John Turner (born 12 February 1986) is an English footballer, born in Harrow, who played in the Football League as a forward for Cambridge United and Rushden & Diamonds. He currently plays for Corby Town.

Turner joined Cambridge United's youth scheme as a 16-year-old, after leaving Aston Villa's youth academy. Still only 17, he made a dream debut on 12 April 2003 in the League Two match against Exeter City: entering the game as a 76th-minute substitute, he scored the winning goal in the fourth minute of stoppage time. He scored a hat-trick in November 2004 in League Two against Rushden & Diamonds to give Cambridge United a 3 1 victory. In late 2005 he spent a month on loan at Aldershot in an attempt to recover his goalscoring form, and joined Rushden & Diamonds on loan in January 2006. Despite being knocked unconscious during his first appearance, three days later he signed a permanent contract until the end of the 2005 06 season, at which point he was offered another deal but preferred to join Grays Athletic. Grays loaned him out to Conference South sides Braintree and Bishop's Stortford before releasing him at the end of the 2006 07 season when he joined King's Lynn. In January 2009, he left the club by mutual consent and signed for Corby Town, with whom he won promotion to the Conference North in 2009.
