Broadbent keen to deliver goals for Rovers

9 July 2023

His first goal in Rovers colours was a spectacular one and George Broadbent is determined there will be plenty more to come.

The summer signing put Rovers ahead in the friendly against Rossington Main with a powerful strike from outside the box.

Broadbent is keen to contribute goals from midfield in the coming season - though he is not promising they will all be as eye-catching.

He said: “It came to me and Jamie [Sterry] was screaming for it on the outside but I hit it and luckily it went in the back of the net.

“It’s something I want to do, I want to contribute to goals. It’s not always on the strikers and if the midfielders can get goals, it’ll make everyone’s life easier.

“I’m not sure they’ll all be like that but a goal is a goal at the end of the day.”

The 22-year-old is pleased with the ease in which he has settled into life at Rovers, following his move across South Yorkshire from Sheffield United.

“We’ve had tough days but it’s been good,” he said. “The lads have welcomed the new signings really well and we’ve settled in well, getting comfortable with everyone.

“The next step is being comfortable with each other on the pitch, knowing what people want, what people can do and knowing each other better.

“The lads are class. From the first day, speaking to each other, everyone wants to be around each other and make everyone feel comfortable. That’s come from the gaffer and Cliff as well, making sure I’m settled.

“It’s been really good.”
