Career[edit]

West Ham United[edit]

Turgott joined West Ham United aged 8 becoming a youth and development squad player.[3] He made his West Ham debut on 5 January 2014 in a 5–0 FA Cup defeat by Nottingham Forest.[4] This was his only appearance for West Ham before being released in 2015.[5][6]

Loan Spells[edit]

He moved on loan from West Ham United to Bradford City in November 2012,[7] and made his professional debut in the FA Cup in a 1–1 draw against Brentford on 30 November 2012.[8] Turgott stated in December 2012 that he hoped the loan move would toughen him up.[9] On 4 March 2013, he returned to West Ham after his loan spell ended, having made 11 appearances for the club.[10]

Turgott signed an initial one-month loan deal with Colchester United on 28 November 2013.[11] Turgott made his Colchester United debut on 14 December 2013, coming on as a half time substitute in a 4–0 home defeat by Notts County.[12] He scored his first club career goal on 26 December 2013, the opener in a 4–0 home win over Stevenage.[13] Turgott returned to West Ham at the end of his loan having played four times and scoring once for Colchester.[14]

On 17 January 2014, Turgott joined Rotherham United on an initial one-month loan.[15] He made his Rotherham debut a day later in a 3–0 away win against Shrewsbury Town coming on as an 88th-minute substitute for Ben Pringle.[16] This was his only appearance for Rotherham before he was recalled by West Ham in February 2014.[17]

On 27 March 2014, Turgott joined League Two side Dagenham & Redbridge on loan for the remainder of the 2013–14 season.[18] Turgott made his Dagenham & Redbridge two days after signing for the club, making his first start for them, in a 1–0 win over Oxford United.[19] Turgott went on to make five appearance for the club.

Coventry City[edit]

Having been released from his contract by West Ham United, on 2 February 2015, Turgott signed for Coventry City on a short-term deal.[6]

Turgott made his Coventry City debut on 3 March 2015, coming on as a substitute for Adam Barton in the second half, in a 1–0 loss against Barnsley.[20] Turgott scored his only Coventry goal on 28 March in a 0–1 away win against Peterborough United following-up a shot from Sanmi Odelusi.[21] He was released by Coventry at the end of the 2014–15 season.[22]

Leyton Orient[edit]

Turgott joined League Two club Leyton Orient on a one-year contract on 19 June 2015.[23] He made his debut as a substitute on the opening day of the season, coming on for Jay Simpson in the 2–0 home win over Barnet,[24] and scored his first goal for the club in the 3–0 win over Stevenage on 18 August.[25] His opening goal for Leyton Orient was described as a "stunning goal" by their manager, Ian Hendon. Meeting a right-wing cross from Sean Clohessy, Turgott hit a first-time volley from 18 yards (16 m) past the Stevenage goalkeeper, Chris Day.[26] In May 2016, he was released from Leyton Orient when it was announced that he would not be retained when his contract expired.[27]

Bromley[edit]

On 4 August 2016, after a successful pre-season in which he had scored four goals, it was announced that Turgott had signed for hometown club Bromley.[28]

International career[edit]

He has represented England up to under-19 level.[29] He scored in the 2011 FIFA U-17 World Cup against Canada and helped England to top their group.[30] He scored his first goal at under-19 level during 2013 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship qualification in a 3–0 win against Estonia.[31] He also scored twice in the 6–0 win against Faroe Islands,[32] helping England finish top of their qualification group which also contained Ukraine.[33]
