Jordan Joshua M. Chiedozie (born 1 August 1994) is a Nigerian-English footballer who plays for Chelmsford City as a forward.

Career[edit]

Born in Bournemouth, Chiedozie joined Bournemouth's youth system in 2007, aged 13. On 26 October 2012 he joined Dorchester Town in a one-month loan deal.[2]

Chiedozie only appeared in two league matches before returning to the Cherries. On 11 January 2013 he was loaned to Totton, also in a month's deal.[3] Chiedozie made an instant impact at the club, scoring one and assisting the other three goals in a 4–0 home routing over Kettering Town, being also named man of the match.[4] However, he picked up a knee injury in his 3rd game that ruled him out for the rest of his loan spell.

Chiedozie moved to Poole Town in another month's loan on 25 October 2013.[5] However, he only appeared in two FA Cup matches before returning to Bournemouth. On 10 January of the following year he rejoined Poole,[6] and appeared more regularly.

In February 2014 Chiedozie was released by the Cherries,[7] and joined Poole permanently shortly after.[8]

On 7 August 2014 Chiedozie signed with Concord Rangers.[9] After scoring seven goals in only 14 matches, he signed an 18-month deal with League Two side Cambridge United on 28 November.[10] He made his professional debut a day later, starting in a 2–1 away win against AFC Wimbledon.[11] In March 2015, he joined Conference Premier strugglers Dartford on loan until the end of the season.[12]

In December 2015 Chiedozie's contract with Cambridge United was terminated by mutual consent.[13]

As of 2016, Chiedozie signed for Boreham Wood.[14]

On 22 September 2016, Concord Rangers announced the re-signing of Chiedozie, following his release from Boreham Wood.[15]

On 21 July 2018, after a prolific spell at Margate, Chiedozie signed for Chelmsford City.[16]

Personal life[edit]

Chiedozie's father, John, was also a footballer. A winger, he was born in Nigeria but spent his whole career in England.[17]
