James Fowler (born 26 October 1980) is a Scottish professional football manager and former player who is currently employed as the assistant manager at St Mirren. Prior to this, he was the manager of Scottish Championship club Queen of the South between 2014 and 2016.
As a player, Fowler spent fourteen years of his career with Kilmarnock, making over 400 league appearances, and represented Scotland internationally at under-21 and B levels.
Fowler graduated from the Kilmarnock youth setup. He played in a variety of different positions for Kilmarnock, with the longest continual spell being spent at right back. On 18 March 2012, he played in the 2012 Scottish League Cup Final, which Kilmarnock won 1–0 against Celtic. Fowler was granted a testimonial by Kilmarnock, which was played against Sheffield Wednesday on 8 August 2012. Fowler holds the record for the most games played in now disbanded Scottish Premier League with 401 appearances.
On 17 January 2014, Fowler moved to Scottish Championship club Cowdenbeath on a one-month loan deal. He was released by Kilmarnock at the end of the 2013–14 season.
Fowler signed for Queen of the South as first team player-coach on 27 June 2014. He was appointed caretaker manager of the club in September 2014 after Jim McIntyre moved to Ross County and later that month was appointed manager on a permanent basis. On 30 March 2015 he agreed a contract extension until 30 May 2016. Fowler departed Queens on 18 April 2016, two days after a 2-2 draw away to Alloa Athletic and with only two league matches of the 2015-16 season remaining.
On 14 July 2016 Fowler joined Scottish League Two side Stirling Albion as a player-coach, having previously been on trial.
In October 2016 he was inducted into the Kilmarnock 'Hall of Fame' alongside other well-known former players such as Tommy McLean, Ray Montgomerie and Stuart McLean.
Fowler was capped twice in 2000 by the Scotland under-21 team. In February 2007, Fowler was rewarded for his development with a late call up to the Scotland B squad against Finland. He played the last 25 minutes in a 2–2 draw at Rugby Park, his club's home ground.Kilmarnock
