28/02/08 - We were informed by Malcolm Spencer today about the death of Brian Heaselgrave. This was also printed in the Evening Mail on Wednesday. A former Bearwood estate agent, Brian had spent the last few years in a nursing home in Redditch.
Brian had two spells with Broomfield during the mid 1980's up until 1990/91. He held the position of Secretary in 1986, 1987 and 1990 and won two of our club competitions. He played in our first Free Press Cup final in 1989 (see below). We pass on our condolences to his son Simon and brother Alan who also played for Broomfield.
