Blair Turgott becomes Maidstone United’s third signing of the week

Jay Saunders has added forward Blair Turgott to his Maidstone United squad on loan until the end of the season from Boreham Wood.

The struggling Stones are 13 games without a win in the league and Saunders has also signed striker Ross Lafayette and defender Dean Beckwith this week.

The winger initially joined Luke Garrard’s side on a short loan from Stevenage last September, making the move permanent just before Christmas.

His career started at West Ham Academy and he made his Hammers debut four years ago against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup. He also represented England up to under-19 level, including 14 appearances for the under-17s.

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

From there he had a year-long spell with hometown side Bromley in 2016, netting an impressive 12 times from midfield and earning an England C call-up. That form saw him make his move into the Football League with Stevenage.
