About Broady

Hi there, I’m Mark Broadhurst. My passion (aside from my beautiful family) is sport. I’m a sports nerd!!! I love Football, Cricket, Boxing, MMA, Athletics, Tennis, Skiing, Snowboarding and most other sports.

I’m a former Professional Cricketer. I was a young fast bowler and represented Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and Kent between 1990 and 1999. I also represented England at all youth levels including 3 England U19 tours. I made my first class debut for Yorkshire at aged 16, a proper wipper snapper!

Even though I played cricket as a profession my real sporting passion is football. I’ve been studying the beautiful game since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I was a decent player as a youth and represented my home town at schoolboy level but I had no left foot and cricket took over from 15 onwards. I’ve started playing again at O35 level and my son is a promising footballer so I’ve started coaching kids.

Like I said, I’m sports obsessed. I’ve run competitive Marathons, half marathons, 10k and 5k races. I’ve also practiced Martial Arts for 16 years, predominately kickboxing but have a keen interest in all fighting arts and have been a massive boxing fan since a very early age.

I hope you enjoy my daily blogs, they will be opinionated so let me know your own thoughts on the topics and we can have some banter! Just keep it clean!
