Date of birth
Ryan Lowe joined the Pilgrims in June 2019 from Bury, having guided the Shakers to promotion from Sky Bet League Two during his first full season in management in 2018-19.
After leaving Liverpool’s Academy as a teenager, he started his career in non-league with Burscough. A prolific striker at that level, Lowe was handed his chance in the Football League with Shrewsbury in 2000.
After spells with Chester City, Crewe, Stockport County and Chester again, his association with Bury started in 2009. While there, he broke a 53-year-old club record by scoring in eight consecutive league games – the record breaker coming against former club Shrewsbury.
Upon leaving Gigg Lane in 2011, he spent a season each at Sheffield Wednesday, MK Dons and Tranmere before returning to Bury in 2014, scoring 15 times in 53 outings.
He would depart once more in 2016, joining Crewe on loan, and stayed on the following year before returning as a Shaker for a third time as player-coach.
