Drewe Broughton

Drewe Broughton

Born 25 October 1978 (Age 25 at debut)

Position: Forward

(Diamonds player #199)

Total appearances 61 – 17 goals

(58 League, 2 FA Cup, 1 League Trophy)

First spell

Debut: 16 October 2004 (Home Chester City)

Final game: 11 December 2004 (Away Mansfield Town)

Second spell

Debut: 12 February 2005 (Home Wycombe Wanderers)

Final game: 29 April 2006 (Away Boston United)

Drewe started his career as a trainee at Norwich City where between 1996 and 1998, he made three League starts and six substitute appearances, scoring one goal in the process. Whilst at the Canaries, Drewe was loaned out to Wigan Athletic for one month in August 1997, where he was involved in eight games at the start of the 1997/1998 season. Unwanted by Norwich, both Brentford and Peterborough United put in bids for the striker and on 28 October 1998, he signed for Brentford for £100,000. After just a single appearance however, Brentford and Peterborough came to an agreement and just nineteen days later, he joined the Posh for the same transfer fee. He went straight into the first team, scoring three goals in five games, but injuries and loss of form saw him finish the season on the bench. He remained with Peterborough the following season but made little impact and after 39 appearances (17 as substitute) and 9 goals, he went out on loan to four different clubs during the remainder of his stay – Nuneaton Borough (February to May 2000), Dagenham & Redbridge (September to December 2000), Stevenegae Borough (December 2000 to January 2001), and Kidderminster Harriers (January to February 2001). At the end of that final loan, he moved to Kidderninster on a permanent basis, with Harriers paying out a £50,000 transfer fee to keep him at Aggborough until the summer of 2003.

Drewe made 103 appearances for Harriers (including the loan period), and scored 23 goals, but was released at the end of his contract. During June 2003, he signed for Southend United on a free transfer but a shortage of goals saw him made available for a loan move again, and he arrived at Nene Park on 14 October 2004 for an initial period of one month – later extended to two months before returning to Roots Hall.

In 10 games for Diamonds, he scored five times, including a hat-trick in the 5-1 win against Notts County. He returned to Southend on 15 December, and immediately went on loan to Wycombe Wanderers. He was recalled on 11 February 2005 in order to complete a permanent move to Nene Park. He quickly set up a partnership with loanee Billy Sharp and perhaps his finest moment for Diamonds came shortly after he had returned when he scored one of the three goals that beat Northampton Town at Nene Park. Unfortunately, in his next match, he picked up a red card against Lincoln City, and the ten-man Diamonds quickly conceded three goals losing 1-4.

He struggled with disciplinary problems on the field, and in addition to many yellow cards, he picked up two red cards in the first two months of the 2005/2006 season as the Diamonds struggled to stay in the Football League – finally leaving the club after he had been unable to help them avoid the drop to the Conference in 2006. He scored 10 goals in 39 appearances during that season.

Drewe was released in May 2006, joining League Two side Chester City on 16 June 2006, but went out on an end of season loan to Boston United in October 2006, but he was again unable to help them avoid the drop out of the Football League in 2007. He then moved to the MK Dons in the summer of 2007. but again went out on loan in January 2008, this time to Wrexham, but he was once again unable to help them avoid the drop out of the Football League in 2008.

In August 2008, he joined Rotherham United, and scored 13 goals in 69 games for the Millers. Towards the end of his stay, he went on loan to Lincoln City in February 2010, and eventually joined the Imps on a permanent basis at the end of the season. After 20 games including just 9 starts however, he had still to score for the Imps and on 18 February 2011, went out on loan to Conference side AFC Wimbledon, but was recalled by Lincoln on 31 March after just 8 appearances, and two goals for the Dons. He made four appearances for Lincoln on his return but once again, he was unable to help them avoid the drop out of the Football League in 2011.

During July 2011, he went on trial at newly promoted Conference side Alfreton Town and after initially failing to gain a contract, he signed for the Reds on 8 September 2011 on a non-contract deal, but following a red card on 1 October, he was released. He joined Conference South side Thurrock on 21 October 2011. Drewe was released after less than three months, and joined Southern League Premier side Arlesey Town on 19 January 2012. His stay was short lived however and he joined Conference side Darlington on 2 March 2012 until the end of the season to try to help them escape the threat of relegation. He picked up a red card in the Quakers penultimate game of the season, having been unable to help them avoid the drop out of the Conference in 2012. He retired from the game shortly afterwards.

Tom Shaw

Born 1 December 1986 (Age 17 at debut)

Position: Midfielder

(Diamonds player #196)

Total appearances 72 – 9 goals

(53 League, 4 FA Cup, 3 FA Trophy, 5 League Cup, 3 Hillier Senior Cup, 4 Maunsell Cup)

Debut:

14 September 2004 (Home Northampton Town)

Final game:

26 April 2008 (Home Aldershot Town)

Tom moved to Rushden & Diamonds youth set up as a 16 year old after leaving Nottingham Forest Academy. Following some impressive performances in midfield for the Youth team and playing in the County Cup games, he earned the opportunity to feature in the first team – making his league debut as a substitute against Barnet at the end of the 2005/2006 season after a short spell at Rugby Town on work experience in March 2006. He was then able to make his full debut the following season at Kidderminster after signing a one year professional contract, and kept Dave Savage out of the side on a number of occasions. With the changes in management during that season, he lost his place in the side and was sent out on a one month loan spell to Nuneaton Borough on 22 January 2007 (later extended till the end of the season), but was recalled when Garry Hill took the reins, quickly re-establishing his starting role in midfield and earning a new 2 year contract at the start of the 2007/2008 season. During that year, he kept a regular first team place, scoring four goals in a five game spell around Christmas. Although he was initially retained for the following season, he left the club by mutual consent in July 2008 after being advised that he would have little chance of making the starting eleven.

Tom Shaw controls the ball

Tom joined Mansfield Town on a one year contract on 8 August 2008, but became totally disillusioned after being named on the bench for the first 11 games of the season without making a first team appearance. He was allowed to leave and joined Conference North side Tamworth on 9 October 2008, helping them to gain promotion that season. On 11 June 2010, he signed a one-year deal with Conference side Kidderminster Harriers. He left at the end of the season, and joined Cambridge United on 13 May 2011, on a two year contract. He scored 13 goals in 79 appearances for the U’s, before leaving at the end of his contract. On 1 July 2013, Tom signed for fellow Conference side Alfreton Town on a two-year deal, and after the end of that deal he joined Chester FC. He moved to Tamworth FC in January 2018 before hanging up his boots at the end of that season to become Lincoln City Academy Coach. His Wikipedia entry is here.

On his return to Ipswich Town, he was released, and signed a permanent one year deal at Nene Park on 19 May 2009. After 46 appearances during the following season, Kurt signed another one year deal in the summer, but the arrival of left back Jamie Day resulted in him being second choice in the starting eleven for the 2010/2011 season.
