Dungannon Swifts are proud to announce the loan signing of Jordan Jenkins from Glentoran FC until the end of the season.

Although Jordan is only 22 years of age, he brings with him the experience of over 100 appearances across spells at Carrick Rangers, Portadown, Glentoran and, a successful period, at Glenavon where he played in several Europa League qualifiers. Jordan also turned out for the Northern Ireland U19’s and has an international goal at that level.

Swifts fans can expect hard work, determination and a willingness to press opposition back lines, which makes Jenkins an ideal candidate to lead the line in the high pressing Dean Shiels’ system. Jenkins is also prone to drop deeper when his side needs support in the defensive phases of the game, operating in the space between the opposition defence and midfield and help trigger the press for the side. In attacking transitions, Jenkins likes to play on the shoulder of the last defender, using his pace and control to make goal scoring opportunities for himself or team mates.

Jordan has the opportunity to take the field against Knockbreda FC this coming Saturday in the Irish Cup, only a stones throw away from where he grew up. Your first opportunity to support him at Stangmore Park this season will be in the Mid Ulster Cup final on Tuesday the 7th of February.

Welcome to Stangmore Park, JJ.
