Oldest England player Broadis dies

Ivor Broadis, who was the oldest living former England international, has passed away at the age of 96.

The inside forward won 14 caps and scored eight goals for his country between 1951 and 1954.

Broadis’ daughter Gill told the News & Star: “It was sudden, but Dad was very peaceful when he died, and I was with him.

“It is a very sad time, but we will always be very proud of him. He had a good life, and we will never forget how happy and proud he was when he was given the freedom of Carlisle last year.”

Broadis represented Sunderland, Manchester City, Newcastle, and Queen of the South during a 15-year playing career, as well as Carlisle, where he was player-manager at the age of just 23.
