Joseph William "Joe" Brown (born 3 April 1988 in Bradford, England) is an English footballer, currently playing for Bradford Park Avenue.


Brown signed for Bradford City as an apprentice in 2004.[1] He made his debut for the Bantams in a Johnstone's Paint Trophy first-round game at Morecambe on 22 November 2005 when he came on as an 82nd-minute substitute. He scored a last-minute winner. In the second round he was again a scoring substitute but Bradford lost 2–1. His league debut came in December in a goalless draw at Scunthorpe United. He scored his one and only league goal for Bradford - again in the 90th minute - after coming on as substitute against Blackpool in March.

The following season, he again scored a Johnstone's Paint Trophy goal. Brown was given a three-match suspension after losing his appeal against a red-card in Bradford's 4–1 loss against Blackpool and was released by City at the end of the 2006–07 season after making just seven appearances.[2][3]

He went on trial with York City at the end of the 2006–07 season but was deemed "no better than what we have got" by manager Billy McEwan.[4][5] He later had a trial with Halifax Town and trained with several league clubs, but eventually joined Bradford Park Avenue in August 2007.[6]
