Turnbull returns as Gannon bolsters Hatters midfield

Stockport County yesterday confirmed the return of Paul Turnbull to the Hatters, with the midfielder recently leaving National League side Chester to join the Hatters.

The 29-year-old made his senior debut for the Hatters, aged just 16 years of age, before joining Northampton Town in 2011.

County manager Jim Gannon agreed that the signing strengthens his side both in the middle of the park and in other areas.

“The added depth in the deeper central midfield will also allow players like Jimmy Ball to be used to greater effect in other phases of play”, he told COWS earlier this week. 

“There is still much to play for and it’s great to have an extra midfield option for the run-in especially in light of the issues we are having with some of our midfield players availability, fitness and form”.

Turnbull scored seven times for the Hatters over a six year period, making 170 appearances for the club he joined as a youngster.

He will go straight into the squad for the Brackley Town game on Saturday.
