He signed with Accrington Stanley in January 2016, and helped the club win the League Two title in the 2017–18 season.

Club career

Born in Runcorn, Cheshire,[4] Brown progressed through the Everton youth system, having joined the club at under-nines level.[5] After not making a senior appearance for the club he was released in 2004.[citation needed] He then joined Port Vale on trial in July 2004, under manager Martin Foyle,[6] but was not signed to the club on a permanent contract.[citation needed]

In August 2004, he signed for Bristol City when Brian Tinnion offered him a three-month contract[7] and later went on to sign a two-year deal with City.[citation needed] In October 2005, Brown and City teammates David Partridge and Bradley Orr were arrested on suspicion of violent disorder after an incident in a nightclub.[8] They were later charged with affray, as was teammate Steve Brooker.[9] Brown denied the offence but admitted the lesser charge of a section 4 public-order offence.[10] His three teammates were sent to prison, but Brown escaped this punishment and instead was given 120 hours' community service for his part in the drunken brawl.[11]

He was voted the Professional Footballers' Association Fans' Player of the Month for September 2006, and also received young player of the year awards for his impressive displays that year.[12] Brown joined fellow League One club Cheltenham Town in January 2007.[13] He broke his leg in a collision with teammate Damian Spencer in a match against his former team[14] and was ruled out for the rest of the 2006–07 season.[15] His full recovery from the double leg fracture and dislocated ankle took a total of 18 months despite the surgeon initially fearing that Brown would struggle to ever walk properly again.[16] Despite having left Bristol City half way through the 2006–07 season he was presented with a promotion medal by Gary Johnson for his contribution in the first half of the campaign.[12]

In November 2008, Brown went to Port Vale on loan after failing to make an appearance under manager Martin Allen.[17][18] He scored on his debut on 22 November, in a 4–2 defeat to Wycombe Wanderers at Vale Park.[19] In January 2009, Vale signed Brown on a free transfer after his Cheltenham contract expired.[20] With 19 appearances for Vale in 2008–09, he was released upon the season's conclusion.[21] He rejoined Cheltenham on 25 March 2010 on non-contract terms,[22] but was released by the club along with seven other players in May,[23] having only played 16 minutes in the final match of the season.[24]

Brown playing for York City in 2012

In July 2010, he joined Grimsby Town on trial and played in the club's 3–0 win over Winterton Rangers.[25] In September 2010, he signed with Morecambe.[26] He scored three goals in 33 matches before being released at the end of the season.[27]

After leaving Morecambe Brown had a brief trial spell at Wrexham,[28] before signing for Conference Premier club Fleetwood Town on 8 August 2011, on a contract lasting until 2 January 2012.[29] He made nine appearances for the club before leaving when his contract expired.[30][31] He signed for another Conference Premier, York City, on 6 January 2012 on a contract until the end of 2011–12.[32] He entered the 2012 Conference Premier play-off Final at Wembley Stadium on 20 May as a 37th-minute substitute, with York going on to win 2–1, meaning the club returned to the Football League after an eight-year absence with promotion to League Two.[33] Brown finished the season with 10 appearances for York[34] before being released by the club.[35]

On 10 August 2012, Brown signed for Conference Premier club Macclesfield Town after a trial with the club.[36] He made his debut later that same day, replacing Sam Wedgbury minutes before the end of a 2–1 defeat by Hereford United at Edgar Street.[37] However, he left Moss Rose at the end of the month after the club cancelled his non-contract registration.[38] Brown went on to label Steve King a liar and "a joke", and called the club a "sinking ship" on Twitter.[39] He signed a short-term deal with Conference North club Chester on 5 September 2012.[40] He remained at the Deva Stadium until the end of 2012–13 as Chester won the Conference North title.[41] He also made a substitute appearance in the final of the Cheshire Senior Cup, as Chester beat Stalybridge Celtic 2–1 at Wincham Park.[42] He left the club in May 2013; manager Neil Young stated that "his attitude and professionalism was an example to others".[43]

Brown signed for Conference Premier club Southport on 13 July 2013.[41] He was named as captain after John Coleman took over as manager following the sacking of Alan Wright, and was named as the club's Player of the Month in December 2013 and February 2014.[44] He missed just two league matches all season as he helped the Southport to finish two points above the relegation zone in 2013–14.[37] Supporters voted him as the club's Player of the Year.[45]

On 4 June 2014, Brown signed for Conference Premier club Grimsby Town on a one-year contract.[46] Despite the good form of central midfielders Craig Clay and Craig Disley,[47] Brown made 38 appearances and scored one goal for Grimsby in 2014–15.[37] He played in the play-off final at Wembley Stadium, which ended in a 1–1 draw with Bristol Rovers with Grimsby losing on penalties.[48] Brown left Grimsby by mutual consent on 26 January 2016.[49] He joined Accrington Stanley the next day on a contract running until the end of 2015–16 after being signed by former Southport manager John Coleman.[50] He made 15 appearances and scored three goals over the remainder of the season, and played in both legs of the play-off semi-final defeat to AFC Wimbledon.[51] He signed a new two-year contract in June 2016.[52] He made 32 appearances in the 2016–17 campaign, and was sent off three times, in matches against Colchester United, Cheltenham Town and Yeovil Town.[53][54][55] He scored two goals in 44 appearances in the 2017–18 season as Accrington won promotion as champions of League Two and admitted to losing his phone and house keys during the promotion celebrations.[56] He was offered a new contract by Accrington at the end of the season.[57]

International career

Brown made his debut for the England under-15 team in the 1–0 defeat to Northern Ireland on 29 October 2000 in the Victory Shield.[58] He earned two more caps for the under-15s, appearing in matches against the Netherlands and Germany in February 2001.[58] His debut for the under-17 team came in a 2–1 defeat to Italy in a friendly on 12 July.[59] Brown made nine appearances for England at this level, with his last cap coming in a 4–1 victory over Spain in the 2002 UEFA European Under-17 Championship third place play-off on 10 May 2002.[59] He made his under-18 debut as a 46th-minute substitute in England's 4–0 victory over Tunisia on 14 November.[60] He made two appearances for England at the 2003 Meridian Cup, playing against Burkina Faso and Egypt during February 2003, meaning he was capped three times by England at this level.[60] Brown made his debut for the under-19s on 20 September against Liechtenstein in a 2–0 victory, before scoring his first England goal in the following match two days later, with the fourth goal of a 4–0 victory over Andorra.[61] He went on to be capped seven times at under-19 level, scoring two goals.[61]
