It’s taken a long-time for Jordan Willis to enjoy a full season as a consistent and first-choice player for the club in his preferred position of centre-back. Last season showed that he can be a reliable performer – at times capable of dominating opposing forwards – and formed part of one of the strongest defences in League Two. While not the most domineering of centre-backs, Willis is probably the best individual defender that we have in the squad, while his covering pace was a useful asset for the side as we took on teams looking to hit us on the counter last year.
Jordan Willis is a player that few will have any qualms about making the step-up to League One – he has already proven himself a capable performer at that level – although, we may possibly have to look at bringing a more dominant presence at the back to complement Willis’ qualities. As a player who’s often been talked about in terms of his potential, Willis has shown signs of maturing as a player and has settled into a fixed position, whereas in the past, his versatility probably held him back.
