the Yorkshire League against the Irish League at Cliftonville and scored twice that autumn in 9 matches before Christmas in a season that saw Bradford suffer their second successive relegation.
He made 3 further appearances for Bradford in the Third Division (North) between September and December 1922, before joining Exeter City in August 1923. He spent most of his time at St James’ Park in the reserve team and his first team appearances at Exeter were limited to a mere four, between September 1923 and February 1924, after which he made the long switch to Barrow in July 1924, finally getting serious game time and making 34 first team appearances for The Bluebirds, scoring twice, before returning to the South coast to join non league Poole in 1926.
NB whether he is related to or was the Father of Frank Lowson, born 1925 in Bradford, and a Yorkshire and England test cricketer in the early 1950’s, is also unclear. It seems perfectly possible that they are related.
