:For the American painter see Henry Siddons MowbrayHenry "Harry" Mowbray (born 1 May 1947 in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire) is a Scottish former professional footballer. He played as a defender.

Mowbray began his career in his native Scotland with Cowdenbeath in 1966. After one season with the Blue Brazil, he moved south to join Stan Mortensen's Blackpool, signing for them on his 20th birthday. He made his debut for the Tangerines on August 29, 1967, in a 1 1 draw at Ipswich Town in the league, replacing the injured Bill Bentley. He went on to make a further 26 league appearances in the 1967 68 campaign, playing alongside Jimmy Armfield.

After sitting out the majority of the 1968 69 season (with Bill Bentley taking over his left-back role), he made only twelve league starts.

The following season, 1969 70, saw him edge back in front of Bentley. He made 26 league appearances that season and also in 1970 71. He scored his first goal for the club in their FA Cup third-round win against West Ham at Bloomfield Road on January 2, 1971.

At the end of the season, after Blackpool had been relegated to Division Two, new manager Bob Stokoe made it clear that he was going to favour Bentley at left-back, and so Mowbray departed the seaside.

Jimmy Armfield, now manager at Bolton Wanderers, re-signed the Scot, and he made 31 league appearances for the Trotters in two years.

In 1973, Mowbray returned to Scotland to sign for St. Mirren for the 1973 74 season. He then played in Australia for a few years, bringing his playing career to a close.
