Iain Turner returns as Goalkeeper Coach

31 July 2019

Tranmere Rovers can confirm the appointment of Iain Turner as the Club’s new goalkeeper coach.

Scotsman Turner, 35, who spent two-years at Tranmere between 2015-2017, returns to Prenton Park  to work as a part of Micky Mellon’s coaching staff ahead of the 2019/20 Sky Bet League One season.

Stirling-born Turner will work with the goalkeeping group of Club captain Scott Davies as well as Luke Pilling and Bayleigh Passant. 

Turner was most recently on the books of Non-League Southport in 2018 where he held the role of player/goalkeeper coach.

His playing career in the game saw him represent the likes of Stirling Albion, Everton, Chester City, Doncaster Rovers, Wycombe Wanderers, Crystal Palace, Sheffield Wednesday, Coventry City, Preston North End, Dunfermline Athletic, Barnsley and Sheffield United over the course of 16-years.

Featuring four times in the top-flight for Everton, Turner made his Toffees bow in the 2005/06 campaign in a home fixture against Blackburn Rovers at Goodison Park.

Turner was capped by Scotland’s B and U21 national teams in 2004.

After returning to Prenton Park, he said "It's great to be back after a few years away.

"It was an easy decision to make. I got the call and spoke to my family and made the decision the next day.

"Tranmere have had a great few years and have worked really hard to get back to League One. I can't wait to get going now."

Iain succeeds Steve Banks as Tranmere Rovers’ goalkeeper coach.
