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.

Career[edit]

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]
