Turton FC play their home games at the Thomason Fold Ground in the village of Edgworth. The club's colours are white and navy blue shirts and navy blue shorts. They do not produce a programme for their home games.
Turton is a club with an extremely proud football history. The original Turton FC was formed in 1871, and in the early 1870's they were arguably the leading club in Lancashire. In 1878 they were one of the prime movers in the formation of the Lancashire Football Association, and in 1879-80 they were one of the entrants in the first Lancashire Cup competition.
With the rise of professional football in the mid-1880's, Turton were soon no longer a force in the game. However they remained a much respected club, and in 1899-1900, 1901-02, 1902-03, and 1904-05 were winners of the Lancashire Junior Cup, while in 1912-13 they were winners of the Lancashire Amateur Shield. Unfortunately on two separate occasions the club has folded and then been inactive for a lengthy period.
The current Turton FC's ground at Edgworth is about a mile away from the original Turton FC's ground in Chapeltown. This old ground is still in use, with Lancashire Amateur League team Old Boltonians having been the residents for over 50 years. This ground is possibly the oldest remaining football ground in the World.
They are now managed by Neil Hart who is in his 2nd stint of managing the club.
