PLAYER BIO

Experienced forward who rejoined the Pitmen in September 2023 from AFC Wulfrunians

A former youngster at Evo-Stik Division One side Sutton Coldfield Town, Brown was a regular in the Royals' U21 side during the 2014-2015 campaign, before moving on in January 2015 in search of first-team football by joining AFC Wulfrunians

His stay at Castlecroft saw him make nine starts for Steve Palmer's side, scoring twice, before stepping back up a level in July 2015 to join Tividale. He enjoyed an impressive season for the Evo-Stik Division One side, making over thirty appearances and grabbing five goals as Tivi finished rock bottom of the table

Brown's form had attracted the attention of Redditch United manager Liam McDonald, who took the chance on the youngster and brought him to Keys Park after taking over as Hednesford manager in June 2016. His first spell at Keys Park was to prove a frustratingly short one as more experienced performers kept him out of the side and limited him to just one substitute appearance against Ashton United in September 2016 before making a return to AFC Wulfrunians

After twenty-eight appearances back at step five, Brown made the move to Coventry Sphinx in the summer of 2017, making four appearances before returning to West Midlands (Regional) League side Tividale one more in September 2017

After finishing second in 2017-2018, Tivi romped to the league title the following season, with Brown in prolific form as he plundered an astonishing forty goals to guide his side to promotion. This brought him to the attention of clubs higher up the pyramid once more, with local rivals Worcester City signing the player for the first time in May 2019. Once again, the goals flowed for the striker, with thirteen goals in twenty-eight starts for the Blue and Whites

 

This prompted Vanarama National League North side Hereford to sign Brown in February 2020, although a combination of the coronavirus pandemic and an injury limited him to only two substitute appearances for the Bulls before joining Bromsgrove Sporting in December 2020. He failed to make an appearance for the Rouslers as the season was once again brought to an abrupt halt by the ongoing pandemic

After agreeing terms with Bromsgrove for the 2021-2022 season, he was sent out on dual registration to Worcester for a short spell to build up his fitness, scoring seven times in nine games before returning to Bromsgrove in September. His return to step three was a success as he scored seven times in sixteen starts before making the switch to league rivals Rushall Olympic in January 2022, reuniting him with McDonald once more. After scoring three times in three starts at Dales Lane, Brown was allowed to rejoin Worcester on a dual registration deal in March 2022, making the move permanent once more in the summer

However, a serious knee injury sustained at Walsall Wood in August 2022 ended the player's season and saw him sit out nearly a year as he slowly returned to fitness. In the summer of 2023, Brown rejoined step five Wulfrunians once more and scored twice in six starts before receiving the call from former team-mate Danny Glover - now the Pitmen's player/manager - to make his return to Keys Park in September 2023
