A fast medium bowler, Broadhurst made his First-Class debut for Yorkshire in 1991 and appeared for England Young Cricketers and the country's Under-19s. He was released by his native county - he was born on 20 June 1974 in Worsborough, Barnsley - at the end of 1994, having played in just five First-Class games and a single Sunday League match.
He joined Nottinghamshire for 1995 but a shin muscle injury developed during pre-season practice and he missed virtually the whole summer. His only First-Class match for Notts was v Oxford University at The Park in May 1996, when he failed to take a wicket - not entirely surprising as fewer than 43 overs were played in a scheduled three-day fixture.
Nottinghamshire First-Class Number: 537
