341 Harry Brown

Biography

Standing at 6 foot 2 inches, full back Henry Stanford “Harry” Brown cut an imposing figure in City’s post-WW2 defence. He joined the Tigers in May 1946 from Wolves but spent only one season at the newly opened Boothferry Peak before retiring due to injuries in 1947.

Born in Workington, Brown joined his local club as an amateur in 1935. In February 1937 he transferred to Wolves and joined the professional ranks, making his debut in April 1939. But like so many players of his era, Harry was denied the best years of his senior career by World War Two. Although still registered with Wolves during the hostilities, Brown made wartime guest appearances for Crystal Palace and Watford and played for the British Army in a representative match.

Brown died in April 1963.
