Boreham Wood Football club are delighted to announce the arrival of former Wood ‘keeper Michael Jordan as our new goalkeeping coach.
The 32-year-old left Ebbsfleet United in November 2018, following two years with our National League rivals.
Jordan came through the ranks at Arsenal and enjoyed international recognition with England Under 17s and 19s.
He featured on the bench for the Gunners in the league cup, before joining Chesterfield in 2006, via a loan spell with Yeovil Town.
The stopper then moved to the Conference South with Lewes in search of permanent first team football and enjoyed huge success, helping them to the league title and promotion into the then named Conference National.
Jordan later spent time with Eastbourne Borough, before an 18-month stint with Farnborough, where he featured 64 times.
He finished his career with spells here at Meadow Park and at Concord Rangers, before joining Ebbsfleet United as a goalkeeping coach in 2016.
Jordan said: “Luke called me during the week and I’ve known him for a long time. We’ve played together since we were schoolboys and have always kept in contact over the years.
“I left Ebbsfleet United at the back end of last year and Luke asked whether I was free and wanted to come down. It’s a good opportunity for me to work at this club.
“I’m a Hertfordshire boy so I know the area quite well. I played here myself and got some games here. I think that was when Luke was just starting out as assistant manager, so I now this club well.
“I know Luke runs a good camp here, so it was a bit of a no brainer for me really. I was excited to get in here and get into the first training session.”
