Brown, who previously played under the Worksop Town boss at Pontefract Collieries for three seasons, joins the Tigers after a short break away from football. He can also operate at right-back and has previously played over in Sweden for Sandvikens before moving to Scarborough Athletic on his return to England.

The midfielder came off the bench against Guiseley AFC on Tuesday night and Brown has stated his excitement to get back to playing once again.

“It’s good to be joining and it is a good club to be at,” said Brown. “I know a lot of people who are here already.

“I have had a bit of a break away from football, so it is nice to be back in and around the lads.

"I am excited to see how it goes; I hope to get some game time and do well.

“It has been really hard; we know footballers have had a big break anyway due to lockdown and I have kind of needed that to get back into the right mindset to get a bit of weight off and get fit.

“As I have said, I have had a bit of a break away from football, so Tuesday was my first real test, playing around 20-30 minutes of football.

"It was a bit of a blow, but it was good to be back out on the field.

“I know how he [Craig Parry] works and I know how he wants us to be fast, how he wants us to be intense, to be strong and quick and I can do that.

"When I am fit, I will have a lot more game time to get my match fitness up and then I will be ready to rock and roll.

“I like to get stuck in, but I like to play and the surface here [at Sandy Lane] is good for that and it is good for a footballing team like Worksop are – I’m looking forward to seeing how it all goes.”

Brown could make his debut in Saturday’s trip to Anstey Nomads in the Preliminary Round of the FA Cup.

On Tuesday 15 September, Worksop Town will welcome Ecclesfield Red Rose to Sandy Lane after adding a new friendly fixture.
