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.

Jordan spent the first half of the 2017-18 season at Chesterfield before being involved in a road traffic accident which ended his campaign.

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.

The following season saw Flores return to League Two with Chesterfield under his former boss Gary Caldwell, where he scored once in 15 appearances before injury curtailed a season which ended with a brief loan stay at AFC Fylde.
