Dean Gordon

Where is Dean Gordon now?

Former Premier League left-back Dean Gordon finally hung up his boots in 2009 after a spell in non-league football with Thornaby.

Although often regarded as a journeyman player he only actually played for two clubs (Middlesbrough and Crystal Palace) during his first 10 years in the game.

He went onto play for 18 years and ended up turning out for 22 clubs and making over 400 appearances.

Although he never won a full cap for the senior national side he was a regular for the under-21’s winning 13 caps between 1994 and 1995.

Upon retiring from playing Gordon went into coaching and teaching and for 10 years was part of the “Show Racism the Red Card”, charity which visits local schools to teach them about about racism.

He has also set up Pro-Motiv8 a company which delivers workshops in schools, colleges and community centres providing football coaching and fun days during the school holidays as well as running Futsal leagues in the North-East of England.

In 2019 he qualified as a licensed FA agent / intermediary.

His son Nathan Wood-Gordon has followed in his father’s footsteps and is a promising footballer who currently plays for Middlesbrough.
