Biographical Text

Mike Jordan, a former apprentice, made eighteen league appearances for Exeter City in the mid-1970s before suffering an injury and moving on to play for Bideford, Tiverton and Dawlish.

Signing as a full professional in July 1975, Mike had been on the books at Exeter for the previous eighteen months having previously played for Clyst Valley.

He made his league debut as a substitute in the fourth game of the season at Workington on 6 September 1975 but had to wait until January 1976 for his next appearance when - starting the game - he scored the only goal in the 1-0 win at  Cambridge United. 

Retaining his place for the next five league games, Mike finished the season having started ten league games with further strikes against Reading and Brentford. He was  subsequently in the starting line-up for the opening game of the ultimately highly-successful 1976/77 season but was only to total another five league starts (plus two substitute appearances) before leaving St James’ Park at the end of the season to join Bideford.

Later turning out for Tiverton Town and Dawlish Town, Mike eventually moved into the management side of the game in the Exeter area.
