Talented midfielder signed by Tommy Wright who flourished after leaving the Showgrounds with Coleraine and Linfield.

Stephen Lowry burst onto the scene during the 2005/2006 season with his native Limavady United.

His form caught the eye of Ballymena United manager Tommy Wright, who returned to his former club to swoop and sign the 20-year-old as part of a swap deal that seen Austin Friel head the opposite direction.

...

After months of speculation he joined Linfield as one of new manager Warren Feeney's first signings in May 2014 for an undisclosed fee, just days after his younger brother Philip left the South Belfast club to join Derry City. Stephen made his Linfield debut in the obsecure surroundings of the Faroe Islands against B36 Torshavn in the qualifying rounds of the Europa League in July 2014. It proved to be a successful first season for the midfielder as despite the Blues finishing a distant runner-up to Crusaders in the 2014/2015 campaign, Lowry was voted as the Player's Player of the Year by his peers.

He signed a two year extension to his contract at Windsor Park in December 2015 but that first piece of silverware proved elusive as Linfield (now managed by David Healy) lost in the final of the Irish Cup to Glenavon in May 2016, a first Irish Cup final appearance for the Limavady man ended in disappointment. Lowry missed the County Antrim Shield final defeat to Ballymena United in that same season. The Blues were also second best in the Danske Bank Premiership - finishing runners-up to Crusaders once again in the 2015/2016 season.
