Joined the Spurs academy full-time in the 2009/10 season as a 16 year old and one of his first games came on 16 Jan 2010 in an academy league (U-18) match against the MK Dons. He played some more academy games during this season, rotating with fellow keepers Jamie Butler and Oscar Jansson, both who are no longer with the club. The 2010/11 season saw him get even more game time in the academy league, rotating with fellow keeper, and recent Spurs professional, Jonathan Miles. He also made his U-19 international debut against Malta in a friendly on 18 Aug 2010.

Having impressed in the academy, and now 18 years old, Archer signed his first professional contract on 07 Jul 2011 and played in his first Spurs XI match on 26 Jul 2011, again against the MK Dons. He was part of the winning Eurofoot squad in early August and played in the first match of the NextGen Series on 17 Aug 2011 as well as one academy league game on 27 Aug 2011. By this point he had already been called up to the Scotland U-21 squad and was on the bench for a friendly match against Norway on 10 Aug 2011. A further call-up for a competitive game against Bulgaria on 05 Sep 2011 followed but he finally got some games, albeit for the U-19s, towards the end of September when he was first choice for the qualifying rounds of the 2012 UEFA U-19 European Championships.

His fast developing international career was followed by a one-month loan spell with Conference North club Bishop's Stortford on 01 Oct 2011. Stortford were managed at the time by former Spurs keeper and Archer's hero Ian Walker. His loan was subsequently extended by another month twice and eventually became a season-long loan. He even remained first choice keeper after Walker's departure on 11 Dec 2011 and during this time he got a further two call-ups for the U-21 squad, being on the bench for both games against the Netherlands in November and February. He also played in two cup finals, winning both, with Bishop's Stortford.

His loan spell was a success, returning to Spurs a much better keeper and with many positives reviews and man of the match performances based around his shot stopping and reflexes. His distribution and coming for crosses also improved during this time. He saw some further game time with the Scotland U-20 squad in a youth tournament towards the end of May where he played 3 games. Off the back of this, on 13 Jul 2012 it was announced by Spurs that he had signed a new contract until 2013.

At the start of 2012/13 he played in a couple of Spurs XI friendlies, making his first start and first full game against Northampton Town on 04 Aug 2012. He also made the squad as the 4th choice keeper (behind Brad Friedel, Carlo Cudicini and Heurelho Gomes but ahead of David Button) on the pre-season tour of the USA but didn't get any game time. With the new U-21 league in place, and with fellow keepers David Button, Ben Alnwick, Oscar Jansson and Mirko Ranieri all moving on from the club, he has been sharing goalkeeping duties with Jonathan Miles. He also finally made his U-21 international debut as a first half substitute against Belgium in a friendly on 14 Aug 2012. He followed this up with his first competitive start on 06 Sep 2012 against Luxembourg..

Seemingly fifth choice at the club but with Brad Friedel and Carlo Cudicini coming to the end of their careers and Heurelho Gomes possibly looking elsewhere for first team action he could potentially find himself in the next couple of seasons in the first team squad.

Jordan Archer also did well for us in goal and made his saves when we needed him.

SCOTLAND U-21s

10.09.2012 vs Austria (A) 3-2 (L)
2013 UEFA U-21 Qualification (Round 8)

Played in this game also as expected but Scotland fail to make the play-offs for the tournament as best runner-ups.
Bain once more on the bench with Kettings not making the final squad once more.
06.09.2012 vs Luxembourg (H) 3-0 (W)

Friendly

42' Subbed On

Got his first U-21 cap coming on as a first half substitute for injured Hearts keeper Mark Ridgers.
Scott Bain (Alloa Athletic) was also in the initial squad.

Belgium were looking increasingly assured and Archer made another good stop from Dolly Menga's 25-yard strike.

With St Mirren's Grant Adam out with a leg fracture, Archer could be called on for the team's final two qualifiers for the UEFA U-21 Championship against Luxembourg and Austria early in September as Billy Stark's side look to stay in the top two places and seal a play-off spot.

