Biography

Jordan joined the Dons ahead of the 2016 season from Super League side Castleford Tigers.  He signed professional terms with the West Yorkshire side in 2012 but didn’t make a first team appearance with the Mend-A-Hose Jungle outfit and spent last season on loan with York City Knights.  In North Yorkshire he thrived at stand-off, helping them finish fourth in League 1.  In the play-offs York came seconds away from beating Grand Final winners Swinton Lions in the play-off semi final thanks to a late drop goal from Howden, only for Swinton to equalise with 12 second remaining before going on to win in extra time.  Head coach Gary Thornton saw Howden come through the ranks at Castleford during his time coaching there and he will be looking to get the best out of the new recruit in 2016.
