Eddie Gray picked this centre-back from non-league obscurity and
although he played a few games for Leeds, he never quite made it as
a regular. He played 5 games with Doncaster Rovers on loan before making
the move permanenent and going on to become Rovers' captain in a
two year spell at Belle Vue.
Cheers to Rochdale's programme editor Mark Wilbraham for the photo.
Martin says: Worked with Tony Brown at Royal London Insurance circa
1992. He became a financial adviser but left to pursue other areas
soon after. He was a nice guy and I believe Dennis Irwin of MAN U is
one of his close pals, oh well I suppose Dennis is about the best of a
bad lot. Where r u now TONY! do you remember me.. Martin Josephson, Norman
Potter (rip) and David Silver email me please.

Steven Dresser says: Tone had everything- awareness, great tackler,
great header, not the fastest but could read the game perfectly. He's
currently managing Eccleshill United in Bradford, he's doing v.well!

Marinus Van Kerckhoven says: Tony is one of the greatest players in
Rochdale history. Leeds, Doncaster and scunthorpe all made the mistake

of the most famous Rochdale side in history when they got 2 the
quarters of the F.A Cup and lost to palace + Do You Vont Cheese?
stuart todd says: I now work with Tony at a company in Shipley,
he's recently shaved his moustache off so dosn't get recognised as

that Tony Brown should now take over as Manager of the mighty Leeds,
providing that Leeds can afford to pay the mighty Eccleshill United
enuf compensation. (Which is doubtfull)
