You have to feel for his family and anyone close to him as various stories and rumours were going about online throughout the day, but Matlock Town have just released a statement to confirm that their player has passed away:

They confirm that he was found with life threatening injuries last night and had to be placed on a life-support machine, but he’s since passed away.

The club have issued some moving tributes throughout the evening to pay tribute to him and to highlight some of his best moments. It’s only right that he’s remembered for all the joy and great times he brought to Matlock, so you can see a couple of those here:

In terms of the incident, the Police issued a statement earlier and anyone who can help them at all can find details here.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Jordan’s family and friends at this time.
