Date of birth
Skillful Wigan-born left sided player who has come through the club’s academy system.
Flores’ agreed a new two year deal in June 2017 following a successful loan spell at Blackpool during the second half of 2016-17.
‘He’s one of our own’ is the chant from the stands where Jordan was a season-ticket holder with his family and in his case it really does ring true.
A classy left-sided player who can operate in a number of positions, he has played as a wing-back, left back or as a wide midfielder, although his strongest position is arguably as a creative central midfielder.
CAREER SO FAR
From Aspull, four miles from the DW Stadium, he was with Latics as a young boy, then returned to the club aged 15 and progressed from there to be offered professional terms, making his league debut on the final day of the 2014-15 season.
He scored his first goal for the club in his first start, a sweet volley against Fleetwood Town in October 2015, which went on to be voted as goal of the season.
He suffered a setback when he was sent off at Oldham Athletic the following week and learned a harsh lesson after losing his place in the team, having to wait over a year to make his next league appearance, as a late substitute at Derby County in the Sky Bet Championship on New Year’s Eve 2016.
He was loaned to Blackpool in January 2017 and ‘came of age’ as a first team player at Bloomfield Road, making 21 appearances for the Tangerines as they were promoted back to Sky Bet League One via the play-offs, coming off the bench at Wembley in the 2-1 final victory over Exeter City.
He scored his first goal for Blackpool in a 4-1 demolition of Carlisle United and notched two more goals, including a 90th minute penalty to win at then leaders Doncaster Rovers.
