Dougie Brown

Enthusiastic, committed and never one to accept defeat, Dougie Brown took over 500 wickets and scored 8,000 runs for Warwickshire in first-class cricket after moving south from Stirling, he made his County Championship debut in 1992.

On the edge of the triple winning side of 1994 Dougie played a significant part in the Warwickshire double winning side the following year and his performances were rewarded with a call-up to the England One-Day side in 1997/8. As an all-rounder, he made 10 centuries for the Bears and had 17 five wicket hauls, a career best 203 against Sussex in 2000 and 1,000 first-class runs in 2003.

More success came as part of the 2002 Benson and Hedges Cup winning side and he collected another County Championship winner’s medal in 2004 as a key member of Nick Knight’s unbeaten side. Brown coached Namibia at the 2003 World Cup and played for Scotland in the 2007 World Cup.

Ever popular with the Bears’ supporters he was recently appointed as Academy Director on the Warwickshire coaching staff.
