The 22-year-old had joined the Glovers in June 2021 from National League rivals Notts County, where he had been since January 2021.

 

He arrived at the Magpies following the expiration of his contract with then-League Two side Oldham Athletic, for whom he made 17 appearances – plus another 7 in cup competitions - after joining the Latics on a short-term deal in September.

 

He represented Sheffield Wednesday and Barnsley as a youngster before his performances for home-town club Penistone Church in the Toolstation Northern Counties East League side earned him a second-year scholarship with Burnley in 2017.

 

A further spell with Barnsley was to follow before he impressed in non-League football once more – this time with NPL Division One East outfit Pontefract Collieries - to earn his move to Oldham.

 

Matlock manager Paul Phillips told https://www.matlocktownfc.co.uk: “It’s a massive coup and it shows our intent.

 

“He played 37 National League games for Yeovil last season, and we’re delighted to have him on board. I’m grateful to Simon Heaton at New Mills who I know well and is a good friend of Jordan’s. He put me on to Jordan who has had other clubs after him further up the pyramid. But he came down and played the other night against Sheffield and wants to be part of it here. He’s a proper player as we saw on Tuesday, he can also play in two or three positions so it’s a great signing for us”.
