Brian Turner, who died on December 27, aged 77, played in only two first class matches for Yorkshire but he was from a family with strong links to the White Rose county and he retained a keen interest in the Club and its former players.
Born in Sheffield on July 25, 1938, Brian was a left-hand bat and right-arm medium fast bowler.
He made his Yorkshire debut against the South Africans at Bramall Lane in 1960 and the following season he played in the match against Gloucestershire at Bristol. Although he scored only seven runs in his four innings he captured four wickets at an average of 11.75 and held two catches.
During 1961 he informed Yorkshire that he would be unavailable for any further matches because he was studying engineering and he went on to become a senior lecturer and head of mechanical science at Rotherham Technical College
