Daily quiz: Name the former Argyle player who played for the Algeria under-20 national team?
Argyle Old Boys: Robbie Turner – the big targetman was already a journeyman footballer before signing for Argyle for £110,000 in the summer of 1990. Robbie started his career at Huddersfield Town and played for Cardiff City, Hartlepool United, Bristol Rovers, Wimbledon and Bristol City before arriving at Home Park.
Robbie gained a reputation as a physical frontman, especially at set-piece and long throw-in situations and he would wear protective covering on his elbows although some would say this was to protect the heads of opposition defenders!
After a very public fallout with new manager Peter Shilton Robbie was sold to Notts County for £90,000 in November 1992. He made a total of 77 appearances for Argyle (all starts) and scored 19 goals.
After Notts County he played for Shrewsbury Town, Exeter City, Cambridge United and Hull City; after retiring from professional football Robbie settled in the south-west and played for Taunton Town and Newton Abbot and started a plumbing and heating business in Newton Abbot. Robbie celebrates his 54th birthday today.
