In a ruthless double sacking, the Blues owner fired head groundskeeper Jason Griffin, his assistant, and his son Reisse. Griffin senior had been head groundsman since 2003, and Reisse was part of a team of ten staff members that he led in caring for the pitch at Stamford Bridge.

Reisse was the club’s assistant grounds manager, but both have since left their positions, according to the Daily Mail.

In addition to Chelsea’s home ground, the Griffins worked on pitches at the club’s Cobham training complex and Kingsmeadow, which hosts the club’s women’s and youth teams.

During Griffin’s tenure as team leader, Chelsea’s ground staff has received praise and industry recognition.

While the club has told the Daily Mail that it will not comment on personnel matters, it is understood that the departures of the Grffins are part of a larger staff shake-up that has been going on since Boehly’s takeover last summer.NYSC Portal

Since acquiring Chelsea from Roman Abramovich, the American and his Clearlake Capital consortium have made numerous changes to the club’s off-field personnel. Medical, recruitment, and coaching staff have since left the club, and the Blues’ hierarchy has changed.

Griffin senior made headlines in 2008 as a Chelsea groundsman when he was involved in an FA investigation following a clash between ground staff and Manchester United fullback Patrice Evra.

Evra barged Chelsea’s then-head groundsman as staff began working on the pitch following a home victory over the Red Devils.

Griffin and United’s then-fitness coach Tony Strudwick clashed after the incident, with the FA’s subsequent investigation supporting Griffin’s version of events.

Following the investigation, the commission said: “We broadly prefer Mr Griffin’s account. We were favourably impressed by Mr Griffin as a witness, who came across as frank, calm and sensible. Mr Strudwick we found less reliable.”

It is yet to be confirmed who will lead Chelsea’s grounds team moving forward following the departures of head groundsman Jason and his assistant Reisse.JAMB Result
