At Club Since: N/A (Academy Graduate)
Total Club League Appearances (Goals): 106(3) *
After over 100 league appearances for the club, it still feels like we’re still to find out what Jordan Willis is best at. Injuries have held back his progress over the past few years, but his versatility between playing right-back and centre-back have further added to his inability to get a settled run in the starting line-up. Willis can cover either position adequately, and has put in some excellent performances at times, but has never quite mastered either spot in the team.
Willis is a player who should be far too good for League Two football, and provided he stays and can avoid a prolonged injury, this coming season should be the one where we see him settle on a preferred position in the team. Given the physicality of the division we’re entering into, it seems likely that Willis will be deployed more often at right-back, although he may be more at home as the right-sided centre-back in back three.
