Chelsea team with the club president after 30 years at the club

Chelsea part ways with their boss – and his assistant son – after 30 years working for them…but the club refuse to reveal the reasons behind Todd Boyley’s latest reform.

  • Grounds boss Jason Griffin and his son Reece have left Stamford Bridge
  • Jason joined Chelsea in 2003, and Reece has been his assistant for over 10 years
  • The Griffin duo are the latest staff to leave Chelsea after several years

Chelsea have separated from club chairman Jason Griffin as well as his assistant and son Reese.

In a continuation of the personnel overhaul that has taken place since the Chelsea takeover last May, the Griffin duo have become the latest staff to leave after a number of years at the club.

Griffin has been with Chelsea for over 30 years. He became Head of Grounds in 2003 and led a team that included Reisse, who served as Assistant Grounds Manager, and faced dual figures.

They were responsible for looking after the club’s roofs and pitches at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham and Kingsmeadow where the women’s and youth teams play, earning industry recognition for some of their work along the way.

Chelsea stated that they do not comment on personnel matters. The Todd Bohle/Clearlake Capital consortium bought Chelsea last summer for £4.25 billion after the British government sanctioned former Russian owner Roman Abramovich and forced him to sell the club.

Since then sweeping changes have been made in many areas of the club including its hierarchy, training, playing, medical staff and currently.

Griffin Sr. has found himself caught up in the FA’s investigation into a confrontation between former Manchester United defender Patrice Evra and members of Chelsea’s ground team in April 2008.

He attacked Evra Griffin as Chelsea tried to start work on the pitch after London’s 2-1 win over United. Then Griffin also became embroiled in a row with then-United fitness coach Tony Strudwick.

After assessing the different versions of events, the FA committee said: “We broadly favor Mr Griffin’s account. We were positively impressed by Mr Griffin as a witness, who appears candid, calm and reasonable. Mr Strudwick we found less reliable.”
