Having played for Geelong West, whom he helped to a stirring come from behind win over Caulfield in the 1972 VFA second division grand final, Mark Browne moved to Geelong where he made his senior debut in 1974. A smooth ball handler and precise kick, he played most of his games either on a half back flank or as a ruck-rover. His VFL career with the Cats comprised 87 games played between 1974 and 1978, in the course of which he scored 60 goals.

In 1979 Browne resumed at Geelong West where, by the time he retired in 1984, he had registered 109 VFA games and 256 goals. He was a member of the Roosters’ losing first division grand final team in 1979 against Coburg.