"Jordan Archer won his first under-21 cap in our last match against Belgium after the injury to Mark Ridgers, but he's a player that I know well and has good youth international experience. He has played under-19 qualifiers for us, and went to Holland with Ricky Sbragia's under-20 squad earlier this year. He's got a great temperament and did well when he came on against Belgium in quite difficult circumstances."
25.05.2012 vs Bulgaria (A) 2-2 (D)
2013 UEFA U-21 Qualification (Round 6)

Not In Squad

Was called up but did not make the final squad.

Friendly

Not In Squad

Ridgers selected from the start with Grant Adam (Rangers, now on loan at Airdrie United) coming on at half time. Matthew Edwards (Rochdale) was also selected for the initial squad.

It is likely with Bishop's Stortford in two cup finals he was not called up so he could play for them in the finals.

2013 UEFA U-21 Qualification (Round 5)

Unused Sub

06.10.2011 vs Luxembourg (A) 1-5 (W)
2013 UEFA U-21 Qualification (Round 2)

Not In Squad

Not called up for this or the next game.
Adam was once more first choice with Ridgers on the bench.

Stark has made one other change from the squad that faced Bulgaria earlier this month with Dundee United goalkeeper Marc McCallum replacing Jordan Archer of Tottenham Hotspur.

He said: "It's good to have some stability in the squad. Most of the players in the squad are playing regularly at their clubs and that can only benefit us. Danny Wilson aside, I've only made one change from the last squad with Marc McCallum coming in for these games."

"I had Jordan Archer in Slovenia with the under-19s and he's been in the last few under-21 squads but I just felt it would be good to give Marc some experience of working with our goalkeeping coach Jim Leighton."
05.09.2011 vs Bulgaria (H) 0-0 (D)

Jordan Archer's only action of the afternoon came in the 79th minute as he dived high to his left to keep out a rising 15 yard shot from Danny Elliott after good work on the left by Alex Troke.

The visitors were thankful to a stunning save from on-loan Spurs keeper Jordan Archer deep into second-half injury-time.

From front to back, we were excellent today. Jordan for the saves.

Jordan pulled off some brilliant saves which had the Guisley fans talking about after the game.

Thanks to some outstanding saves from Jordan they just couldn't get the ball in the net.

Guiseley fans have been very impressed with Alli and Jordan on the North forum, after their displays today.

Herts Senior Challenge Cup (Final)

Not In Squad

Conference North (Round 40)

Not In Squad

Still out with a knee problem as Matt Gill carries on in goal.
Jordan Archer was ruled out with a knee injury which resulted in Blues boss Rod Stringer giving a home league debut to young keeper Matt Gill.

I thought our reserve keeper looked calm and on the ball today despite long spells of no action.

Now I'm in charge of goalkeeper selection, I'll probably leave Matt between the sticks for the rest of the season. The experience can only help him.
09.04.2012 vs Hinckley Utd (A) 3-1 (W)
Conference North (Round 39)

Not In Squad

Still out injured as 17 year old academy keeper Matt Gill was given his league debut in place of Aldi Haxhia.
Regular keeper Jordan Archer was ruled out with a knee injury for a second consecutive game.

Stringer is hoping that keeper Jordan Archer will have recovered from his knee injury in time for the Vauxhall Motors game.

07.04.2012 vs Nuneaton Town (H) 0-3 (L)
Conference North (Round 38)

Not In Squad

Out injured again with a knee injury as Aldi Haxhia took his place.
Stortford, who brought in keeper Aldi Haxhia for Jordan Archer (knee injury).

New keeper was poor in view of his kicking.
03.04.2012 vs Stalybridge Celtic (A) 3-2 (W)
Conference North (Round 37)
The ball falling to Mitchell Austin whose snap shot was well stopped by Jordan Archer.

