Steven "Steve" Brown (born 6 July 1966 in Northampton) is an English former professional footballer who made nearly 550 appearances in the Football League playing as a midfielder for Northampton Town and Wycombe Wanderers.

Brown started his career at Northampton Town, but left in December 1985 to join Irthlingborough Diamonds. He rejoined Northampton in July 1989 and was signed for Wycombe Wanderers in February 1994 by Martin O'Neill. He was a fans' favourite at the club, playing in 443 games and scoring 43 goals in a Wycombe career which lasted for 10 years. He was part of the team that reached the semi-finals of the FA Cup in 2001.

Brown retired as a player in May 2004 but was appointed as assistant to Wycombe manager John Gorman along with fellow Blues legend Keith Ryan in November 2004. After Gorman's switch to Northampton, there was speculation that Brown would follow as he had strong links to the club. However, Wycombe confirmed that Brown would be staying on to work with new manager Paul Lambert. In June 2007, Brown and Ryan left the club for what the club described as financial reasons.

In July 2007, Brown was appointed by John Gregory, his former manager at Wycombe, as youth team manager at Queens Park Rangers, a post he held until 2009.
