Career[edit]

Preston North End[edit]

A former Warrington Town and Manchester United schoolboy player, Brownhill joined the Preston North End youth team at the start of the 2012–13 season, making his first team debut as a substitute in the Football League Trophy on 8 October 2013.[4][5]

Brownhill scored the winning goal in his first league start against Gillingham on 19 October 2013,[6] and drew praise from manager Simon Grayson for his overall performance.[7] He went on to notch an additional two goals in 2013 against Crawley Town and Carlisle United – the second of these, winning the Preston North End Goal of 2013 Award, after a 13 pass move in which every outfield player touched the ball at least once.

Barnsley (loan)[edit]

On 14 January 2016, Brownhill joined League 1 side Barnsley on an initial month-long loan deal.[8] He went straight into the starting line-up for Barnsley's next game against Shrewsbury.[9] He scored his first goal for Barnsley in a 3–1 win over Walsall on 5 March 2016.[10] On 1 February 2016 Brownhill's loan was extended to the end of the season. [11]

Bristol City[edit]

On 2 June 2016, it was announced that Brownhill would join Bristol City on a two-year deal upon his contract expiry at Preston North End.[12]

On 29 April 2017 Brownhill scored his first goal for Bristol City against Brighton & Hove Albion, beating them 0–1 away from home and securing City's place in the Championship for the 2017–18 season.[13]

On 5 January 2019, Brownhill scored the only goal as Bristol City won 1–0 to upset Premier League side Huddersfield Town in the FA Cup third round.[14]