Phil Marsh managed to get on the end of a lob to try and loop a backwards header over Archer, but the Bishop's Stortford keeper was well positioned.

Conference North (Round 36)

Returned from injury but suffered the joint heaviest defeat of the season.
Low angled effort was well held low down by Jordan Archer.

Corner was cleared out to Reece Gray whose shot was well saved by Archer diving high to his right.

Took the ball on before delivering it low in front of goal and finding its way just inside the far post with Jordan Archer seemingly mesmerised.

27.03.2012 vs Hyde (H) 0-1 (L)
Conference North (Round 35)

Not In Squad

Out injured, missing only the fourth game of his loan spell, as new signing Aldi Haxhia took his place and had little to do, conceding from a penalty.
Both Jordan Archer and Phil Anderson were sidelined due to injury.

Remember our goalkeeper having one save to make other than the penalty 8 mins from time?

The keeper did what needed to be done..
24.03.2012 vs Halifax Town (H) 1-3 (L)
Conference North (Round 34)

Struggled with injury throughout this game, resulting in a poor performance.
Conceded two early goals today as Blues keeper Jordan Archer struggled with a knee injury.

Either they played on the injury that Jordan Archer clearly had or were just clinical in the opening foray.

Stortford only had teenage Academy keeper Matt Gill on the bench, so on-loan Spurs keeper Archer soldiered on even though he was clearly unfit.

Archer was clearly struggling at this stage and Blues readied Academy keeper Matt Gill, but the Spurs man waved the substitution away.

Jordan Archer had picked up a knee injury the day before in training with Spurs and was clearly in some discomfort and Phil Anderson was taking the goal-kicks for him.

Too many Blues players were playing back passes to Archer and this was exacerbating the problem as he was having to kick away the danger while Halifax smelt blood.

Jordon was clearly struggling, at no fault with first goal but could possibly have done better with second if fit.
21.03.2012 vs Stevenage (H) 3-0 (W)
Herts Senior Challenge Cup (Semifinal)

Kept his 10th clean sheet of the season as Stortford now have a second cup final to look forward to, against Oxhey Jets on 18 Apr 2012, after beating a Stevenage side containing seven first teamers. The club have now also brought in 20-year old goalkeeper Aldi Haxhia, who spent 4 years in the Chelsea youth squad, for cover.
Except for a couple of saves late on Jordan Archer had little to do.

A good diving save to his left by Archer stopped a 20 yard shot.
17.03.2012 vs Workington (A) 1-1 (D)
Conference North (Round 33)

Has now made his 30th appearance for the club, the first of our loanees this season to achieve this.
Scott had a header tipped over the bar by visiting keeper Jordan Archer. From the following corner Arnison tested the keeper again, but he was up to the challenge and kept the Reds out until half time.

Unfortunately we gifted them their goal when we didn't clear our lines and passed it to their forward to score.

BLUES boss Rod Stringer wants to bring in cover for keeper Jordan Archer before the transfer deadline.

Stringer said: "I'm hoping to sign a keeper by Friday. Jordan was not well [on Tuesday] but he had to play [at FC Halifax Town] and it was quite worrying. I need somebody that can do a job for me."

The Blues boss fears the 18-year-old stopper will miss the trip to Workington this Saturday.

Archer, who is attached to Spurs, has performed well for Stortford since he made his debut in the 1-0 win at Canvey Island in the second qualifying round of the FA Cup.
13.03.2012 vs Halifax Town (A) 1-0 (W)
Conference North (Round 32)

Back to back clean sheets once again for the young keeper.
Jordan Archer, although not feeling well during the match, made crucial saves to keep his goal intact.

Jordan Archer's best save before the break came in the 28th minute. The ball was collected by James Dean and his deflected shot was held by the stopper diving to his right.

Tom Baker tested the Bishops net many times from range, but Jordan Archer was more than a match with a string of acrobatic stops.

