Jordan Bowery joined from Chesterfield in August 2012 to become Paul Lambert's sixth signing for Villa.

Described as 'strong and powerful' by Lambert following his move to Villa Park, Bowery was one of a number of young, hungry additions to the squad during a busy summer.

He initially believed he would be plying his trade in the Development Squad but was pleasantly surprised as Lambert told him he would be forming part of his first-team set-up.

He produced some fine performances, too, especially against Stoke in the 3-1 win at the Britannia Stadium.

Bowery played twelve times during his debut campaign -  four from the start and eight from the bench.

His contribution has been limited this term, spending a loan spell at Doncaster in fact - but Lambert knows he can throw him in if required and not be let down.

The Spireites suffered relegation to League Two two seasons ago but the quick and tricky forward finished the campaign as top scorer, notching 12 goals overall.

Bowery also played a vital role in Chesterfield's progression to the 2012 final of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

The 21-year-old scored against Notts County in a 3-1 victory and netted twice to help his side to a 4-3 win over Tranmere, while he also featured as they beat Swindon Town 2-0 to lift the trophy at Wembley.

After progressing through the youth ranks, Bowery made his professional Chesterfield debut against Wycombe Wanderers in August 2008, making the then 17-year-old one of the club's youngest ever players.

He spent a short loan spell at non-league Barrow in 2009, making four appearances for the Bluebirds, before scoring his first Football League goal in the form of a last-minute equaliser against Bradford City in January 2011.

Bowery had already played four games, scoring against Rotherham, in 2012-13 before moving to Villa.

He made 102 total appearances for Chesterfield, scoring 17 goals.
