Three Generations playing for Vernon Sports
Team Turton (l-r) Steve, son Stephen & Grandson Adam Riley
Three generations of the Turton family were on the pitch at the same time playing for Vernon Sports FC in their division 2 clash with Gregson Lane Wanderers on Thursday 3 May.
Steve Turton (aged 61), his son Stephen (38) and grandson Adam Ryan (21) all featured in the game with Steve, who keeps himself very fit, coming on as a late substitute.
It’s safe to say that Vernon Sports and the Turton family have strong connections. Steve Turton, who started playing Sunday League football with the Preston Fire FC, has been with Vernon Sports for the last 27 years and he is the club secretary. His son Stephen first played for the club 22 years ago when he was 16 and Adam has been with Vernons for the past four seasons.
There can’t be many instances where a Grandad, Son and Grandson have played at the same time in the same team in a competitive match and it must be unique in our League.
