  • Player profile

    Brown was a goal machine and was Fosse's top-scorer for three years on the spin. In total he notched 38 goals from 72 league appearances and three goals in five FA Cup outings - quite a record.

    He was a bustling centre-forward who started his career with Glenbuck Cherrypickers and had two spells with Fosse - making his goalscoring record even more impressive. He scored in his Fosse debut, in 1899 against Arsenal away and also found the back of the net in that same game.

    Brown was a player who was often overshadowed by his brother, Scottish international Sandy, and his first spell at Fosse came to an end in controversial circumstances after he was suspended for breaches of training discipline.

    After going to play for Chesterfield and Lanark FC, Brown returned to Leicester for a second time in 1902 before finishing his career with Portsmouth and Dundee.
