Cobbler Turnbull Joins On Loan

25 January 2013

Our midfield ranks have been boosted with the addition of Northampton Town midfielder Paul Turnbull on loan until the end of the season.

Cheshire-born Turnbull is a product of Stockport County's youth system and became the youngest player to represent the Hatters in the Football League, making his first class bow as a 16-year-old in 2005.

Gaining experience on loan at Altrincham in the 2007/08 season, Turnbull went on to make over 150 appearances for Stockport before joining Northampton in the summer of 2011.

He played 14 times in League 2 for the Cobblers last season but finished the campaign chalking up a similar amount of appearances back with Stockport, who he joined on loan during the January transfer window.

Turnbull returned to Edgeley Park for a third spell in September and was on the scoresheet in County's 3-3 draw at Sincil Bank a month later before returning to Northampton following the completion of his 93-day loan.

He has been handed the number 35 shirt and will go straight into the squad for Saturday's visit of Forest Green Rovers.
