Brown joined Sheffield Wed’s from non league Worksop Town in 1923 for a fee of £300 after receiving national acclaim after an F.A Cup tie against Spurs. During his first three seasons he battled for the number one spot against Teddy Davidson, eventually Brown became Wednesday number one in 1926. During this season he kept 16 clean sheets as Wednesday gained promotion to the first division, in the 1928-29 season he helped Wednesday to win the First Division title. He was also ever present in the team ( except for one game) in the following season when they retained The First Division Championship. He also played in all the FA cup ties in 1935 before winning the final against West Bromwich Albion 4-2 at Wembley. During his time at Hillsborough he played for England 6 times and amassed 507 league and cup appearances for Wednesday. He was transferred to Hartlepool United in 1937 where he played just one game.
