Ben Gordon Signs For The Holy Blues

Ben Gordon Signs For The Holy Blues

Dave Frecklington has bolstered his defence options with the signing of Ben Gordon ahead of the club’s trip to Spennymoor Town in the Vanarama National League North tomorrow afternoon. Twenty-six year old full back, Gordon started his career as a youth at Leeds United, where he gained international recognition, appearing for England at Schoolboy level, up to u20 whilst at current Premier League Champions, Chelsea. During his time at Chelsea, he went out on loan a number of times to clubs of the calibre of Scunthorpe, Peterborough and Birmingham City.

Following his release from Stamford Bridge, the energetic full back spent time at Yeovil and Colchester in the football league, before dropping into the non-league game, where he played for the likes of Chester, Bradford Park Avenue, Woking and Lincolnshire neighbours, Boston United, where he made more than twenty appearances, scoring one goal (in a 3-1 victory over Curzon). It was in fact the Pilgrims who were Ben’s last club, having been unattached since his departure from the Jakeman’s Stadium at the end of last season.

Of his latest signing, Trinity boss Dave Frecklington said, "Ben has been training with us now for a good week or so, he's a player we like and someone we wanted to bring to the club. He has good experience, along with a fantastic pedigree and also has a good know how, which we sometimes lack a little bit of. He is working towards getting fit but we are delighted to get the deal over the line in time for tomorrow’s game with Spennymoor."

With the deal complete and confirmation back from the relevant parties, Gordon is ready to make the trip up the A1 with his team mates tomorrow. Welcome to the club Ben, we are looking forward to seeing you in the blue of Gainsborough Trinity. May your stay with us be a long, happy and successful one.
