David Browne

Charges against NASFUND Officer dismissed


On Friday January 11th 2019, the Committal Court dismissed the charges after a credible case could not be produced against Brown when first charged in July 2018. 

In a statement NASFUND Board Chairman, Hulala Tokome, said in the process of defending an obviously spurious charge, Brown and his family have endured prolonged stress, not to mention, the considerable disruption to the ordinary business of NASFUND.

Browne cleared to play for Kapuls

The 21-year-old’s senior international debut against Tahiti at the Sir John Guise Stadium in March lasted only 22 minutes after he was red carded for a foul.

After serving a one match ban, Browne has now been given the clear by the FIFA Disciplinary Committee to wear the PNG colours against the Solomon Islands at Lawson Tama Stadium.

The Kapuls will play the Solomon Islands twice at the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia Qualifier- OFC Stage 3.

Drawing a new path

His path began as many others, after watching a video of Cristiano Ronaldo and deciding that he wanted to give football a try. From humble beginnings, living in the Kaugere suburb of Port Moresby, he has gone on to become the first Papua New Guinean footballer to play professionally in Europe. After he signed for Dutch Eredivisie Team, PEC Zwolle in 2015.
