"Vale" Ian Brown
12 March 2019
The Chelsea Football Netball Club is sadden to receive news of the passing of Ian Brown on 11th March 2019. Born 22/12/1940, Ian was 78 years old at the time of his passing.
While he was only with the Club for 1 season back in 1965, Ian made a huge impact that year taking out the Senior Best & Fairest and being a key member of that years Premiership Team.
Below an extract from the Book "Chelsea Grit"
BEST & FAIREST
The crowd all seemed to murmur the same words whenever Brownie broke free with the ball. “Here we go.” It was the tone that varied. The Chelsea supporters were excited with the possibilities, whilst their counterparts contemplated a bad outcome.
Once free, Ian was a serious threat to any opposition. He simply could not be caught and would proceed to dissect the defence of even the best teams with scintillating runs down the ground.
Brownie was in a class of his own.
