Biography

Born into a sporting family, Glenn Turner started hockey at the age of five. After a deal made by his father and his father’s best friend over the table at a club room hockey soon became the chosen sport among both families.

Finishing 2015 off in style, the Australian forward helped the Kookaburras to a podium finish at the prestigious World League Final in Raipur, before packing his bags again to join the Kalinga Lancers in the 2016 Coal Hockey India League, who finished 2016 runners-up to the Jaypee Punjab Warriors.

Putting his engineering degree on hold at the University of Queensland while he focuses on his hockey, Turner hopes to continue with his degree in the near future. The father of a young family, Turner spends much of his time juggling family commitments and hockey life.

Enjoying reading during his down time, Turner enjoys autobiographies; Andre Agassi, Wayne Bennett and Alex Ferguson being particular favourites.

Glenn Turner otherwise known as ‘GT’ or ‘Bangers’ is an NRL fanatic, supporting the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
