Biographical Text

Jordan Moore-Taylor, a graduate of the Exeter City academy having earlier played for Stoke Hill in local age-group football, made his first-team debut aged eighteen. After more than 180 first-team games he left for MK Dons in 2018.

Jordan, known for his tough-tackling approach to the game, made his first-team debut in the league against Bolton on 1 September 2012 and played eight times in his first season. He followed this with over thirty league and cup appearances in 2013/14 when he also scored his first goal for City against Cheltenham in April 2014. Missing part of 2014/15 because of injury, Jordan played more regularly in 2015/16 when he took over the captaincy and won the ExEC-100 Club player-of-the-season award. 

2016/17, Jordan’s first full-season with the armband, saw him guide the Grecians to a fifth-placed finish and the League Two play-off final as City kept fourteen clean sheets. Jordan also scored five goals as he won the Grecian Travel away-player-of-the-year award. He suffered various injuries in 2017/18 but still managed to clock-up thirty-odd league and cup appearances as City reached another Wembley play-off final.

With manager Paul Tisdale leaving for MK Dons, Jordan became one of his first signings in June 2018. But, after making thirty-seven league appearances over two injury-hit seasons,  Jordan was released by MK Dons at the end of the 2019/2000 season. He then signed for Forest Green Rovers on a two-year deal soon agreeing an extension through to June 2023.

Jordan made forty league appearances during 2021/22 as his club pipped Exeter City to the League Two championship and, although he only made thirteen League One appearances in 2022/23, he eventually agreed a new contract in July 2003. Playing for a team that was relegated from the Football League, Jordan made a total of 36 league and cup appearances during 2023/24 to bring his senior career total to 352 matches in all competitions.
