Jordan Stuart Connerton (born 2 October 1989) is an English footballer who plays as a striker for Kendal Town.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

He started his football career with Lancaster City at the age of just sixteen years of age playing in the Football Conference as Lancaster were relegated with just one point to their name. This was due to the club having to go into administration due to financial difficulties.

Soon after the end of the 2006-07 season after a bad injury, Jordan was then picked up by Chorley, scoring five goals in twelve appearances before moving to Kendal Town, under Lee Ashcroft, scoring on his debut in a 2-2 draw in his only game for them.[3] Similar to his spell at Chorley, he was hampered by injuries and he returned to Lancaster City in the summer of 2009.

Crewe Alexandra[edit]

After a superb season in which he had scored 30 goals by Christmas, he was signed on a three-year contract by Crewe Alexandra for a fee believed to be in the region of £35,000. Indeed there had been interest from several clubs including Morecambe, Swindon Town, Derby County, Preston North End, Rochdale, Grimsby Town, Leeds United, Celtic and Motherwell. In fact a move to Motherwell loooked the more likely with a deal more or less finalised until manager Jim Gannon left the club. After signing for Crewe he was however loaned back to Lancaster City for the remainder of the season in order to help them with their promotion push.

Made his Crewe Alexandra debut as a substitute, replacing Matt Tootle just before half time in the 2nd round League Cup defeat to Ipswich Town.

Jordan went on loan to Nantwich Town and scored nine goals in twelve appearances before returning to Crewe. He the made his League debut for Crewe in their home game against Cheltenham Town. At the end of the English 2010–11 season, he was loaned to Icelandic club ÍBV, along with midfielder Kelvin Mellor, until July 2011 although returned home early due to injury.[4]

Had a loan spell at Kendal scoring five times in eight games before returning to Crewe.

He joined Workington on loan in March 2012 and scored on his debut against Solihull Moors

For the 2012-13 season, Jordan signed for Conference North league club Workington F.C. although only played a dozen games due to injury.

Jordan returned for a third spell with Kendal Town at the start of the 2013-14 season but moved on after just four months to return to hometown club Lancaster City in November 2013.

Personal and early life[edit]

Connerton was born and educated in Lancaster, Lancashire, before he enrolled at Myerscough College near Garstang.[5]
