Turner's all-round Swans game continues to grow

Saturday, August 10, 2019 - 8:35 AM - by Chris Pike

FRESH off kicking the winning goal for Swan Districts against the West Coast Eagles, Jesse Turner has enjoyed the chance in 2019 to spend more time as an inside midfielder and to take on more of a leadership role as his all-round game continues to develop.

Turner is one player whose role is becoming of increasing importance at Swan Districts with the black-and-whites still possessing a strong group of senior, experienced players and exciting youngsters, but it's in that middle tier that they are somewhat lacking.

While players like Tony Notte, George Hampson, Matt Riggio, Alex Howard and Steven Payne continue to lead from the front, and youngsters Denzel More, Josh Cipro, Tristen Raynor, Jiah Reidy, Lachlan Riley, Aidan Clarke, Jackson Beck, Callum Garcia, Seb Bright, Dylan Smith, Brayden Hackett and Nathan Ireland are exciting future prospects, Swans' growth must come from players like Turner.
