Millie Turner is an English footballer who plays for Manchester United in the FA Women’s Championship as a defender.
Millie grew up in Wilmslow with older brother Bruce and younger brother Jake, now a professional goalkeeper with Bolton Wanderers. At the age of 10, she began playing with Stockport County before moving to Manchester City and then Crewe Alexandra’s highly regarded youth setup.
When Crewe’s Centre of Excellence folded she drew offers from both Merseyside giants Liverpool and Everton but turned them down in favor of Manchester United.
Turner joined Everton midway through the 2013 season and linked up with the development squad. She signed her first senior contract ahead of the 2014 season and made her league debut in a 2–0 defeat to Notts County on 20 April.
She made a further five league appearances in her inaugural season, as well as two appearances in the FA WSL Cup. On 1 June, Turner featured in the Women’s FA Cup Final as Everton lost 2–0 to Arsenal at Stadium MK.
In January 2017, Turner joined Bristol City ahead of the FA WSL Spring Series. She made her debut in a 3–1 defeat to Reading on 22 April and went on to play in a further seven games that season.
Turner was named captain ahead of the 2017–18 FA WSL campaign and scored her first goal for the club in a 2–1 loss to Chelsea in the FA WSL Cup on 4 November. She scored her first league goal in a 6–1 defeat to Manchester City on 3 May 2018.
On 1 July 2018, Turner joined the newly-formed Manchester United to compete in the FA Women’s Championship, reuniting with manager Willie Kirk who had been appointed assistant manager at United. She was one of seven players to return to the senior side having played for the club at youth level.
She made her debut for the club in a 1–0 FA WSL Cup win over Liverpool on 19 August, and her league debut three weeks later in a 12–0 victory at Aston Villa. On 23 September, Turner scored her first goal for the club during a 5–0 win against London Bees.
