Jordan Leon Chidubem Gibbons (born 18 November 1993) is an English footballer who plays as a defender for Whitehawk in the National League South.

Club career[edit]

A product of Queens Park Rangers youth academy he was given professional contract in 2011. On 23 August 2011 he was an unused substitute against Rochdale.[2] On 29 January 2013, Scottish Premier League team Inverness Caledonian Thistle signed him on loan until the end of the season. His signing to the club was followed by Charlie Taylor's loan arrival from Leeds United.[3] In the next day he made his league debut against St Mirren in a 2–1 loss coming as an 89th-minute substitute for Aaron Doran.[4]

Following his release from QPR, Gibbons signed for League Two side Yeovil Town on a one-year contract ahead of the 2015–16 season.[5] He was released at the end of the 2015–16 season.[6] Having been released by Yeovil, Gibbons called time on his professional football career having struggled with injury.[7]

In November 2016, it was announced that Gibbons would return to football to join Isthmian League Premier Division side Wingate & Finchley.[8] On 19 November 2016, Gibbons made his Wingate & Finchley debut in a 4–1 victory against Canvey Island, replacing Ola Williams in the 39th minute.[9]

On 28 April 2017, after a spell with Kingstonian, Gibbons joined recently-founded American side Phoenix Rising.[10]

In March 2018 Gibbons signed for Brighton-based National League South side Whitehawk.[11]
