Wisbech keeper Jordan to leave the Fenmen
Wisbech keeper Lea Jordan has announced his intention to make a sensational switch to Ridgeons neighbours March Town United.
Reliable shot-stopper Jordan issued a statement on the Fenmen's fans forum Wednesday 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 League Cup with the Fenmen.
But Jordan's announcement will be a huge boost to Ridgeons First Division March, who play at step six 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.
'I just wanted to say that I'll be playing for March next season,' said Jordan in a statement released on Wisbech's forum. '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.
'I'd like to think I'd be welcome back and hope to play again one day. All the best and Up The Fenmen.'
