William Dallas Fyfe Brown (8 October 1931 – 1 December 2004) was the goalkeeper with Tottenham Hotspur when they won the "double" of League championship and FA Cup in 1961 - the first club in the 20th century to do so.

Brown started his career with Arbroath F.C. then Dundee as a teenager before joining Spurs in 1959. He was there for seven years, also winning the FA Cup again in 1962 and the European Cup Winners' Cup in 1963. He was capped 28 times for Scotland and played in the 1958 World Cup. He also played for his country at 'B' team, youth and schoolboy level.

After a spell at Northampton Town, Brown moved to Canada to end his playing days with the Toronto Falcons.[1] After he finished playing, he stayed in Canada and worked as a property developer and for the government.

He died in December 2004 aged 73. The news broke just before the 2004 Tottenham team kicked off a League Cup tie against Liverpool and, as a tribute, they wore black armbands for the occasion.
