Julian Broddle

Julian Broddle (born November 1, 1964) is an English former professional footballer who played as a left back.


Broddle began his professional career with Sheffield United and won promotion with the club in 1981-82, although played just once for the first team. In 1983, he moved to Scunthorpe United, where he would become one of Scunthorpe's top 25 scorers of all time over a four year period. A three-year spell with Barnsley followed in 1987 before a year at Plymouth Argyle. In December 1990, Broddle moved to Scottish side St Mirren, spending eighteen months with the Paisley outfit. During his time at Love Street, he had a brief loan spell back at Scunthorpe but played just six times and failed to win a permanent move.

Broddle moved to Kirkcaldy with Raith Rovers in July 1993 and started the most successful period of his career. In his three years with Rovers, Broddle suffered relegation from the Premier Division but won the resulting First Division, with a League Cup win in between. Broddle was also part of Raith's only season in Europe. After being released at the end of Raith's second Premier Division relegation in three years, Broddle had a short spell with East Fife, before spending the remainder of the season, and his career, at Ross County. Broddle's affinity with Raith was demonstrated in 2005 when he put his name forward to help during Raith's financial struggle.

Broddle retired in 1997 after having played 399 league matches during his career. He became a policeman, and was put forward for commendation in December 2001 after saving the life of a teenage girl. Broddle received further commendation in February 2008 for "courage and commitment during routine duties".
