Hawthorn selected Turvey in the 1996 AFL Draft from South Fremantle in the West Australian Football League (WAFL) with the 29th overall selection. He only played three games for Hawthorn in his first season due to finger tendon injuries.[1] After only seven more games in 1999, the long-kicking left footer[2] was delisted by Hawthorn prior to the 2000 season.[3]

After a year in South Australia playing for South Adelaide, Turvey then returned to Western Australian where he continued to play for South Fremantle until 2003.[4] He is also a highly rated harness racing trainer and driver,[5] based in Narrogin, Western Australia.[6]
