Jason Fred Brown (born 10 October 1974 in Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire, England) is a cricketer who has previously played for Northamptonshire, Nottinghamshire, England A and Staffordshire.


Jason Brown made his first-class debut for Northamptonshire against Yorkshire at the County Cricket Ground, Northampton in September 1996. Up to the end of the 2008 season, he has played 126 first-class matches for Northamptonshire as well as 3 matches for the England A team during their tour of the West Indies in January 2001. He also played on the senior England team's tour of Sri Lanka in 2000-01.

In these 129 matches, Brown has taken 414 wickets, with 22 instances of taking 5 wickets in an innings. His career best bowling was 7-69 against Durham at the Riverside Ground in 2003. He was released by Northamptonshire at the end of the 2008 season, and subsequently joined Nottinghamshire on a two-year contract.

However, injuries limited his playing time at Nottinghamshire and he was released after just one year, ironically after Nottinghamshire signed Graeme White, another spinner from Northamptonshire.
