Signing s short-term deal until the end of the season, he helped the U's to promotion from League 2, scoring seven league goals in 17 appearances.

He moved on to join Leyton Orient, but was loaned out to Crewe in January 2017. His move to the Alexandra Stadium was made permanent at the end of the season, penning a two year deal.

Bowery played both games against Dons last season, and netted nine goals in 48 appearances. With his contract expiring, Dons have snapped the striker up on a free transfer.
