The awards were postponed from March due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the winners have now been revealed without a ceremony being held.
In September, Brown netted a cracker for the Irish U17s against Greece and she played a starring role as the Irish side progressed to the Elite Round of the UEFA Women’s Championship qualifiers.
Brown has been a regular feature on Irish squads in recent years and her award is in recognition of her exploits with the Under-16s.
