Chris Turner

28 April 2015

The Football League are saddened to hear of the passing of Chris Turner, at the age of 64.

Cambridgeshire-born Turner began his playing days at Peterborough United, where he appeared 364 times in a nine-year spell, scoring 43 goals.

He also represented the likes of Luton Town, Cambridge United, Swindon Town and Southend United.

Turner retired in 1984 and moved straight into management, where he took the reins at Cambridge to lay the foundations of a squad that achieved promotion from the Fourth to the Second Division.

He returned to Peterborough as manager in January 1991, and won back-to-back promotions to take Posh into the First Division, and also held the position of Chairman at the club.

Turner was diagnosed with frontal lobe dementia in 2006, and passed away on Monday.
