Simon John Emmerson Brown (born 29 June 1969, Cleadon, County Durham) is a former English cricketer who played in one Test in 1996. He was a right-handed batsman and a left-arm fast-medium bowler.

Simon "Smudge" Brown was one of the myriad of left-arm bowlers tried by England during the 1990s. Others included Mark Ilott, Alan Mullally, Mike Smith and Paul Taylor. Like Smith, he was a One-Test Wonder, playing in only a single Test match, which England lost against Pakistan in 1996. Despite taking two wickets, getting Aamir Sohail out with his tenth ball, he never played for England again.

He remained however a highly regarded bowler on the county circuit.
