34 year old centre midfielder Phil Turnbull is capable of playing with either foot and is described as fiercely competitive player.
Having started out at Hartlepool United before joining York City, with loan spells at Blyth Spartans and Gateshead, a permanent move to Gateshead in 2008 seen him play over 300 games for the Tynesiders.
In a 7 season spell, which included two successive promotions, the club eventually moved up to The National League and he became a firm favourite at The International Stadium before moving to Darlington in 2015 where he would gain promotion to The National League North in his first season.
A move to his home town club South Shields happened in 2018 and the move was seen a major signing for the club. He has been key to the recent playing success at South Shields but with the club moving to full time this season Chris Swailes wasted no time in bringing the vastly experienced and talented midfielder to the UTS Stadium.
