Career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Brown came through the youth system of Brentford, moving up from the under–18s squad to the first-team for the 2006–07 season. On 22 August 2006, Brown had his first involvement with the first-team squad at as an unused substitute, at the age of just 16, in the 4–3 penalty shoot-out victory over Swindon Town, after the game had ended 2–2 in normal time, in the First Round of the 2006–07 League Cup.[3] At the end of the 2007–08 season he signed his first professional contract with the League Two side. Brown was loaned to Southern League Division One South and West side Windsor & Eton to gain first team experience, making 25 appearances for the club. Brown made his competitive debut for Brentford on 2 September 2008 in the First Round of the 2008–09 Football League Trophy against Yeovil Town, which ended 2–2 and went to a penalty shoot-out.[4] Despite being only 18 at the time, Brown saved a crucial penalty by Andre McCollin to allow "The Bees" to triumph 4–2.[5] Despite this, however, Brown was released by manager Andy Scott on 6 May 2009 along with eight other players having failed to break into the first team.[6]

AFC Wimbledon[edit]

Brown joined AFC Wimbledon in 2009. On 21 May 2011, he saved two penalties for the club in the 2010–11 Conference play-off final penalty shoot-out as they beat Luton Town to gain promotion to the Football League.[7] He was named as the goalkeeper for the 2010–11 Conference Team of the Year.[8] On 19 February 2013, it was announced that Brown had joined Conference side Woking on an initial one-month loan deal.[9] Following his release, Brown signed for ambitious Conference South side Bromley. Following the club's signing of Alan Julian in January 2015, however, Brown joined Whitehawk on a month's loan. After making just one appearance for the Hawks, Brown returned to Bromley, and joined Hampton & Richmond Borough on loan.
