The former West Bromwich Albion Technical Director and former Leeds United assistant manager Boothroyd started as a full-time manager role in the 2005 summer for Watford. In his first season as a full-time manager, Watford promoted to the Premier League after a six-year wait as they won the Championship playoff final.

Since February 2014, Boothroyd managed several English national youth teams. He served this role till April 2021 as he managed the England U20, England U19, and England U21 teams. Boothroyd played a huge role in that development sector to bring the present English football talents. He nurtured the players like Ben Chilwell, Calum Hudson-Odoi, Trent Alexander Arnold, Tammy Abraha, Mason Mount, Jordan Pickford, Aaron Wan-Bissaka etc.

Last season was the first time that Jamshedpur qualified for the ISL playoffs as they won the ISL 2021/22 Premiership after finishing top of the points table. However, they were beaten by Kerala Blasters in the two-legged semi-finals of that competition.

This upcoming season is going to be more challenging with a longer schedule, and the Jamshedpur team is getting ready to start the season strongly.
