David Brown (born 29 May 1989) is an English professional footballer. He most recently played for Bradford Park Avenue. He is a striker and scored on his Football League debut for Bradford City, before he was released after just five games.


David Brown was born in York, England,[1] and spent ten years in Leeds United's youth set up before he moved to Nottingham Forest at the start of the 2007–08 season.[2] In November 2007, he joined Eastwood Town on an initial one-month loan, which was later extended for a second month.[3] He returned to Forest in January 2008, after scoring five goals in ten games with Eastwood.[4] He was released by Forest and joined Bradford City on trial. After scoring twice in a 4–4 reserve game with Sunderland and another against Hull City,[2] he was handed a contract until the end of the season.[5] He made his debut two days later on 2 February 2008 as a second half substitute and scored six minutes after he came on to give Bradford a 1–0 victory over Macclesfield Town.[6] On 29 April 2008, Brown was deemed to be surplus to requirements at Valley Parade and was released by manager Stuart McCall along with 13 other Bradford players.[7] He played five games for City, all as substitute.[8]

Following his release, Brown joined Conference National club York City on trial in July 2008,[9] scoring twice in a pre-season friendly game against Tadcaster Albion, which York won 6–0.[1] However, York manager Colin Walker said Brown and two other trialists were only making up the numbers and were unlikely to be signed permanently.[10] Later the same month, he was given a trial at Northern Premier League Premier Division side Guiseley, coming on as a second half substitute in a 2–1 pre-season friendly victory over former side Bradford City.[11] After scoring in another pre-season trial, he joined Guiseley on a permanent basis.[12]

In January 2009, he joined Northern Premier League Division One North side Halifax Town along with fellow Bradford City player Paul Evans.[13] Brown's debut was as a substitute one day after signing for Halifax, when he scored the final goal during a 4–1 victory against Wakefield.[14]

Brown finished the season with Halifax, but in June 2009, he returned to Conference North side Eastwood Town, where he had previously played on loan.[15]
