Jonathan Brown (born 24 April 1990 in South Africa) is a professional football player who currently plays for Bonnyrigg Rose. He has previously played for Heart of Midlothian, Livingston, Stirling Albion and Brechin City.


Having come through the youth team ranks at Heart of Midlothian, Brown joined Livingston on a season-long loan in August 2009[1] and whilst at the club scored his first Scottish League goal in January 2010 against Elgin City.[2] He ended the season with a Third Division Championship medal.

The following season, he joined Stirling Albion, again for a season-long loan, but this time at First Division level.[3] The season finished disappointingly with relegation as the club finished bottom of the table.

On 8 July 2011 Brown left Hearts and joined Livingston on a one-year deal after releasing himself from his contract.[4]

In July 2012 Brown joined Brechin City.[5] He was released by Brechin on 6 May 2014.[6]

In June 2014, Brown signed for Junior club Bonnyrigg Rose.[7]

International career[edit]

Brown has represented Scotland at under-16, under-17 and under-19 levels. He was last capped at under-19 international level, playing in the 2009 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship elite qualification.[8] He is also eligible to represent South Africa at international level.[9]
