Greg Broughton Biography

Wednesday, 2 September 2015
Greg Broughton has announced his retirement and will get a farewell game with the Suns at the SCG against the Sydney in the final round of the 2015 regular season.

Broughton admitted that 2015 was a struggle, both mentally and physically, for him.

"I think it's a pretty easy decision on my behalf," he said.

"I think early days my body would hold up (better). I think I like to say I'm more of a crash and bash type player.

"In the latter stages of my career I started to get sorer and sorer and more injuries."

"He's part of our family now. It was tough having him go off the list, but he was just out of contract at the wrong time," Suns list manager Scott Clayton said.

"He'll be our nominated rookie (to be elevated to the senior list) and he's in. We always said we'd come to an arrangement.

"Greg really wants to end up on the Gold Coast, he likes it here and wants to be here. He's been terrific for us."

"He'd rather stay on the Gold Coast and play with us, but he has to go through this process," Gold Coast list manager Scott Clayton said.

"We'll take him as a rookie if we get the opportunity. I don't think he's keen to get up and go, but that's the rules and hopefully he remains with us."

Gold Coast recruit Greg Broughton says he is enjoying life with his new team.

"It's an exciting young group and I'm looking forward to starting in the next month. It's been hard work over the last couple of months, meeting new guys and a new coaching group, but it's been great."

"He doesn't get rattled and he has no fear about putting it on the line," Fremantle coach Mark Harvey said.

"Greg has also got a creative side to his game and has good composure for a guy who hasn't played at the elite level."
