The pacey left sided defender will look to continue developing his career under Ian Evatt at Bolton as he gets his chance to play in the Football League.

The 21 year-old made 50 appearances, netting three goals for Daggers but also had spells as a youth player with Fulham and AFC Wimbledon and is an international for Guyana with whom he has won five international caps since making his debut in 2019.

Speaking about his move to Wanderers, Gordon told bwfc.co.uk: “I’m really pleased to get the move sorted.

“He is extremely quick and has good quality with his left foot.

“He is a young player with a bright future.”
