Dajaune Brown joined Derby County’s Under-18s squad as a first-year scholar in the summer of 2022.
The striker had previously played for the Under-18s whilst still a schoolboy during the 2020/21 and 2021/22 seasons, including two goals in six league appearances in the latter.
His two goals came in 1-0 wins for the Rams, against Everton on home turf in January 2022 and then on the road at Nottingham Forest the following month.
Brown’s development stepped up massively in 2022/23 and he impressed enough during his nine appearances with the Under-18s to make three appearances for the Under-21s in Premier League 2.
The teenager was included in the first-team squad for the Rams’ Emirates FA Cup Fourth Round tie against Premier League West Ham United and travelled to Spain with the first-team for the pre-season training camp in July 2023 ahead of the 2023/24 season.
Brown has been with the Rams since being a young boy and progressed through the Academy ranks.
