John Lowe (born 1900; date of death unknown) was an English footballer who played on the right-wing for Ripley Town, Sheffield Wednesday, Chesterfield, Bolton Wanderers, Port Vale, Oldham Athletic, and Rotherham United.

Playing career[edit]

Lowe played for Ripley Town, Sheffield Wednesday, Chesterfield and Bolton Wanderers, before joining Port Vale in May 1923.[1] He scored twice in 32 appearances in the 1923–24 campaign.[1] He became an ever-present during the 1924–25 (45 games) and 1925–26 (43 games) seasons, making 128 consecutive appearances between April 1924 and March 1927, as Vale posted two consecutive eighth-place finishes in the Second Division.[1] His run came to the end as he sprained an ankle, though he did score eight goals in 45 games as the "Valiants" finished eighth for a third consecutive time in 1926–27.[1] He lost his first team place in September 1927 and featured just nine times in the 1927–28 season, before he was handed a free transfer in May 1928.[1] He went on to play for Oldham Athletic and Rotherham United – he made just the one appearance for the "Millers", in a 2–1 Third Division North win over Rochdale at Spotland on 21 September 1929[2] – before returning to his hometown club Ripley, where he ultimately became a committee member.
