Hebburn, County Durham born football manager Bob Brown played football for Hebburn Argyle in the first decade of the twentieth century, playing semi professional football in the Northern Alliance and North Eastern League. After his playing retirement Brown joined Sheffield Wednesday as a scout. In 1911 he joined Portsmouth as secretary, a job he held for nine years. In May 1920 he was appointed manager of Gillingham in preparation for the club’s first ever season in the Football League, but he resigned just four weeks later, before the team had even played its first League match, in order to take charge at Sheffield Wednesday, taking the reins in June 1920. He guided his club to promotion to the First Division in 1925 as Second Division Champions and then led The Owls to consecutive League Championships in 1929 and 1930. After three further third place finishes and thirteen years in charge at Hillsborough he retired from football management in September 1933.
