A club legend at Southampton, former captain Jason Dodd retired from playing in 2006 after a brief spell at non-league Eastleigh.

Upon retiring from playing Dodd went into coaching and joined Eastleigh as head coach before taking over the vacant manager’s position in December 2006

He stayed in the role for seven months before joining George Burley as first team coach at Southampton in the summer of 2007 where he spent time as joint caretaker manager before getting released at the end of the season.

After a brief spell as caretaker manager of Aldershot Town in 2009, Dodd returned to his former club Southampton as director of their academy and head coach of their under-18’s side.

In 2014 Dodd and along with fellow coach Paul Williams were controversially sacked for allegedly not spending enough time with their under-16’s squad.

The pair had been instrumental in bringing through a number of players into the first team squad including Luke Shaw, Callum Chambers and James Ward-Prowse.

Later that year they both returned to football when they joined Gosport Borough as assistant coaches but Dodd left after just over a year at the club.

He is currently working as head of football at Winchester College where he develops coaching programmes for all age groups.
