BROADHURST REFLECTS: Monday’s return to Stourbridge + award

Prior to our Bank Holiday Monday game versus Stourbridge, Sporting player and Glassboys legend Leon Broadhurst received an award to mark his service to the club; he has reflected on that here, as well as his aspirations with the Rouslers…

“It was an honour to be back at Stourbridge, but strange to be in the away dressing room. Firstly, I want to thank the club and the board for my award I received prior to the game.

“I had a fantastic 16 years there; the club and the fans have been superb to me and my family during my tenure.

“It was mixed emotions on the lead up to Monday’s game, but when the whistle went, I was fully committed to beating Stourbridge

“My chapter with Stourbridge has closed and I am very excited to achieve great things with Bromsgrove Sporting.

“On Monday, we pushed a very good side all the way and I honestly believe we should of got something out the game.

“It was a very tough game and not many clubs will go there and perform the way we did, with them clinging on towards the end.

“The game did not have many chances for either side; Stourbridge gave us a lot of respect, which is a credit to the way we have started this season and how we have performed.

“During the game, I thought we defended very well as a team, we matched them in the midfield and Shaq (McDonald) and Rich (Gregory) were a handful all game.

“Stourbridge adapted their game to stop us playing, which is a massive compliment.

“I believe that if we maintain that level of performance, we will be right up there.

“Personally, I have struggled over past four weeks due to a knee injury – I am now fully fit and ready to give it my all and use my experience to help Bromsgrove achieve great things this season.”
