Clark: Win was for Jordan

29 October 2017

Jordan Clark dedicated Stanley's 4-1 win over Barnet to Jordan Moseley with the Academy player's family and friends at the game.

Jordan, 15, died suddenly 11 days ago and, in the first home game at the Wham Stadium since his death, there was a tribute and a celebration of his life.

Clark was delighted that Stanley hit Barnet for four for Jordan and his family and friends.

“We have still not got over what's happened to Jordan and our thoughts are with his family and friends,” said the winger.

“It was a big occasion for us and the pressure was on us to perform for him and you could see how much it meant with the goal celebrations. The win meant a lot to the players and to the fans and it was nice to get the win for him. We wanted to win for him.”

Clark has got three in three games with Sean McConville, Billy Kee and Kayden Jackson sharing the goals against the Bees.

“I am trying to get into the box more, I am trying to get on the end of crosses and every time I get into the box now, I feel like I am going to score.

“I am linking up with the strikers better and showing composure to finish and confidence is sky high.

“Billy and Kayden have been on fire this season and it's down to everyone else to chip in with goals and help them out and thankfully I now have.”

Clark revealed Stanley had been training all week on a passing game which came off perfectly against the Bees.

“We passed it well from the start yesterday which is what the coaching staff wanted us to do. They hadn't been happy as they felt we had been going quite long in last couple of games so we had worked on it in training.

“We played it out from the back, from Chappy in goal, and I think the first goal settled us and we moved on from there.”

Clark is now aiming for Stanley to carry on playing well and staying in the automatic promotion spots.

“A couple of teams, after we have played them, even Stevenage when we lost, they have said we are the best team they have played so it always nice to hear but you have got keep your feet on the ground and carry on working hard in training.

“We will take second place but it is just a start and we have to keep going and keep improving.”
