Born in Dudley, Worcestershire, Broadbent commenced his career with Dudley Town before joining Notts County in March 1952. After 11 goals in 31 games, and playing a part in the club's run to the FA Cup quarter-finals, he linked up with Sheffield Wednesday in July 1955, a fee of £6,000 securing his services. His first season for the club saw him record 12 goals as Wednesday secured the Football League Second Division title. On Christmas Eve 1957 he moved on to join Rotherham United and then on to Doncaster Rovers. In November 1961 he joined Lincoln City before returning to Doncaster Rovers in exchange for Bobby Rooney. Spells at Bradford Park Avenue and Hartlepools United ended his League career after 485 games and 99 goals.
Broadbent died in Sheffield, where he had lived since joining Sheffield Wednesday. His death was marked by a minute's silence before Doncaster Rovers' 0–0 home draw with Leyton Orient on 4 November 2006.
