Crewe Alexandra

Brown began his career at hometown club Crewe Alexandra, for whom he made a solitary appearance as substitute in a league match with Brighton on 2 February 2008.


After leaving Crewe, Brown dropped into non-league football with spells at the newly formed F.C. Halifax Town, and then Northwich Victoria.

Fleetwood Town

After the Vics' problems off the field he signed for Fleetwood Town. He was part of the squad that saw Fleetwood promoted into the Football League for the first time in their history, and was hailed for his good form on his personal return to league football.

Brown joined League One side Tranmere Rovers on loan until the end of the 2013–14 season on 6 March 2014.

Oxford United

On 31 July 2014 Brown terminated his contract with Fleetwood and agreed to join League Two side Oxford United on a 12-month contract.

Mansfield Town

Brown joined Mansfield Town on a permanent transfer in January 2015 having been on loan at the club since November 2014.

Shrewsbury Town

Brown joined Shrewsbury Town in League One on a free transfer in June 2015, re-uniting with his former manager at Fleetwood, Micky Mellon. Establishing himself as first choice left-back at the club, he made forty appearances in all competitions during the 2015–16 season, before picking up a knee ligament injury in April 2016.

Brown signed a two-year contract extension in June 2016, keeping him at the club until summer 2018. Having found some goalscoring form during his second season, Brown's fifth goal of the campaign, the matchwinner in a 1−0 home victory over Southend United in April 2017, notably all-but sealed Shrewsbury's League One status at the expense of local rivals Port Vale.

Style of play

Brown can play anywhere on the left-hand side of the pitch either as a winger, wing-back or full-back.

As of match played 16 September 2017.
