Jeffrey joins Palace from Reading Women, with whom he spent a total of 11 years, four leading the Under-21s’ programme and seven as First-Team Assistant Coach.
During that time, the Royals achieved one fourth-place, and two fifth-place, finishes in the Women’s Super League, also reaching the semi-finals of the Women’s FA Cup.
Jeffrey now joins Palace’s coaching staff led by new head coach Laura Kaminski, as the Eagles look to build on back-to-back top-five finishes in the Women’s Championship.
“I’m looking forward to getting started at Palace,” Jeffrey told cpfc.co.uk. “It’s a club that is going in the right direction, and I want to be part of that.
“From what I’ve seen of the staff and the players so far, I think we’re capable of growing and becoming an even better club, one that plays a really good style and brand of football.
“The training ground is amazing. It’s where everyone wants to be – a professional environment with professional people – and it means for staff and players, we can focus on the week ahead, preparing properly for our professional games.
“There’s some really good talent here, and overall, I think we can have a good go this season and see where we finish.”
Palace’s 2023/24 Women’s Championship campaign begins this Sunday (27th August) with the visit of Reading to the VBS Community Stadium.
