Dover midfielder moves to Longmead


Jordan Higgs heads to West Kent

Tonbridge Angels are delighted to welcome to the Halcyon Wealth Longmead Stadium our latest signing, Jordan Higgs, a 26 year-old central midfielder, who joins from Dover Athletic.

Jordan made 41 appearances for Dover last season, scoring six times, one of which being a stunning 30 yard strike against the Angels at the Crabble in August.

A graduate of Bromley’s Academy, Jordan spent six seasons at Hayes Lane, making 131 appearances (nine goals) including the 2018 FA Trophy Final in which he suffered the heartbreak of a Wembley defeat, on penalties, to Brackley Town.

Jordan left Bromley at the beginning of 2020/21 for Dulwich Hamlet where, over a two season spell, he made 44 appearances, scoring once.

Andy Hessenthaler brought Jordan to Dover last summer and he excelled in a struggling team throughout the season.

Jordan commented on his signing: “I’m delighted to have signed. I was impressed with Tonbridge when I played against them last season and I know Jay’s a good manager so I’m looking forward to playing under him. Hopefully I can help the team push on this coming season.”

Tommy Parkinson, delighted to have acquired Jordan’s signature for next season, added: “He is someone that we identified as a target early on and think he adds good experience and something different to what we had in our midfield last season.”
