He started his career in his native South Africa at Pretoria City, before transferring to Manning Rangers where he won the golden boot during the 1997–98 Premier Soccer League season with 11 goals. In the 2003/2004 season, he also led with 8 goals.
Jordan then moved to New Zealand, intending to play for the New Zealand Knights in the newly formed Australian and New Zealand A-League. He was unsuccessful in this and signed with new New Zealand Football Championship team Waitakere United instead. In his first season with the club (2004/2005), he scored 15 goals in the 21 rounds, and earned the Golden Boot.
Illness and deathEdit
In 2008, after an unexplained three months on the sideline, Jordan announced that he had been suffering from cancer for three years. He had initially been worried that it would interfere with his application for permanent residency and New Zealand citizenship, but was treated and given the all-clear by doctors, and made his comeback in a 4–1 win against Canterbury United.
On 19 March 2010, Jordan announced his retirement from all levels of domestic and international football, citing ongoing knee injuries. Jordan had not played a full game since the 2009 Club World Cup, and he felt it the right time to retire, after what he conceded was an ultimately successful career.