Archer palmed the ball uncomfortably into the air, but Dean couldn't react in time to beat the keeper to it.

Baker striking another long range effort, but Archer was an equal match as he tipped acrobatically over the bar.

Archer looked suspect when put under pressure, and another long range strike from Baker troubled him.

Archer proving a worthy match once more as he palmed strongly away from goal.

RATINGS: ARCHER - 8
10.03.2012 vs Altrincham (A) 2-0 (W)

Conference North (Round 30)

A few minutes later another corner resulted in Archer saving a drive from the edge of the box.

Netted with an angled shot past Archer that went inside the far post.
03.03.2012 vs Droylsden (H) 5-0 (W)
Conference North (Round 29)

First back to back clean sheets this season.
Then, late in the contest, Jordan Archer, who had had little to deal with, dealt with a short low cross from Dale Johnson by diverting it away with an outstretched leg.

It seemed almost certain Droylsden would net a consolation goal when Hall and Cliff Moyo combined but Archer was alert to save Moyo's shot with his legs.

Jordan only touched the ball or made any saves in the last 20 mins.
25.02.2012 vs Altrincham (H) 1-0 (W)
Conference North (Round 28)

His sixth clean sheet of the season.
With half-time approaching Blues keeper Jordan Archer earned his crust with fine saves from a mazy run from Altrincham striker Jack Redshaw and then moments later from skipper Shaun Densmore's header.

Jordan's distribution gets better every game.
21.02.2012 vs West Ham XI (H) 3-2 (W)
Friendly (Mid-Season)

82' Subbed Off

Played 82 minutes against a team mostly comprising of the Hammers' Development squad. The remaining minutes were played by academy keeper Matt Gill.

18.02.2012 vs Droylsden (A) 2-2 (D)
Conference North (Round 27)

Due to bad weather, 3 league matches were postponed before this one went ahead.
Jordan Archer, in the Stortford goal, also had to be in good form as he also made a number of fine stops during the course of the match.

Jordan Archer was alert to hold on to a deflected shot.

Flag stayed down but fortunately Jordan Archer made an excellent save and the ball rebounded to safety.

Gayle flicked on a long clearance from Archer into the path of Daniel Subuola but Phillips made a superb save.

His shot from an acute angle shouldn't really have gone in but it looked to clip someone and deflected over Jordan Archer, a cruel blow as the keeper had made some fantastic saves throughout the match.
31.01.2012 vs Hemel Hempstead Town (A) 1-0 (W) Herts Charity Cup (Semifinal)

This was the 5th away cup game in a row for Stortford and they now have a final to look forward to against Leverstock Green on 24 Apr 2012. Eight teams entered this competition so only 3 games are required to win it, with Stortford beating Ware back on 30 Jul 2011 in the quarterfinal game.
Johnson nodded a long clearance from Jordan Archer into Dwight Gayle's path and he made tracks for goal.

Jordan Archer had to make a good save.

Archer made a despairing lunge to stop the ball from crossing the line but failed to stop it entering the net.

Header was parried away by Jordan Archer but it fell nicely for Paul Brayson to nod past the keeper from a few yards.

Gayle headed on an Archer clearance for Junior Dadson to cut in from the left at goal only to agonisingly skim across the six yard box past the far upright.
10.01.2012 vs Boston Utd (A) 2-0 (W)
Conference North (Round 24)

Was booked in this match. As his loan spell has now been extended to the end of the season, recently signed keeper Adam Rafis has left and re-joined his old club Aveley.
Jordan Archer was called into action when he pulled off an excellent save throwing himself to his left to prevent a Jason Lee header finding the net following a Ross corner.

Has now had his loan spell extended until the end of the season.
Jordan Archer was hard pressed to deal with a difficult swinging corner.

Jordan Archer then made an outstanding save by turning a header from Remy Clerima over the bar following a Sparkes corner.

Keeper only had 1 wobble, decent for a youngster.

