After working with Leicester City Women as reserve team manager, Jonathan Morgan was appointed as the club’s first team manager during the 2014-15 season.
After achieving promotion to the second tier of the women’s game, he went on to oversee a memorable 2020-21 campaign as he guided the ‘Foxes’ to the FA Women’s Championship title for the first time in their history. His side amassed 50 points from 20 league games on their way to lifting the trophy, including 16 wins and a total of 54 goals scored during their first season as a professional outfit. During that season they also embarked on a 12-game winning streak in the league – a Championship record – before celebrating promotion to the FA Women’s Super League with their first-ever fixture at the King Power Stadium.
As well as guiding Leicester to promotion to the WSL that season, he also took them to the League Cup semi-finals and to the last eight of the FA Cup, although completion of the competition has been postponed due to Covid.
Following his team’s achievements in the 2020-21 campaign, Jonathan Morgan was named the FA Women’s Championship LMA Manager of the Year.
