Maidstone Make Third Loan Signing Of The Week

Maidstone United, who took Dean Beckwith and Ross Lafayette on loan from league rivals Sutton United yesterday, have now swooped to being former West Ham United winger Blair Turgott on loan from Boreham Wood for the rest of the season.

The 23-year-old began his career in the academy at West Ham and made his Hammers debut in January 2014 against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup.

The winger enjoyed a series of loan spells with the likes of Bradford City, Rotherham United and Colchester United and scored his first ever professional goal against Stevenage in December 2013 while on the loan at Colchester.

Turgott has represented England up to under-19 level, including fourteen appearances for the under-17s.

During his spell with the under-17s, he helped them to top their group in the FIFA Under-17 World Cup with a vital goal against Canada.

A short spell with Coventry City followed his time at West Ham, before he was snapped up by Leyton Orient in 2015.

He had a year-long spell with home-town side Bromley in 2016, netting an impressive 12 times from midfield.

His spell with Bromley – as well as a stint at Jamie Vardy`s V9 Academy, earned him a move to League Two Stevenage in June 2017.

He joined Wood on loan in September and played nine games, scoring 2 goals, so when in December, Stevenage cancelled his contract, Luke Garrard was swift to make him a permanent member of his squad.

To date this season, Turgott has made thirteen appearances and scored 3 goals.
