Huddersfield centre Jordan Turner has been granted a testimonial year in 2021.

The 31-year-old has made more than 300 career appearances for Salford, Hull FC, St Helens and Huddersfield.

Turner is preparing to tie in Jamaica’s involvement in next year’s World Cup as part of his plans as well as having a testimonial match.

He said: “It means a lot to me really.

“I’ve not spent 10 years at one club but I’d like to think I’ve given a lot of service to the game. I debuted at 17 and I’m 31 now, so to be granted one is a massive honour and to have a bit of recognition for my services is something I’m proud of. To have a match dedicated to my career is a real honour.

“I’ll be doing the majority of regular things, an opening dinner, and a couple of fan forums. I’m hoping to have some social media raffles and loads of different things.

“But I’m quite excited about the end of the testimonial which coincides with the World Cup. I’ve spoken to Alex Simmons who is the general manager of Jamaica and we’ve discussed having a closing party linked with an opening party for Jamaica’s World Cup campaign, which would be something a bit different.”
