After the Vics' problems off the field he signed for Fleetwood Town. He was part of the squad that saw Fleetwood promoted into the Football League for the first time in their history, and was hailed for his good form on his personal return to league football.
Brown joined Shrewsbury Town in League One on a free transfer in June 2015, re-uniting with his former manager at Fleetwood, Micky Mellon. Establishing himself as first choice left-back at the club, he made forty appearances in all competitions during the 2015–16 season, before picking up a knee ligament injury in April 2016. This injury caused him to miss most of the season.
Brown signed a two-year contract extension in June 2016, keeping him at the club until summer 2018. Having found some goalscoring form during his second season, Brown's fifth goal of the campaign, the matchwinner in a 1−0 home victory over Southend United in April 2017, notably all-but sealed Shrewsbury's League One status at the expense of local rivals Port Vale.
