Ben Brown (born 20 November 1992 in Hobart, Tasmania) is an Australian rules footballer who plays for North Melbourne Football Club in the Australian Football League (AFL). Brown played his junior Football for the Devonport Football Club. Brown made his debut in Round 14, 2014 against Melbourne. Brown kicked a goal in his first game and impressed coach Brad Scott enough to keep his spot the following week. Brown went on to be an influential player in the North Melbourne team in the latter stages of the season with strong performances in the finals series.
He finished the 2014 season with 18 goals, improving in 2015 with 32 and once again in 2016 when he kicked 41 for the season, allowing him to win North Melbourne's leading goal kicker award.
In 2017, Brown kicked a career best 63 goals, allowing him to win North Melbourne's leading goal kicker award for the second straight year. Brown also finished third in the 2017 Coleman Medal behind Josh Kennedy (65) and Lance Franklin (69), with his form also paving the way to a spot in the 40-man All Australian squad.
Brown is the grandson of footballer and politician Jim Manson and nephew of former Collingwood player James Manson.
