- Club hold option for additional year in 2026
- Comments from Leigh Bromby and Danny Schofield
We are delighted to confirm that Ollie Turton has committed his future to the Club until at least 2025!
Having joined from Blackpool in the summer of 2021, the 29-year-old became a fan favourite over the course of the 2021/22 season with his displays from both right back and the right side of a back three often singled out for praise.
Signing until 2025 – with the Club holding an option for 2026 – this deal will take Turton to at least 33-years-old, with the defender pledging his prime years to Town.
Established as a senior member of the squad, Ollie is often singled out for the maturity, consistency and dedication within his performances, with his calm nature a real asset to Town’s back line.
In recognition of his fine performances across the 2021/22 season, Turton was awarded the number two shirt ahead of the start of this campaign, underlining his importance to our side.
Head of Football Operations Leigh Bromby commented:
“Ollie has shown a desire to improve and grow since joining the Club in 2021, and this deal is a deserved reward for how much his performances have taken a leap.
“Still just 29-years-old, we believe that there’s still room for improvement in his game, and he has the temperament and work ethic to push himself to be the best possible player he can.
“A leader by example, he is a well-liked and appreciated senior member of our squad, and the way he conducts himself both on and off the field is a credit to who he is, and completely in line for what we look for at this Club.”
Head Coach Danny Schofield added:
“Ollie has been a fantastic professional since he arrived at the Club.
“He gives his all in every training session and in every game, pushing himself to improve and maximise his potential.
“He is a player who sets a perfect example of what it takes to be a professional football player. His versatility is a real asset, allowing him to play in a number of positions and help the team in different areas.
“He is a valued and well-liked member of our squad and it is fantastic for the Club that Ollie has agreed to sign a new deal to continue his journey here.”
