Keith Bowker (born 18 April 1951 in West Bromwich is an English former professional footballer. He played as a striker.

Bowker began his career as an apprentice at Birmingham City, turning professional in August 1968, though he had to wait over two years for his league debut. He found it impossible to establish himself at St. Andrews and in December 1973, after 5 goals in 21 league games moved to Exeter City.

Bowker played and scored regularly at Exeter- in 2 and a half seasons he hit 38 goals in 110 league games. He moved to Cambridge United in May 1976 but found it difficult to win a regular place in the team. He moved to Northampton Town on loan in December 1976, playing 4 times in the league without scoring. On his return to Cambridge he continued to struggle, as the side stormed to promotion from the Fourth Division. He left the Abbey Stadium in August 1977, after scoring just 1 goal in 17 league games, to return to Exeter City. Once more he found a regular place in the Grecian's side, playing 102 times in the league over the next 3 seasons, scoring 28 goals. In August 1980 he signed for Torquay United, where he was to play 53 league games (scoring 9 goals) before joining North Devon side Bideford. In 1986 he was appointed manager of Taunton Town, taking them to the Western League title in 1989-90. He left Taunton in 1993, and later worked as a postman.
