John Turner


We come, we go, none of us in the turn of events last for much of a muchness. I do not want to sound morbid, but I am morbid. John Turner only played one match for Falkirk FC, soon fell ill, then about a year later died. We have no idea, if he was run-of-the mill, or if he was next best thing, remeniscent of N.F.Callaway who scored a double Century in his only match at cricket, then promptly got shot in the War [was he better than Bradman?, We will never know].
