Turner: Neil McDougall (Neil)

1913-1914 (Leeds City Player Details)

Outside Right

Born: Glasgow: 07-08-1892

Debut: v Huddersfield Town (a): 08-11-1913

Height & Weight: Unknown

Turner started with Petershill but joined Second Division Leeds City in September 1913. Simpson Bainbridge was the first choice Outside Right at Elland Road and Turner had to bide his time. Bainbridge was injured and Turner made his debut at Huddersfield Town and scored the Leeds goal in a 1-1 draw and he retained the Right Wing spot the following week for the 1-0 win over Lincoln City at Elland Road. He lost his right wing spot when the Leeds stalwart Fred Croot was brought in at Outside Left and Ivan Sharpe was moved to the right wing. Simpson Bainbridge came back the following week and that meant another stint in the reserves for Turner. His next chance came when he was picked for both the games on Easter Monday and Tuesday. City played hosts to Bristol City on the Monday and it was Turnerís goal that gave his team both points in a 1-0 win. City kept their unbeaten record with Turner in the team with a 0-0 draw with Clapton Orient on the Tuesday. Turner left Elland Road for Raith Rovers and after World War One he returned to England and joined First Division Sunderland but only played one game in the League and joined Third Division South Aberdare Athletic in 1921 where he scored twice in twenty-two League games before returning to Scotland with Dundee and finished his career in the U.S.A. with Bethlehem Steel, New Bedford Whalers and Springfield Babes.
