Known by many fans already thanks to his role in setting up the official Newport County AFC USA Supporters Club, Gordon will once again be making the long trip from America to back the Exiles this weekend. 
 
Following the announcement of the Club's Official American Supporters Club, Gordon said: “I became a County fan because I fell in love after learning about the club’s history, the highs and lows the supporters had been through, and the amazing people who had been a part of it all."
 
In total Gordon will travel over 9,000 miles in travelling to and from Wembley from his home in Washington. A huge effort.
