Jackson, Bow

Bow returned to the club she started with, Plymouth Argyle at the start of 2020/21 season, after a stellar career with Yeovil Town and Calgary Foothills and has been a huge asset. "Her experience at the higher level has been invaluable as she has slotted in well at right back, but can perform anywhere across the back four."

In June 21
We can confirm Bow Jackson has committed her future to the club for another year. A natural leader, Jackson brings a wealth of experience to the First Team squad. The Devon based defender has previously featured for the club across Women’s Super League 1 & 2 and returned last season following a spell in Canada with Calgary Foothills.

“Bow epitomises the qualities and values we want and expect of players at our club.” said Manager Jamie Sherwood. “I’m delighted she will be part of our exciting next chapter.”


ARGYLE Ladies are delighted to announce the signing of former Yeovil Town defender Bow Jackson after her contract with Calgary Foothills expired.

It is a tremendous acquisition for the Pilgrims and follows on from a weekend of good news, as the Greens, ironically, defeated Bow’s former club Yeovil in the FA Women’s National League Southern Division and the announcement that Home Park will host the league fixture with Watford Ladies in December.

"Bow will bring a wealth of experience to the club having played in the Women's Super League,” said Argyle Ladies manager Dave Leonard. “We are delighted to finally sign her."

The move represents a return to Home Park in a different sense for Bow, who previously worked as a coach for Argyle Community Trust.

"I can't wait to get back on the field in England and to be coming back to Devon again is a real honour,” said Bow.

“Argyle has always been a team close to me and I cannot wait to get back involved with the club. The girls and the staff have started the season so well, I'm excited to get involved and continue to push the team to its potential."

Bow moved to Exeter City in the Summer of 2022. "
Her arrival is an addition that will add a significant quality to the Grecians squad for the new season. Bow Jackson has played at the highest level in English football, wearing the colours of Yeovil Town during their spell in the Women’s Super League. After her spell in Somerset, the 27-year-old headed to Canada to play for Calgary Foothills. Playing in the United Womens Soccer League, the attacking defender competed against recognisable North American teams such as LA Galaxy and Santa Clarita. Returning to Devon in 2019, Jackson signed for Plymouth Argyle before playing last season at Bridgewater United, a season that saw the Robins compete against Manchester United in the FA Cup in front of a sellout 2,500 support. It is a game that will no doubt offer fond memories for Jackson, with Lionesses Mary Earps, Alessia Russo and Ella Toone all playing that day."

Bow made her debut for Exeter CIty WFC on the 21st August 2022 against Keynsham Town 

In 2023/24 the club described Bow "as a pacy strong player who brings leadership qualities to the team. Her move to the back line in the past season has added to City's defensive attributes."

In 2024, The 29-year-old's relaxed approach to football developed since she became a firefighter two years ago.  Jackson uses playing in the FA Women’s National League as her release from a demanding job saving lives.   

“Prior to the fire service, football was kind of everything,” she admitted. “You put your effort in, and you go, this is important, this has got to be done, blah, blah.   “Post-firefighting and seeing a different light, when we go out with blue lights on, my vision of it has changed.

“I love football to bits, it is my stress relief, I go out and enjoy myself and for that 90 minutes, I'm competitive in a really hungry way.    

Bow also commentates on the Men's game working for BBC Devon.
