Tigers - the world's fourth oldest football team - are on solid ground following a public appeal earlier this year to raise £30K to save the club and subsequent takeover by Sandy Lane lease owner Pete Whitehead.

And Jordan is looking forward to forging ahead with his pre-season plans when clubs are given the green light to make a return to training following the global coronavirus pandemic, which brought a halt to the 2019/20 campaign.

"I'm hoping people buy into it," Jordan told the Guardian.

"It's going to be a little bit different for us next season.

"I've been asking a lot of the players over the past few months with the wage cuts.

"A lot of time goes into it and it takes a lot of commitments, especially at a club like Worksop.

"But the roles will reverse.

"We're hoping we're going to be an attractive proposition for players with the new ownership.

"We're really looking to kick on so we're hoping to be an attractive proposition for players who want to come in and if the current boys want to be a part of it then they're going to have to put that time and effort in.

"That's football, that's the way it's always been and I'm hoping everyone buys into it over the summer."

This pre-season will be Jordan's first as a manager and he can't wait to get started.

"I really love pre-season," he added.

"I always get myself as fit as I can over the summer.

"I enjoy going out running at home in my spare time."I always look forward to when the new boys come in and everyone gets to know each other, without that added pressure of the league games which come later.

"I've got our summer already planned out and now it's just a case of when we get the green light from the powers that be to start going again."
