Experienced midfielder snapped up by John Coleman following his release by National League side Grimsby Town in the January 2016 transfer window.
He’d worked with the Stanley boss before during a spell at Southport that saw him wear the captain’s armband.
Injuries presented Brown with his first team chance as the season drew to a close and he grasped it, going on to become a pivotal part of the side as the Reds made the League Two play-offs.
