Brisbane great joins the clubs elite
South Warrnambool export and 3 time premiership player Jonathan Brown was inducted into the Brisbane Lions Hall of Fame Saturday night.
In fifteen seasons with the Lions, Brown along with 3 flags, played in four consecutive grand finals, captained the club for 4 years, and was dual All-Australian and three-time Club Champion.
Brown told the club website he was humbled to be inducted into the Lions’ Hall of Fame, after only ever dreaming to play for the Lions.
“It’s a good time to reflect and feel proud of my career after playing for the same Club as my father. It’s really nice to have him here with me, it really is a family affair,” he said.
“It’s a huge part of my life, growing up all I wanted to do was play for the Lions.”
As a 19-year-old he won his first premiership with the Lions in 2001, playing at centre half forward. It was just the start of something special, with Brown going on to play in four consecutive Grand Finals.
“You can never top the premierships, they were unbelievable,” he said.