Bit surprised Rafis signed if this was in the offing.

I think from what has been said and written recently, that there was a very good chance Jordan's loan may not have been extended.

Continuity will hopefully help the defence. Jordan is a very good keeper.

Good news, this. Stability in the goalkeeping position is always welcome. The last thing we needed was the loan to finish and another 'keeper coming in and having to build a relationship with the back four.

Very welcome news imo.

It was thought Archer may return to White Hart Lane as he had initially only gone to Stortford because former boss Ian Walker was his hero as a small child growing up in North London.

Archer was stung when the club announced Walker's departure after the 5-0 debacle at Carshalton in the FA Trophy first round.

However, Archer has agreed to stay on while Spurs are pleased for the youngster to be picking up vital experience at this level.
26.12.2011 vs Histon (H) 0-2 (L)
Conference North (Round 21)

Stortford signed ex-Harlow keeper Adam Rafis on 20 Dec 2011, with Archer's loan spell expiring at the end of the month.
Jordan Archer had to be alert to keep out a long range effort.

Think Archer has been excellent although v Histon he was less than confident.

His loan ends on December 31, but Stringer hopes to extend this deal.

Stringer has made his first signing by bringing in ex-Harlow Town stopper Adam Rafis from Redbridge in case Archer snubs another loan deal.

Looks a good signing. Keeper for Redbridge on recent cup run.

Tony Adams nephew.

Can't see the new chap coming to sit on the bench.

Has Archer gone back then?

I believe his 3 month loan expires over the Christmas period.
17.12.2011 vs Gloucester City (A) 2-0 (W)
Conference North (Round 20)

Manager Ian Walker left the club by mutual consent the day after the heavy defeat by Carshalton Athletic in the FA Trohpy with Rob Stringer taking over two days later. As Walker was Archer's hero growing up it remains to be seen if he will be sticking around after his loan spell expires at the end of the month. This was his first clean sheet in a league game.
Jordan Archer was rarely troubled in the match.

Archer did well to cut out a dangerous left wing cross.
10.12.2011 vs Carshalton (A) 0-5 (L)
FA Trophy (1st Round)

The most goals he has conceded in a game whilst playing for Stortford as they exit the competition early.
With the aid of a deflection, looped over Jordan Archer and under the bar.

Jordan Archer was the busier of the two goalkeepers and the Blues' stopper was at full stretch to keep out a shot.

He wasn't so convincing a minute later as a harmless looking effort from Pigden deflected off his hands and flew narrowly over the bar.

The resultant inswinging corner on the left flew straight into the net inside the far post.

Archer was again in action in the 72nd minute as he made a fine save.

Back in the team after international duty and produced a good display.
Stortford were indebted to Archer for making two excellent saves in injury time.

Jordan did pull off 2 excellent saves.

Jordan made at least 2 critical saves in the second half.

Our Keeper....top drawer again.
15.11.2011 vs Harrogate Town (A) 1-1 (D)
Conference North (Round 17)

Not In Squad

Was away on international duty with Scotland U-21s as Louis Godwin-Green continued in his place and played well in goal.
Have to say the keeper had a superb game and commanded his area well and made the saves expected of him.
12.11.2011 vs Solihull Moors (A) 1-3 (L)
Conference North (Round 16)

Not In Squad

The new stand-in keeper was voted fans' man of the match.
The change in between the posts saw Louis Godwin-Green deputise for the injured Jordan Archer who in any case had been called up for the Scotland under 21 squad.

Blues were forced to give a debut to keeper Louis Godwin-Green, signed from Great Wakering Rovers.

Keeper was released this week by Jimmy Greaves son (the new Great Wakering Rovers manager) after 199 first team appearances.

He also said our keepers "presence" was non existant.....

