Wisbech Town goalkeeper Jordan announces shock switch to March Town United
GOALKEEPER Lea Jordan has announced his intention to make a sensational switch from Wisbech Town to neighbours March Town United.
Reliable shot-stopper Jordan issued a statement on the Fenmen’s fans forum last night, saying work commitments and fewer midweek games had played a large part in his decision to leave the Fenland Stadium.
It is another huge blow to Steve Appleby’s side - after Callum Reed and captain Paul Cousins defected to fierce rivals King’s Lynn Town just weeks after winning the Ridgeons Challenge Cup with the Fenmen.
But Jordan’s announcement will be a huge boost to Ridgeons First Division March, who play at Step 6 of the non-league ladder - one level lower than Wisbech.
The 25-year-old ‘keeper played for new Hares boss Brett Whaley at Peterborough Premier League Side Ramsey Town before joining Wisbech.

In a statement released on Wisbech’s forum last night, Jordan said: “I just wanted to say that I’ll be playing for March next season. I didn’t want to but work commitments played their part.
“I would like to thank everybody for their support and for welcoming me to the club. I wish Apps and the boys all the best. I’m sure with the great support the club have they will go far.
