Jody Morris - Under-18 team manager

A former Chelsea first team player who came through our youth system to play in the Champions League, Jody returned to assist with our Under-21s in 2013/14 before embarking on a hugely successful two-season spell as assistant to Joe Edwards for our Under-18s.

Over the course of his time working with the Under 18s he helped guide them to consecutive FA Youth Cup triumphs, beating Manchester City over two legs in both 2015 and 2016.

Our youth team also enjoyed solid league campaigns while Morris was involved, twice finishing third in the top tier of the play-off groups having won the southern section.

During his time as a Chelsea player he made 173 appearances and was part of the squads which won the European Cup Winners’ Cup in 1998 and FA Cup in 2000.
