Ashton Turner

Ashton is the professional recruit from down under for the 2016 season.  An Australian cricketer who debuted for Western Australia during the 2012–13 season, and is also contracted to the Perth Scorchers. From Perth, Turner represented Western Australia at under-15 (schoolboys), under-17 and under-19 level and captained the under-17 team to their National Championships win.  At the 2012 Under-19 World Cup, he was Australia's first-choice spinner and took eleven wickets from six matches, since then he has developed into a batting all rounder and now represents Western Australia on a regular basis in all formats.

As part of a development program organised by Cricket Australia and Hampshire County Cricket Club, six players were selected to spend the 2013 Australian winter playing for English club teams, with Turner playing for Chichester Priory Park in the Sussex Cricket League.  The players also spent time training with the Australian national cricket team during the ongoing Ashes series.  While in England, during the summer Turner was selected to make his first-class debut in July 2013 in a tour match for the Australians against Sussex

Ashton captains Freemantle CC at first grade level in Western Australia Premier league cricket and he comes highly recommended from former professionals and we are all looking forward to his arrival. (AS,03/16)

Ashton is being sponsored by Chris Ashworth in memory of his late father Maurice for the 2016 season.
