Staff Biography

George Jordan (Right back, 1938-40) – George Jordan was a product of Kilbirnie Ladeside who Cowdenbeath signed in January 1938. Jordan wore his hair slicked back with a centre parting and cut a distinctive figure on the park. He soon became regarded as one of Cowdenbeath's finest ever full backs. Jordan was two footed and had the ability to get out of tight corners in uncanny fashion. Arsenal soon desired Jordan's signature and made overtures in the close season of 1938. A massive 8,000 fee was offered but Jordan wished to play for no one but Cowdenbeath. George remained at Central Park to share in the 1938/39 title success. In 1940, when Cowden closed down for the War, he joined the Army. Private George Jordan of the 7th Battalion, the Black Watch was killed on active service in North West France on Saturday 8 July 1944. He is buried in the Ranville War Cemetery, Calvados. He was only 27 years of age.
