Player Bio

At a Glance

Junior Clubs: Tea Tree Gully/Norwood
Debut: v GWS, round 16 2012
Recruited from: Norwood
Brownlow Votes: -

One of Adelaide’s 2013 success stories, Brown played 21 games in his second AFL season. The composed defender stepped up in the absence of retired veteran Michael Doughty, routinely standing, and beating, the opposition’s most dangerous small forwards. Brown was one of four Crows to earn a Rising Star nomination (Round 23) and also received recognition from Adelaide’s coaching staff, taking out the Mark Bickley Award. Signed a two-year contract extension, tying him to the Club until at least the end of 2015.

Season by Season

Season by Season

Recruited as part of the deal that saw Brad Crouch become a Crow, Brown played three games in his debut season and was a member of Norwood’s Grand Final team. The tough and skilful utility has been used only as a lockdown defender at Adelaide, but has the potential to develop into a ball winner further up the ground.

Season by Season

A quick and versatile utility, Brown represented South Australia at the 2011 Under-18 Championships and also played league SANFL football with Norwood. The Crows secured the promising local as part of a deal with Greater Western Sydney, which also saw fancied North Ballarat midfielder Brad Crouch join the Club. Brown, 19, has fantastic skills on either side of his body and has won plenty of admirers at West Lakes with his competitive nature.
