Returning Wisbech Town ‘keeper Jordan: ‘I’m coming back to win the league’
DETERMINED goalkeeper Lea Jordan says he is returning to Wisbech Town to help them win the league.
The 26-year-old admitted he was delighted to have agreed a return to the Elgood’s Fenland Stadium - and insisted he had never wanted to leave.
Work commitments forced Jordan to swap Wisbech for rivals March Town United in June last year. He also played for Soham Town Rangers and Yaxley last season.
Jordan said: “I sort of fell out with the game last season. I got to the stage where I didn’t really want to play.
“Now I can’t wait to get back into it for Wisbech. I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. My first thought has always been Wisbech.
“I never wanted to leave in the first place because it’s such a good club.
“I’ve come back because I want to win the league and I wouldn’t want to do it with anyone else.”

Jordan said the club’s “amazing” fanbase and the respect he has for manager Steve Appleby had also played a big part in his decision to return.
“Apps has got a presence about him,” he said. “He’s a top manager.
“Everyone knows that when he steps into the changing room, you’re quiet and you listen to him. He’s very well respected.
“The fans are amazing as well. They have always had that mentality of ‘this is our hometown club and we will support it’.
“You’ve got King’s Lynn Town and Peterborough United up the road but they don’t want to know. They will stick by Wisbech.”
The Thurlow Nunn Premier Division will kick-off on August 4.
Jordan said: “It would be brilliant to win it. I can’t see any reason why we shouldn’t do that - it’s there for the taking.”