So I'm now wrong about the keeper, ffs. He's won mom for Solihull so it must have only been me who thought he was toilet.
08.11.2011 vs Watford (H) 4-1 (W)
Herts Senior Challenge Cup (1st Round)

Not In Squad

Out with a rib injury and his stand-in George Dawson did not impress, being substituted after 58 minutes for academy keeper Matt Gill. The Watford side comprised of first and second year scholars who normally play in the Hornets' Academy side.
Jordan Archer, though, had a rib injury and George Dawson, last season's reserve team keeper, took his place between the sticks to make his first team debut.

Don't know where our new keeper came from but where ever it was send him back, he was shit and 4 foot tall. I would have rather seen Matt Gill from the academy start or possibly a smurf.

Some brilliant saves from both keepers we used.

Thought the young -16year old?-goalkeeper (sorry didn't catch his name) who had last thirty minutes was impressive.Looked very confident and decisive.

I thought that Gill (2nd half keeper) was a good stopper and made some good saves.
05.11.2011 vs Gainsborough (H) 1-1 (D)
Conference North (Round 15)

Has been called up to Scotland's U-21 squad for the second time in his young career.
Jordan Archer reacted well to turn a Mettam shot round the post.

Lewis McMahon drove at goal from 12 yards but Jordan Archer pulled off an excellent save pushing the ball aside at full length.

Blues keeper Jordan Archer, picked for the Scotland U-21 squad, played well.

Leon Mettam's shot was too strong for Archer.

Congratulations to him he clearly has a future in the game.
29.10.2011 vs Salisbury City (H) 1-2 (L)
FA Cup (4th Qualifying Round)

Has had his one month loan spell extended by another month but unfortunately Stortford were unable to get to the first round proper of the FA Cup.
A free-kick from Luke Ruddick towards the edge of the box wasn't held by Jordan Archer.

Archer saved a shot from Jake Reid and shortly afterwards a far post header from Adam Kelly.

Archer turned a shot from Reid over the bar, then stopped a header from Dutton soon afterwards.

If it hadn't beem for Archer pulling off some great saves (again),we would have been totally humiliated.

Our keeper again pulled off some really good saves.

Midfielder Lewis Whiteley and keeper Jordan Archer will also be available as their loans have been extended.
25.10.2011 vs Corby Town (H) 0-2 (L)
Conference North (Round 14)

Voted fans' man of the match.
He made an excellent save tipping a James Ozmen close range header over the bar.

The Blues keeper saved the situation with a fine block at the expense of a corner.

A misjudgement by Jordan Archer when dealing with a Corby free-kick.

The Keeper....TOP DRAWER!! hope hes with us for whole season.

Conference North (Round 12)

League debut, conceding the first goal of his loan spell.
Jordan Archer turned a shot from the edge of the box by Matt Lock over the bar.

Fierce low shot from just inside the area went through Archer to find the back of the net.

Keeper Jordon Archer also still impresses me....

I can't remember archer having to make save until we were 3-0 up.
01.10.2011 vs Canvey Island (A) 1-0 (W)
FA Cup (2nd Qualifying Round)

Having been first choice keeper in the UEFA U-19 European Championships the week before, he made his debut for Stortford and had an excellent game, getting his first clean sheet and winning the fans' man of the match award.
As expected this was no easy passage with Jordan Archer, a new loan signing from Spurs, making an excellent debut between the sticks with some fine saves including a couple from his own defenders.

In the 52nd minute Jordan Archer produced a great reaction save to hold a Sean Francis headed back pass high above his head.

The ball skimmed off the top of the head of Jeffries and it seemed a certain goal as the ball headed just under the bar but Archer pulled off an incredible save turning the ball over the crossbar.

Jordan Archer, what a game!!!!! My MOTM!

Without a doubt the keeper was our MOM.

Top marks to our keeper...steady keeper steady defence..[most of the time]and that was his first game with them..hope Walker sticks with him.

Yes the loanee keeper to me was the man of the match, pulling off some brilliant saves on the occasions he was called to, and his long kick caused canvey problems.
