The Blackwood Football Club is excited to announce the signing of Jacob Broad for season 2019. The 26 year-old midfielder is an experienced A Grade footballer having played 106 senior matches for Echunga and Torrens Valley in previous seasons.

Speaking after joining the club, Broad said he was looking forward to the upcoming season. “I’m excited to be joining the Woods. Blackwood is such a good club with a great outlook. It’s close to home and I’ve enjoyed playing football in the Hills and wanted to continue that.”

“I got some friendships with people at Blackwood and thought it was the perfect opportunity to continue to build on them. I can’t wait for the season to start and pull on the red and the green.”

Across the 106 senior games Broad has played in the Hills Football League he has kicked 20 goals whilst being named in the best players on 30 occasions, a 28.3% ratio.
