Ben Turner Career


Turner, a 5-year-old boy from Birmingham, West Midlands, joined Sporting Boys in the Central Warwickshire league, where he remained until he joined the Coventry City FC academy ranks at the age of 11 years old. Turner made his competitive debut against Stoke City on August 22, 2006.

Turner signed for Peterborough United on a month loan on September 14, 2006. He made his debut in a 1–0 win over Swindon Town the day before. Turner appeared on six more occasions before being able to have his loan term extending by another month. After playing another four games for the Posh in December, he returned to Coventry in December.

Since returning from Bristol City, Turner played in two FA Cup games. He joined Oldham Athletic on loan on February 23, 2007. He made his debut the next day, against AFC Bournemouth, where he received his first red card of his career. On returning to Coventry, he began his Sky Blues in a 1–0 loss to West Bromwich Albion, where he was issued a first-half red card. Iain Dowie tried to appeal the dismissal, but the appeal was dismissed and he was banned from playing a four-match suspension, essentially ending his season and the first three games of the following season. Turner signed a new two-year deal at the end of the season, keeping him with the club until the summer of 2009.

Turner missed the first three league games due to his suspension at the start of the season. In the League Cup, they got off to victories over Carlisle United and Premier League champions Manchester United. In a 1–1 draw against Charlton Athletic, his first league game of the season, he continued to progress to the first team throughout the season.

Turner was mainly used as injury cover for the Sky Blues defense under new manager Chris Coleman. However, in January 2009, he signed a new deal, committing him to the team until the 2009–2010 season.

Turner's first competitive goal was against Derby County on August 21, 2010, four years after making his debut in October. He then scored two goals against Swansea City and Bristol City in a row. On 6 November, he sustained a knee injury after blocking a shot. Turner agreed a new three-and-half year contract to remain at the Ricoh Arena until 2014. Turner did not play for the remainder of the season due to his knee injury.

Despite being banned out until mid-September 2011, Turner managed to pique the attention of Championship clubs such as Birmingham City and Cardiff City. Turner was in discussions with Cardiff City on a potential transfer that would be in a region of £750,000, and could result in striker Jon Parkin going the other way.

Turner did a medical and agreed to a three-year contract with Cardiff City on August 30. The transaction was finalized the next day, when he paid for an undisclosed fee, which was estimated to be £750,000. Turner's knee injury, which occurred in the previous season, kept him out for the first few games after his transfer, but he did make a cameback for the Development Squad against Southampton on September 13th, which resulted in a 1–0 loss for the Bluebirds. Turner's first match with Cardiff's first team was as an injured replacement against Southampton in the Championship on September 28. His debut came as an 84th-minute replacement against Hull City on October 1st. In 2–2 against Ipswich Town, his first appearance came two weeks later. On October 30, he made his 100th appearance in his career against Leeds United. In a 3–2 loss to Middlesbrough on December 17, Turner's first goal for Cardiff came on December 17, 2011. In 1–1 draw with Southampton on January 31, he made his 100th appearance in the league.

Turner scored a dramatic equalizer against Liverpool at Wembley Stadium in the League Cup Final, a result that was praised for City's tenacity against the Premier League giants. Cardiff was ultimately defeated 3–2 on penalties. He scored his third goal against Middlesbrough, this time at the Riverside Stadium, and Cardiff defeated 2–0.

Turner was named as the first-choice centre-half alongside captain Mark Hudson in the 2012-2013 season. He was kept out of the team by new signing Matt Connolly after returning from injury early in the season. He signed a new deal with Cardiff on December 12th, having regained his first-team berth, and he continued his first-team debut. Turner was a vital part of the Cardiff team that gained promotion from the Championship as the Champions.

Cardiff spent one season in the top flight before returning to the Championships. Turner suffered with a serious injury in 2014-2015, which resulted in him missing the majority of the season. Turner's injury problems persisted throughout the season, and after a comeback for Cardiff's growth, he joined Coventry City on loan in November. Turner scored in his first game back at Ricoh Arena, but he sustained another ankle injury after 5 appearances and returned to Cardiff. Turner was not offered a new deal by the club at the time and was eventually released, making his final appearance against Birmingham City.

Turner would sign Burton Albion, a newcomer to the Championship, on June 23.

Turner was signed by Mansfield Town on February 2, 2019, extending his contract until the end of the season. He turned down a new deal with Mansfield in June 2019.

Turner was born in Notts County on July 31, 2019.

He dropped into the Northern Premier League Premier Division for the 2021-22 season, where he was a member of the Buxton team that defeated Champions. On May 27th, 2022, he signed for Ilkeston Town's newly promoted Northern Premier League Premier Division side, directed by Martin Carruthers.

International career

He was called up to the England under-19 squad twice, but he made his debut against Czech Republic on May 20th, 2007 in a UEFA European U-19 Championship Tournament, but was later replaced by Jack Hobbs of Liverpool.

He is also eligible to play for Wales as a result of his Welsh grandparents' birth. Turner, on the other hand, turned down the opportunity to play for Wales.
