Steven Browne (born 1 February 1989) is an Australian rules footballer who played for the Carlton Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL) from 2008–2010. He currently plays for West Perth in the West Australian Football League (WAFL).

Browne played his junior football with the Whitford Junior Football Club in Western Australia. He played six games of senior football with West Perth as an eighteen-year-old in late 2007, and represented Western Australia in the NAB Under-18s Championship. He was selected by the Carlton Football Club in the 2007 AFL National Draft with a third round draft selection (#36 overall). He plays primarily as a rebounding half-backman who can rotate into the midfield.[1]

Browne made his AFL debut in the sixth round of the 2008 season against Adelaide at the MCG,[2] and played thirteen games for the season. He played seven games with Carlton in the 2009 season, spending much of the rest of the time with Carlton's VFL-affiliate, the Northern Bullants, where he played in the club's losing grand final. He managed just three games in 2010, and was delisted at the end of the season.

He returned to Western Australia, and to his old club West Perth, in 2011.[3] He won a premiership with the club in 2013,[4] and remains there as of 2014.
