John Brown is a former professional footballer who played in The Football League for Plymouth Argyle and Bristol Rovers. Brown, who was born in Wadebridge in Cornwall started playing for his home town team, Wadebridge Town in 1958. Following an unsuccessful trial for Arsenal in 1960 he joined Plymouth Argyle, but only featured nine times for their first team in his three years with the club, scoring twice. On moving to Bristol Rovers in 1963 he made more of an impact, playing as an inside forward he made 156 appearances in the League and scored 32 goals. While playing in Bristol he decided to become a part-time player so that he could also work on his father's farm near Wadebridge, leading to him earning the nickname 'Farmer Brown', but he found the work and travelling difficult and in 1968 requested that his footballing contract was terminated.
