Midfielder Kurtis Turner joined us from Barnsley ahead of the 2012/13 campaign.
The 19-year-old, who was named as captain shortly after his arrival at One Call Stadium, boasts a wealth of experience and once played against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge for his former employers.
Unfortunate not to be offered a professional contract at Oakwell, Turner’s exceptional long-range passing ability and tireless work-rate has made him a stand-out figure in our youth team.
