Brown was born in the Longfleet St Mary parish of Poole and had represented the Dorset County F.A. In March 1910, he was invited to The Dell for a trial; considered "up to scratch", he took the place of Horace Glover at left-back (Glover had moved to centre-forward in the absence of Charlie McGibbon) for the Southern League match at Bristol Rovers on 26 March 1910. Described as "tall, weighty and muscular", Brown played well enough to earn another match, a week later, at home to Norwich City.
Despite acquitting himself well in his two first-team appearances, Brown decided to abandon his football career and resume his profession as a fisherman, although he continued to play for his local club, earning a trial with the England amateur team in January 1911.
