Darlington have re-signed defender Jordan Watson.

Watson previously played for Darlo during the 2016/17 National League North season. Having been signed in the summer of 2016 by Martin Gray, he made ten appearances before moving back to Blyth in February 2017.

Watson started his career at Sunderland before moving to Blyth, where he had a very successful spell, being part of the team that reached the third round of the FA Cup in 2015. Upon his return to Blyth he helped them win the Evo-Stik Premier title, which saw them promoted into the National North.

Manager Alun Armstrong said: “Jordan is one of the mentally toughest lads I’ve ever met. To continue to play and perform at the standard he does after his three cruciate knee injuries is a credit to himself and tells you all you need to know about the lad.

“He gives us competition on the left hand side either as a fullback or a centre half where he was outstanding for me up at Blyth.”
