New Signing – Welcome, Jordan Watson!

We are delighted to confirm our first summer signing as defender Jordan Watson puts pen to paper on a contract at Grounsell Park!

Jordan joins the Stan from Blyth Spartans where he made 19 appearances last season. He made 170 appearances for Spartans over two periods at the Club. He has also had two spells at Darlington FC and is capped for Northern Ireland U20s.

He joined the Stan briefly on loan towards the end of last season and his permanent move is a major statement of intent for the Stan as we prepare for our first season in Northern League Division 1.

On the move to the Stan, Jordan said:

“It was clear to me from the short period of time I was here last year, what a special club this is. Dean, Andy and the lads made me enjoy football again for the first time in a while. It’s clear this club, the volunteers, fans and the community here have something very special building.

To play a small part in promotion last year was a great experience. To be able to come back here and be part of the next chapter is something I am very excited for.”

A big welcome to the Stan, Jordan!
