After seven productive and successful years with Bradford Park
Avenue, Bobby Turnbull took on a new challenge with Leeds at the
age of 29. He proved to be a sensation - scoring plenty of goals
and creating many more in 6 years at Elland Road. His only cap came
against Northern Ireland while he was with Bradford in 1920, and
with the skills he had at his disposal, it's hard to see why he
wasn't picked more often. He played professional football to the
age of 37, before returning to his native north-east.
