Biography

Like his Cornwall team mate Jake Lloyd, 20-year-old Matty Turton moved to the Duchy to explore employment opportunities and lucked in when the Choughs were formed in November 2021.

Turton had already experienced rugby league in the Duchy by playing for the Cornwall county side in their Martin Roddy MBE Trophy win over Devon last year.

He attended the club’s January player trial and after earning himself a chance to train with the squad, has impressed enough to win a contract for Cornwall’s Betfred League 1 season. Born and raised in Leigh, Turton came through the ranks at the town’s amateur club Leigh Miners Rangers.
