Reece Brown (born 1 November 1991) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Watford. He began his career with Manchester United in 2000, and has played on loan at Bradford City, Doncaster Rovers, Oldham Athletic, Coventry City, Ipswich Town and Carlisle United. His elder brother, Wes, also played for Manchester United from 1998 to 2011.

Career[edit]

Brown joined Manchester United at the age of nine, having previously played for Fletcher Moss Rangers.[3] After making his way through United's youth teams he was awarded his first professional contract by the club in the summer of 2009.

On 29 September 2010, he joined Bradford City on a month's loan along with fellow Manchester United defender Oliver Gill.[4] Brown, like Gill, made his debut on 2 October 2010 in a 0–1 defeat to Morecambe.[5] On 25 October 2010, the pair returned to Manchester United after the expiration of their month's loan despite Bradford's willingness to extend their stay.[6]

On 16 August 2011, he joined Doncaster Rovers on a month's loan.[7] He made his debut on the same day, coming on as an 85th-minute substitute for Kyle Bennett in Doncaster's 1–0 home defeat by Nottingham Forest.[8]

Brown returned from his loan spell at Doncaster on 10 September 2011 and after a couple of impressive displays in the reserves, he was included in the first-team squad for the League Cup third round tie against Leeds United, however he was an unused substitute on the night.[9]

On 2 March 2012, Manchester United agreed for Brown to spend a one month loan spell at Oldham Athletic.[10] On 3 April 2012, Brown extended his loan deal with the club until the end of the season.[11] On 20 July 2012, he went out on loan again, this time to Coventry City for the duration of the 2012–13 season.[12][13] He made his debut on 11 August in the League Cup in a 1–0 win away to Dagenham & Redbridge.[14] He made his league debut in a 1–1 draw away to Yeovil Town on 18 August.[15] On 21 August 2012, he made his home debut in a 1–1 draw to Sheffield United.[16] Although the loan was intended to last the entire season, Manchester United recalled Brown in January 2013 after he fell down the pecking order at Coventry;[17] his last appearance came in the league against Oldham Athletic in September 2012.[18]

On 25 February 2013, Manchester United agreed for Brown to spend the rest of the season on loan to Ipswich Town.[19] At the end of the 2012–13 season, he was released by Manchester United.[20]

Brown completed a move to Watford, signing a two-year deal on 22 July 2013.[21] He made his league debut as a substitute away to Reading on 17 August 2013.

On 11 March 2014, Brown joined League One side Carlisle United on a one-month loan until 12 April 2014.[22] On 15 April 2014, Brown extended his loan stay with the Cumbrians until the end of the 2013–14 season.[23]
