Ex-Reggae Boy Euell leaves coaching role at Charlton

LONDON, England (CMC):

FORMER REGGAE Boy Jason Euell has left his role as first-team coach with English League One club Charlton Athletic, saying he is “excited for what the future holds”.

Euell, 45, was appointed in April 2021, having spent eight years coaching the Addicks’ Under-21s and then the Under-23 side.

The former player was Charlton’s record signing in 2001 when he joined from Wimbledon for £4.75 million (US$5.81 million).

He spent six seasons with the team over two spells, making 171 appearances, and won three caps for Jamaica, scoring one goal between 2004 and 2006.

Used as a midfielder or forward, Euell also had spells with English clubs Middlesbrough, Southampton and Blackpool during his playing career.

In October, Euell was made Charlton’s assistant manager to Johnnie Jackson, following the departure of Nigel Adkins as boss. However, Jackson left the club in May, only six months after being permanently appointed, with Ben Garrner recently taking over.

“Charlton has played a huge role in my life and I’ve always tried to give back as much as it has given me over the years,” Euell said.

“But a football club is only ever as good as the people working in it, and I’ve been lucky to work with some exceptional people since I rejoined in 2011.

“Whilst it’s hard to leave such a great club, I am excited for what the future holds as I take the next step.”
