The 23-year-old is the son of former Crystal Palace, Millwall, and Colchester United midfielder Bobby Bowry.

Director of football Rob Back told the club's website: “Dan comes with good experience at both league and non-league level.

"Once we talked to him it was clear he will help improve the squad and we looking forward to working with him."

On his move, Bowry addeed: “I see it as a great opportunity for myself joining the club. After meeting up with the manager and having a look around the ground I felt I wanted to sign there and then. I can only imagine the noise that will be in there when the ground is full.

"I’m a leader on the pitch and think of myself as a good one on one defender and that is something I’m looking to develop further to benefit the team."

The Linnets have also confirmed a friendly against Heacham as part of the new link-up between the two clubs on Tuesday, August 10 (6.45pm).
