Current Club: Grays Athletic (Ryman League (Manager)
Date of Birth:  
Nationality: English


Jody Brown was Tiptree United manager for 2 and a half years where his team finished 6th then 3rd, breaking the league goals record in the process. This was juggled with his other work as an academy coach at Colchester United.

He then went to Halstead Town where he helped build their own full time academy & missed out on promotion on goal difference twice in 3 years. Following this he went to Redbridge who, before his arrival, had only 9 points from 22 games and went on to win take 36 points from his 22 games at the helm and steer well clear of relegation. Unfortunately he was forced to step down as manager due to family issues but was asked to stay on as number 2 by Terry Spillane who openly gave him much of the credit for the tactical preparation as the team finished 6th and enjoyed cup success in reaching the FA Cup 2nd Round, only conceding 1 goal in the first 6 rounds.

At the same time, Brown was also working for Norwich City with likes of Darren Huckerby & Dean Ashton as coach in the 12-16 age group.

Next up was a move to Maldon where they finished 2nd to Grays. After this Jody decided to step down in order to further his career. he scouted for Bishops Stortford

Jody is also a licensed UEFA coach, has a Sports Science degree and, in total, has managed or coached for over 10 years. Away from football he has also managed companies and writes a column for the Gazette in Colchester.

Brown took charge of Heybridge Swifts in December 2013 and led them to third place in the Ryman League North division. On 27th June 2014, he quit the Swifts to take charge as manager of Ryman Premier League side Grays Athletic.
