Also known as “Foxy” Fowler Graeme is known for his batting talent and on the pitch personality, causing expert cricket speaker and writer Colin Batemen to comment that he ‘rarely bored anyone with his batting’.
Fowler made his first-class cricket debut in 1979 and quickly became the first-choice opening batsman for both his county and national teams and made his Test match debut three years later, despite a touring ban in place against South African apartheid. Fowler went on to play in more than twenty Tests for England achieving his first double century during a nine-hour inning in his debut Test, making him the first Englishman to do so in India.

Following a decade with the team Fowler moved to Durham where he worked as both a player and a coach at the team’s academy and previously coached both Andrew Strauss and Robin Martin-Jenkins.
