Who Is Sheffield Wednesday Youth Todd Jordan?
Ex-Sheffield Wednesday youth Todd Jordan has joined another ex-Owl Vadaine Oliver at Lincoln City. Todd made his début alongside his former colleague who is going from strength to strength at the Imps. Oliver headed the Imps level at Woking and has bravely played through a knee injury and a lot of upheaval behind the scenes. STMI have been raving about young Oliver ever since he came on as a sub against Grimsby in the Lincs Cup to earn a contract at the Imp. But then Todd and Vadaine are both quality players with plenty of heart.
Even though young Oliver is clearly a contender for young player of the year at City, Todd Jordan also has plenty about him, as well as the ability coupled with the necessary mental strength, to take this opportunity to reignite his career. After failing to earn a first year pro deal at Hillsborough he moved to Parkgate in the North East Premier League. Simmo, a lifelong Wednesday fan, brought him in and nurtured him and feels the gamble on the lad to be a good one. Few can argue given his eye for talent. STMI saw him star as a centre-half in a 2-3 thriller against Staveley, who promptly signed him. Todd can also play centre-midfield and , at 6′ 3″, he is not easily fazed despite being 21.
Todd joins initially on non-contract terms, but had to sit things out on the bench. Clearly he will have to get fit and acclimatise to the BSP. The Imps will get strength energy and not too bad a left foot either, judging by his long-ball deliveries in the game we saw. Good luck Todd and keep it up Vadaine STMI’s vote for Young Imp of the season!
A friend has put a site up helping people to find casual cash work. In today’s climate there are lots of people around locally with good skills and extra time on their hands, but finding paid work to help with a little extra like next years season ticket is hard for many of us. No pressure, we dont do plugs but it seemed a good idea.
