Mark Gower (born 5 October 1978) is an English footballer who plays for Swansea City. He joined Swansea from Southend United in the summer of 2008. He also played for the England schoolboys team.


Born in Edmonton, London, Gower began his career at Tottenham Hotspur where he was a member of the League Cup winning squad in the 1998-99 season. He had a spell on loan at Motherwell before joining Barnet in January 2001 for £32,500. He joined Swansea City after declining a new contract at Southend United. He has the ability to play across the midfield, and he signed for Swansea City on a free transfer.[1]

A midfielder, he is predominantly right-footed but can play on either flank. Gower played for England schoolboys through to the under 18 team from the age of 14.

Gower played for Southend for five seasons, scoring 39 goals in the process. He moved to Swansea City when his contract at Southend expired. Gower failed to score in his first season with Swansea. Before the start of the 2009–10 season, Gower revealed he would be ditching his number 11 shirt, when he chose that number all the squad told him it was 'cursed' and fail to find good form. For the 2009–10 season, Gower will wear the 27 shirt.[2] Since wearing this shirt instead of the other he has scored four goals in two pre-season friendlies. He finally scored his first league goal for Swansea in the 2-0 win over Queens Park Rangers.
