Brian was born at Bury, Lancashire. He played for Bury in his early career and then left Gigg Lane to join Darlington. He was Darlington's regular centre half and whilst with them he formed an inseparable partnership with Joe Jacques. He followed Joe to Roots Hall where he is probably the best centre half Southend have had on their books since the ground was opened. He was joint Player of the Year with Bill Garner last season and no player has played 'better to win this award.
