876 Chris Brown

Biography

Young striker Brown joined City on loan from Sunderland during the first half of 2005/06 season. He played a few games, scored a goal, made little lasting impression.

A Yorkshireman from Doncaster, Brown came through the ranks at Sunderland where he carved a fearsome goalscoring reputation. Brown debuted for the Black Cats in September 2004 after a successful season on loan at Doncaster and was a first team regular, mostly from the bench, in a Sunderland side seeking promotion back to the Premier League.

Brown was not able to establish himself in the Premier League for Sunderland and he moved to Norwich in January 2007. A year later he moved to Preston and in three and a half seasons he established himself as that mercurial “I’ll guarantee you six goals a season” type of striker. In 2011 he moved back to Doncaster on a permanent deal where he spent three more prolific seasons before a final and less successful two year stint at Blackburn.
