Alistair Brown (born 12 December 1985 in Irvine, North Ayrshire) is a Scottish association football player, who plays as a goalkeeper for Forfar Athletic.


Playing career



Brown started his career at Hibernian, where he was frequently selected as the substitute goalkeeper, but rarely played. In fact, he only played in part of one Scottish Premier League match, coming on as a substitute for Simon Brown in a 2–1 win against Dunfermline on 18 December 2004.[4] He didn't play in another first team match for Hibs, despite being contracted with the club until 2008.

He spent most of the rest of his time with the club out on loan at various Scottish Football League clubs, including Ayr United[5] and Raith Rovers.[6] Brown initially joined Stenhousemuir on loan in October 2007.[7] He then returned to Stenhousemuir on loan in February 2008, having returned to Hibs the previous month.[8]

Forfar Athletic

Brown signed for Forfar Athletic in the summer of 2008 on a free transfer.[1] During his first season at Forfar, Brown played in a Scottish Cup tie against Rangers, where he came up against childhood contemporary Kris Boyd.[9]

International career

Brown was selected by the Scotland national under-21 football team.[9]
