PLAYER BIO

Talented striker who re-joined the Pitmen on a permanent deal in December 2020 from league rivals Nuneaton Borough

Birmingham-born Brown was associated with Crewe Alexandra from the age of ten years old, signing a professional contract at Gresty Road in the summer of 2014 as a teenager. He was loaned out to Evo-Stik Division One South side Leek Town for a short spell towards the end of the 2014-2015 season to gain valuable first-team knowledge, but only played in one game before returning to Crewe

The following season saw Brown consistently loaned out throughout the season to several non-league sides. He spent two months on loan at Vanarama National League North side Worcester City in October 2015, scoring once in four games before joining Rushall Olympic in December. His spell at Dales Lane got off to a dramatic start, as he grabbed five goals on his Pics debut in an incredible 11-0 win over Stafford Town in the Walsall Senior Cup

His loan at Rushall was extended until the end of the season in January 2016, with Brown getting himself into double figures by May 2016 when he returned to Crewe. He was released at the end of his contract and joined Kidderminster Harriers on a two-year deal in June 2016. His first season saw him score thirteen goals and follow this up with another double-digit haul the following season for the Aggborough club

With several clubs interested in Brown and Harriers keen to keep the player for 2018-2019, the striker opted to move to league rivals Telford in June 2018 to sign a two-year deal. He was a consistent player under the guidance of Gavin Cowan and Phil Trainer as the Bucks narrowly missed out on the National League North play-offs in April 2019

After a stop-start 2018-2019 campaign so far, Brown was allowed to join the Pitmen on a three-month loan in October 2019. His form at Keys Park was highly impressive with six goals in six games before Telford pulled the plug on his loan in November 2019 and loaned him to league rivals Stourbridge on a long-term loan period after the Glassboys had offered a higher percentage of his wage

However, Brown's loan move at the Amblecote was to prove a misstep as he suffered an injury that saw his loan ended early and returned to Telford where he failed to make another appearance before the season was ended early due to the coronavirus pandemic in March 2020

After being released by Telford in the summer of 2020, Brown was in high demand at both step two and step three with several offers from clubs looking to bring in some firepower. Nuneaton were the club that secured his signature, forming a fearsome-looking partnership with the prolific Luke Benbow

However, Boro struggled for goals in the early stages of the season and Brown left amongst the substitutes, he was free to re-join the Pitmen in December 2020 during the league shutdown on a permanent deal. He played in several behind closed doors games for the club before the season was voided early in 2021 due to the pandemic

In June 2021, Brown was one of fourteen players from last season's squad to agree terms with the club ahead of the forthcoming 2021-2022 season
