Jordon Forster (born 23 September 1993)[1] is a Scottish footballer who currently plays as a defender for Hibernian. Forster has also previously played for Berwick Rangers and East Fife on loan.

Career[edit]

Forster was in the Celtic youth system, but moved to Hibernian in 2010 after he was advised by Celtic that he would be unlikely to earn a professional contract with them.[2][3] Hibs loaned Forster to Berwick Rangers during the second half of the 2011–12 season.[2] Forster and Hibs agreed a one-year contract in May 2012[2] and he was loaned to East Fife for the first part of the 2012–13 season.[4]

Manager Pat Fenlon said that younger players, including Forster, would feature more in the 2013–14 season.[5] Forster made his debut appearance for Hibs in a 2–1 win against Hearts on 12 May 2013.[6] Fenlon praised the way that Forster had dealt with the physical presence that Hearts had in their attacking line.[7] Forster also played in the 2013 Scottish Cup Final defeat by Celtic, replacing injured captain James McPake.[8] He signed a new one-year contract with Hibs in June 2013.[8] Six months later, Forster signed a contract with Hibs that is due to run until 2016.[9][10]
