Former Blue Spence Joins ADO Den Haag
Wednesday, 22nd Jan 2020 10:43
Former Blues right-back Jordan Spence has joined Alan Pardew’s ADO Den Haag in the Netherlands on a deal to the end of the season.
The 29-year-old, who spent time with the side third-bottom of the Eredivisie (the Dutch top tier) at a training camp in Spain earlier this month, was released by the Blues at the end of last season and has been without a club since then.
The Londoner made 69 starts and seven sub appearances for Town, scoring four times, having signed in January 2017 following a trial earlier that season.
Spence was a young player at West Ham during Pardew's time in charge at Upton Park.
“I look forward to making a contribution to ADO Den Haag,” Spence said. “The first impressions of the club and its fans are very good.
“My time at the training camp was important. The players immediately made me feel comfortable in Spain.
“It was good to see that the team won last weekend. Hopefully this victory will be the start of a nice second half of the season.”

On Friday the members of League One voted by majority to instigate a salary cap. In doing so they not only limit everybody in the division to spending £2.5m per season, but they limit themselves in making the transition to established second tier side or beyond.
We Should Encourage the Club and the League to Stream All Games by rugbytomc
In an ideal world, all League One clubs for next season would take the extra steps of temperature checks at the turnstiles with entry refused for anyone with a temperature and also insist on every fan entering the ground wearing a mask for the entirety of their time in the ground.
Euro Glory for Town by clivebleedingthomas
This was the season in which we had a realistic chance of winning the Treble - it sounds like complete fantasy now, but it happened. Our hopes of FA Cup glory had been finished, along with Kevin Beattie’s career as a Town player, at Villa Park.
Happy Highbury as Town Head to Wembley by clivebleedingthomas
As if going to an FA Cup semi-final was not stressful enough, I had added stress. I travelled on a Supporters Club coach, on board many families, including my father and my wife
