John "Jack" Gordon was a leading professional footballer of the 1880s and 1890s. He was a member of the Preston North End side which became famous as the 'Invincibles'.
Jack Gordon was born at Port Glasgow, Scotland in 1863. He was one of the many Scottish-born footballers who joined Preston North End in the mid-1880s as the Lancashire club assembled a side that was almost unbeatable. He was in the Preston side that were 1887-88 FA Cup Finalists, and the following season he was in the Preston side that did the double, being Football League Champions and 1888-89 FA Cup Winners. He continued to play for Preston until 1895, and later had short spells with Loughborough and Wigan County.
