Pen Pic: Brown is in his second season with the Shaymen after signing for the club on a free transfer from Chester in 2015. After a slow start for the team the central defender became a rock at the back in the second half of last season. His absence due to injury from the last few games was cited by many fans as a key factor in relegation. Brown bounced back from his injury to take his place in the victorious FA Trophy final Town side.
The former Chester FC captain was on the youth books at Manchester City and has also played for Chesterfield, where he scored on his Football League debut in a 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle. Brown seems to have an eye for goal as he also scored the shoot-out winning penalty against Gateshead in the quarter final of the memorable trophy run of last season.
