Grant joined FCV in the summer of 2016 as Academy Manager.
A central defender in his playing days, Brown’s career spanned 18 years and just short of 600 games. After starting out at Leicester City, where he played 14 times, he moved to Lincoln City, going on to make more than 400 appearances during a 13-year spell.
After stints at Telford United and Alfreton Town, Sunderland-born Brown joined Grantham Town – which he balanced alongside a Youth Team coaching role at Lincoln.
Brown hung up his boots in 2006 to further his focus on his coaching career and, since then, has stepped up into a caretaker manager role at Sincil Bank on a handful of occasions. As the Imps’ Head of Youth since 2010, there’s no doubt that Brown has the expertise to get the very best out of FCV’s future stars this season and beyond.
