Peter Frank Broadbent (born 15 May 1933 in Elvington, Kentmarker) is a former England international footballer. He won major domestic honours with Wolverhampton Wanderers, and appeared in the 1958 World Cup.

Biography

Broadbent began his professional career at Brentford in 1950, but spent less than a year with the club before joining Wolverhampton Wanderers in February 1951 for £10,000.

The midfielder remained with Wolves until 1965, making 497 appearances in total and scoring 145 goals. During this time, he won three league championships (1953/54, 1957/58, 1958/59) and one FA Cup (1960) with the club. He scored the club's first ever goal in European competition when he netted against Schalke in a European Cup tie in November 1958.

He represented England seven times, scoring twice (a double against Wales), after making his debut in the 1958 World Cup against the USSR.

He finally left Molineuxmarker in January 1965 to join Shrewsbury Town for a short spell, before moving to Aston Villa where he played for three years. After a season with Stockport County, he ended his playing career with non-league Bromsgrove Rovers in 1971 before running a babywear business in Halesowen.

In his autobiography, George Best said he was a Wolves fan and that Broadbent was the player he most admired.
