DEFENDER Leon Broadhurst has reached out to the Bromsgrove Sporting fanbase in a show of support during the third national lockdown.

In an open message to the Rouslers faithful, the 36-year-old offered a helping hand to those who may be struggling mentally and has reiterated the importance of communication with others in the weeks ahead.

“Most importantly, I hope all of yourselves and your families are all well and safe in this strange time,” he said, in the address on the club’s social media pages.

“I can’t believe how much of a distant memory football feels, but myself, the players and the management cannot wait to be playing again down at the Victoria Ground – hopefully with a full capacity, beer on tap and a great game of football [on show].

“Hopefully that isn’t too far away now, we cannot wait for that opportunity to be brought together as a community.

“If anyone wants to have a discussion with myself or a phone call – football related or not – I’m here to have a chat about anything.

“Myself and the lads are all available via social media, and we’re all more than happy to have a call and discuss things.

“There are people out there to talk to, Bromsgrove Sporting is always here to support.”

The findings of a Football Association survey sent to all clubs between Step Three and Step Six on the outcome of the current campaign are still being processed, with a final decision expected before Bromsgrove’s next scheduled game against Rushall Olympic on March 2.
