Versatile defender joins cause
Chris Turner snapped up former Sheffield Wednesday defender Steve Haslam after he had been released by Bury. Haslam was seen as a reliable player who could fit in anywhere across the back or even in midfield. He was mostly used as cover during his time at the Vic, most often at right back in place of the injured Neil Austin.
