Matthew Brown (born 15 March 1990) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Halifax Town.
Brown began his career in the youth teams at Tranmere Rovers and Manchester City before playing semi-professional football with Northwich Victoria and Marine. While he played for Marine he also worked a full-time job at telecoms company MJ Quinn as the coordinator of the Scotland patch. He went on trial at League side Chesterfield in the summer of 2013 which was a success and he joined the Spireites on a one-year contract. In October 2013 he joined Conference Premier side Southport on loan where he played five times scoring once against Cambridge United. He made his Football League debut on 14 December 2013 against Plymouth Argyle and scored in a 2–0 victory, however he was later sent-off. Chesterfield successfully appealed his dismissal and his ban was rescinded.
On 7 February 2014, Brown linked up with Chester on an initial one-month loan deal, but remained there until the end of the season.
On 13 May 2014, Chesterfield announced that Brown had been released.
