Who Is Jordan Pickford Brother Richard?
An English footballer Jordan Pickford has an athlete brother named Richard Logan.
The Pickford brother both plays football at the professional level. Richard is the eldest among the two, born on February 18, 1988, making him 34 years of age, six years older than Jordan, who came to this world on March 7, 1994.
They both started playing football early, as their father, Lee Logan, would play with them in their backyard.
His older brother, Richard Pickford, encouraged him to pursue a career as a goalie and helped him get his first contract with a football club. When they were younger, both of them were active participants in football leagues. Unfortunately, Richard could never achieve his goal of reaching the top.
Jordan was only 17 when he signed for Sunderland in 2011. A year later, he was sent to Darlington, his brother Richard's old club, on a developmental loan. Thus began his long football career.
His brother's subpar experience in the professional game has helped to strengthen his younger sibling's drive to achieve his goals by working his way to the top and attracting the attention of England coach Gareth Southgate.
Richard would get him engaged in kickabouts outside their home in Washington, and he would tell his younger sibling to play his heart out and dive about. Similarly, Pickford's father, Lee, would get him involved in the games.
Jordan recalls watching World Cup during their childhood with his brother, "We were going to school early because of the time difference, and watching England on a massive TV, having our breakfast in the sports hall."
Richard Logan Has A Son Named Jude Pickford
Jordan's brother Richard is a father to Jude Pickford. Junior Pickford is also a football player. He won the Player of the month award for Barcelona in February this year. He now plays for Everton FC.
Richard uploaded a picture of him with the trophy on his Instagram. Aside from that, his Instagram is filled to the brim with photographs of his kid Jude. The father-son dynamic is a beautiful thing to see and something to treasure.
Similarly, Richard always brings him to watch his brother Jordan's football games. The two father-son duos were in the stand for the Euro 2020 final to see Jordan play for England against Italy.
And Richard and his son Jude will likely be at the World Cup games too. England will begin their World Cup 2022 voyage against Iran on November 21, 2022.
