Blueseum - Online Carlton Football Club Museum



A long-kicking right-footer with an impressive leap, Peter Brown was recruited by Carlton in 1976 as a 17 year-old from the tiny central Victorian town of Campbell's Creek which is located near Castlemaine. Over the ensuing four seasons he matured into a handy key forward, and was a member of Carlton’s 1979 Premiership team in his 25th senior appearance for the Blues.

Brown began his career at Princes Park with Carlton’s Under-19 squad and made rapid progress. He was still just 17 when he was promoted to the senior team for the first time in June, 1976, when Carlton travelled to Victoria Park to play Collingwood and lost by 16 points. Stationed at full-forward that afternoon, Peter was overwhelmed by the Magpie defence and hardly sighted. He was omitted from the team the following week, and had to wait more than 12 months for his next senior opportunity, which came late in 1977 when he was recalled for three games - each time as a reserve.
