"He did extremely well for us, he's a player with a lot of ability and he's a player which personifies what we are trying to do as a club. That is to play fantastic football and give the supporters value for money.  Junior Brown will do that for us. He's a fantastic signing for the club."

Brown told the official website, "I have known Jim for a while now, he took me on loan last season and he's a great manager. I agree with his philosophies about football.  He wants to play attacking football and please the supporters. This is a club which is definately going places.

Looking at the way we started on Tuesday, I believe we can go on and win this league and maybe push on to get the club back into the Conference."
