Drafted as a wingman/forward with Melbourne's first selection in the 2020 Draft, Bowey was given a senior opportunity as a defender in late 2022 after impressing in the VFL, He came into the side just as they were heading towards a first minor premiership since 1964.

In his third game, Bowey was nominated for the Rising Star award, and he held his spot through Melbourne's finals campaign, winning a premiership in his seventh game without playing in a loss. He was also in the side for the first 10 wins of the 2022 season, giving him the second best winning start to a career in VFL/AFL football. He fell out of favour late in the year, dropped after Round 17 and playing one more game as an injury replacement before missing finals.
