Player Profile: Jason Brown

Full Name: Jason Brown
Date of Birth: 18th May 1982, London
Nationality: Welsh
Position: Goalkeeper
Squad Number: 23
Internationals: Capped at Full level for Wales
Signed: June 2006
Previous Clubs: Charlton Athletic & Gillingham

Jason Brown began his career with Charlton Athletic coming through the clubs youth system. After failing to make the break through at the Valley he sought first team football elsewhere in the shape of Gillingham in 2002.

Initially back-up for former Arsenal goalkeeper Vince Bartram he claimed the number one jersey and held it for the remainder of the 2001-2002 season. The 2002-2003 season saw him firmly established as Gillingham's number one also seeing him gain International recognition with Wales at under-21 level.

The following two seasons saw action limited for Brown as injury and poor form restricted his progress. However having been relegated with Gillingham the previous season Brown started the 2005-2006 season again as the top man. His form that season earned him his first full International call-up for Wales as he was voted the Gillingham fan's Player of the Year.

Brown won his first Welsh cap against Trinidad & Tobago on May 27th 2006; he would sign for Blackburn Rovers a month later at the end of June.

The Welshman is small in goalkeeping terms but his shot-stopping ability is superb. Brown looks likely to be the clubs number two but will almost certainly be the long term replacement for Brad Friedel.

At the start of both halves of each match he plays Brown performs a ritual of resting his head against each of his posts in turn, with his eyes closed and his hands in front of him as if in prayer. (You may have noticed this when watching him play?)

He came on to make his dream Rovers debut as a substitute replacing the injured Brad Friedel in October during the 2006-2007 season. He kept a clean sheet in the second half of the Premiership clash with Wigan Athletic, saving a Svetoslav Todorov's Penalty, his follow up and the effort after that!
