Allan Brown was another Scotsman. He was born in 1926.

He played for East Fife, Blackpool, (missing both the 1951 & 1953 Cup finals through injury) Luton Town, for whom he played in the 1959 FA Cup final against Forest, and finishing his career at Portsmouth.

He was appointed player/manager of then non-league Wigan Athletic, before moving on to Luton Town in 1966.

In 1969 he moved to Torquay United, and then Bury in June 1972. He left Bury on the edge of the Third Division promotion race to join Forest in November 1973.

In his first season Forest finished seventh and had a memorable FA Cup run which was eventually curtailed by a load of hooligans at Newcastle.

The following season things didn't go so well, results on the pitch were poor, crowd favourite Duncan McKenzie was sold to Brian Clough's Leeds United, and the final straw came on December 28th, with a completly inept performance Forest lost at home to local rivals Notts County 0-2 - Brown was sacked.

He went on to have two spells as manager of Blackpool and also managed Kuwaiti club Quadsia.
