John Turner


John Turner is a right-arm fast bowler and right-hand batter.

He was born in Johannesburg, South Africa and is a product of Hampshire’s highly successful youth system.

Having come through the Hampshire age group system, Turner then impressed during Second XI performances at the start of the 2021 season with natural pace and bounce.

A handful for any batter, in 2021 he made his First XI debut for Hampshire in the first Royal London Cup fixture against Essex at The Ageas Bowl.

Incredibly, his first scalp for the Club was England record test run scorer Alastair Cook, having him caught at mid-wicket for just four runs.

His best spell in the competition was against Worcestershire where he combined with fellow South African Kyle Abbott to rip through the Pears batting line up, with Turner taking three wickets for only 44 runs.

These impressive contributions and more stellar performances in the Second XI were rewarded with a rookie contract for the 2022 season in which he made his First-Class debut against a Sri Lankan Development XI, taking 5-31.

Turner again shone in the One-Day competition as a youthful Hampshire made the semi-final. His 20 wickets at an average of 16.70 saw him top of his side’s wicket taking charts, while he finished joint second across the competition. He also took two five-wicket hauls, with his best figures of 5-25 coming against Lancashire at The Ageas Bowl.
