Ollie Turton was Town’s fourth signing of the 2021 summer transfer window!

The 28-year-old right back, who can also play in central midfield and on the right-hand side of a back three, joined the Terriers as a free agent on 1 July 2021 after helping Blackpool secure promotion to the Sky Bet Championship through their Play-Off Final win over Lincoln City.

Born in Manchester, Turton started his career at Crewe Alexandra, progressing through the Academy having joined aged just nine years old.

His first taste of senior football came at Northern Premier League Division One South club Market Drayton Town in February 2011, and shortly after he made his debut for Crewe!

As an 18-year-old, Ollie’s League 2 debut came in a 2-0 home win over Stockport County in April 2011.

A year later, he was part of the squad that won promotion to League 1 in 2012. He then won the EFL Trophy during the 2012/13 campaign.

At the conclusion of the 2016/17 season, 190 appearances and four goals later, Ollie turned down a new deal at Crewe and joined Blackpool.

The versatile defender made his Blackpool debut in the Club's season-opening fixture at Bradford City on 5 August 2017 and scored his first goal for the Club in a 3-3 draw at Doncaster Rovers two weeks later.

He has gone on to make over 160 appearances for the Seasiders and scored four goals – one of those was an important strike in their Sky Bet League 1 Semi-Final against Oxford United. The 28-year-old then helped the Club win promotion to the Sky Bet Championship.

Since joining the Terriers in the summer of 2021, Turton has made 55 appearances for the Club and established himself as a fan favourite in his first season.

After his initial season, Ollie was rewarded with a long-term contract with Town - committing his fututre to the Club until at least 2025, with an option to extend to 2026.

Despite his great first season, the right back was unlucky during the 2022/23 season and suffered two injury blows, he worked exceptionally hard to regain full fitness following an issue with his ankle ligaments and then suffered his second injury of the season against Wigan Athletic. The 30-year-old suffered a ruptured anterior cruciate ligament, which required surgery and saw him sidelined for the remainder of the season.
