Jordan Turnbull was probably one of the biggest reasons why we were relegated last season. Not only did he put in a number of error-strewn performances for much of the campaign, but the circumstances involved in bringing him in – letting Aaron Martin leave on a free and later selling Romain Vincelot – meant that there was no-one to turn to in defence to allow Turnbull to recover and improve upon those early performances.
Over the course of last season though, we started to see just why Tony Mowbray had paid a fee to bring him in. Capable of bringing the ball out from defence, Turnbull toughened up defensively and became a more assertive figure at the back. There is still room for improvement in his game, but Turnbull is someone who should be a stellar performer at League Two level and possibly someone we may be worried about losing over the course of the coming season.
