Who is Linton Brown?

Linton Brown is an English former footballer who scored 27 goals from 155 games in the Football League playing as a forward for Halifax Town, Hull City, Swansea City and Scarborough.

Brown played non-League football for Bridlington Trinity, North Ferriby United, and Guiseley, before making three appearances in the Football League for Halifax Town in 1992 on a non-contract basis.

During the 1992–93 season he joined Hull City where he made his name in football, often a fans favourite. In his first season he made 21 appearances scoring 3 goals. In the 1993–94 season for Hull City, Brown played 43 games for the club establishing himself as a first team favourite scoring 10 goals. Then backed up the following season with 12 goals for the club. However in the 1995–96 season Brown scored only one goal and appeared in 26 games, and he was sold by Terry Dolan to Swansea City.

Injury disrupted his Swansea career; he scored three goals in 28 League games, finishing his Football League career on loan at Scarborough, before moving back into non-League football in 1998 with Emley and then Gainsborough Trinity.
