Jordan's story:

Former captain Jordan Moore-Taylor is a graduate of the Exeter City Academy having been spotted playing for Stoke Hill in the local Devon league as a youngster.

The left-footed defender his known for his strong, tough tackling approach to the game and made eight appearances for the club in 2012/13 campaign – his first season as professional at St James Park.

His impressive performances, at either left-back or centre-half, have seen Jordan chalk up well over 100 appearances for the Grecians in the last four seasons despite some injuries hampering his progress.

His first goal in a City shirt came in April 2014 when he headed home the opener in the Grecians 1-1 draw with Cheltenham.

Jordan took over the captaincy midway through the 2015/16 season and would conclude a strong personal campaign by taking home the ExEC-100 Club player-of-the-season award.

Jordan’s first full season with the armband saw him guide the Grecians to a fifth-placed finish and the League Two play-off final, whilst marshaling a defence that recorded 14 clean sheets in the 2016/17 campaign.

It was also his most prolific season to date, with him contributing five goals over the course of the season. Jordan’s performances saw him pick up the Grecian Travel away-player-of-the-year award.

The 2017/18 campaign saw Jordan play 31 times, helping himself to three goals as City went to Wembley once again. As the Grecians fell at the final hurdle, Jordan opted to depart St James Park as he moved to MK Dons to link up with manager Paul Tisdale.
