Mark James Brown (born 5 August 1984 in Motherwell) is a Scottish footballer currently playing for Alloa Athletic. He can play in defence or as a midfielder.

Career[edit]

Brown began his career with Rangers. He was released by the Ibrox outfit after a serious injury to his spine, and gave up football, after thinking he would never play again.[1]

Brown got back into the game with Lanarkshire side Eddlewood Amateurs. Brown was a key player in the side, and it was his spectacular long range strike which won Eddlewood the Scottish Amateur Cup in May 2008.[2]

Brown returned to the senior game in June 2008, when he was given a two-year contract at Clyde.[3] He made his Clyde debut in July 2008, in a 2-0 victory over Annan Athletic in the Scottish Challenge Cup.[4] A week later, he scored an equaliser in the fifth minute of injury time in a 1-1 draw with Greenock Morton, in his league debut.[5] Brown's contract was terminated in June 2009, following Clyde's relegation and financial troubles.[6] He went on to sign for Alloa Athletic.
