Peterborough trial for Glentoran starlet

Published

on

Glentoran kid Jordan Stewart is off on trial to Peterborough United next week, according to the Belfast Newsletter.

The 18-year-old has been on the radar of the London Road club for some time and will go under the microscope of Posh manager Darren Ferguson when the Irish League season ends on Saturday.

Stewart harden his bid to land a full-time contract by scoring in Tuesday’s Big Two clash against rivals Linfield at Windsor Park.

“Jordan is a great kid and still has an awful lot to learn,” said Glentoran boss Eddie Patterson. “He goes over to England next week on trial to Peterborough.

“Fingers cross, it will work out for him — he’s looking forward to it.

“We didn’t play him at Solitude a few weeks back because he received word that the trial offer was off. His head just wasn’t right, so we left him out.

“He’s came on from the bench in the past two games against Crusaders and Linfield and made a big impact in both games.

“Jordan is a big player for us. Peterborough have since came back to us and the trial is back on. If he doesn’t make it across the water, he’s a massive part off my plans as long as I’m in charge.

“He is a quality kid. It was great to him to score against the Blues because his granddad was in the crowd . . . Phil Scott, the former Linfield player form the 1970s, was in the crowd.”
