Little by name, big in stature

It is fair to say that Jordan Little never really established himself in the Workington defence during the two Covid interrupted seasons, simply because he wasn’t given the chance to do so.

But, on returning to the club for a second spell just before Christmas, he took over the number four shirt and enjoyed his best run in the team to date.  In an ever-changing defence, where personnel were coming and going at an alarming rate, Reds finally came across a partnership (Jordan and Sam Smith) that took to the field on a regular basis. 

And when offered the chance to return to Borough Park next season to further his career, Jordan needed very little persuasion to commit to a fourth campaign with the club.

Staying was a no brainer really. I’m a local lad wanting to play at the highest standard possible and I’m looking forward to a fresh start with the new manager coming – I can’t wait to get going.

He had never let the team down in any of his fleeting appearances under Danny Grainger but game time was limited, until he became a regular throughout the second half of last term.

Jordan, 28, is now keen to establish himself under Mark Fell’s management and forge a new partnership at the heart of Reds’ backline, adding to his 26 starts for the club to date.

Jordan’s experience of the NPL last season will stand him in good stead this time around, and he’s another local player that understands the value of the club to the town and the importance of us representing it properly. Jordan’s a bit of a throwback in terms of a defender and I like that, he’s brave, strong and enjoys defending.

Mark Fell commented on his latest player retainment.
