Biographical Text

Aaron Brown, from Bristol City, spent a short time on loan with Exeter City in 2000 at the start of his professional career. He went on to play nearly two hundred times for the Ashton Gate club and later appeared for a number of other clubs including QPR, Swindon and Lincoln.   

Aaron joined Bristol City as a trainee and signed full professional terms in August 1998. After seventeen first-team appearances he joined Exeter City on loan in January 2000 making his debut against Leyton Orient at St James’ Park. Aaron then featured in the following four matches, netting in the 2-0 home win over Rochdale, before returning to Bristol City in February 2000.

Establishing himself in the team at Ashton Gate, Aaron’s form attracted a bid from West Bromwich Albion in 2001 which was turned down. However, after 147 league appearances and 12 goals for Bristol City, he moved to Queens Park Rangers in January 2005. At Loftus Road a series of injuries restricted Aaron’s progress and he had loan spells with Torquay United (March 2005) and Cheltenham Town (September 2005). Aaron then joined Swindon Town on loan in November 2005 ahead of agreeing a permanent deal two months later.

In June 2007 Aaron moved to Gillingham followed by a switch to Lincoln City where he remained until February 2010. He then dropped into the Conference with Wrexham staying at the same level with Darlington until the end of 2011/12 during which time he won an FA Trophy winners medal with the Quakers. Thereafter Aaron moved back to the Bristol area to play for Bath City, Hungerford Town and Weston-super-Mare prior to being appointed player-coach of Paulton Rovers in June 2015.

Outside of football Aaron has run and managed a travel business in Bristol.
