¡¡¡¡Having worked now for both clubs, Andy Quy can see parallels between newly-promoted Premier League club Brentford and Burton Albion.

¡¡¡¡The Brewers¡¯ head of goalkeeping says those parallels are in a methodical and sustainable way of working and in the structure of the detailed coaching sessions put on by management duo Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink and Dino Maamria.

¡¡¡¡Quy is in a good position to make the comparison. He was asked to help Brentford out at short notice midway through the 2019-20 season when their goalkeeper coach, Inaki Cana Pavon, left for Arsenal. He worked with the Bees under manager Thomas Frank on a short-term contract until the end of a season in which they were beaten in the Championship play-off final.

¡¡¡¡Now, at Burton, it has soon become evident that Quy is playing a bigger role than merely helping the keepers on match-days.

¡¡¡¡¡°Brentford have a real set way of going about things,¡± said Quy. ¡°They don¡¯t rush into things, they¡¯re very cute on their recruitment. And the other thing is, they have some top coaches there as well.

¡¡¡¡¡°As much as everyone talks about the recruitment, the manager is a top, top manager who has good coaches with him. They¡¯re very structured in how they work and everyone knows what is expected of them.

¡¡¡¡¡°And, actually, that¡¯s one of the things that has struck me working with Jimmy and Dino. Dino has been a fantastic influence in the way that he structures and organises things.

¡¡¡¡¡°He has a definite way of how he sees things being done, how he wants the day and the training session to look. He¡¯s been a real influence and I¡¯ve enjoyed working with him on that side of things.¡±

¡¡¡¡Maamria¡¯s evident enthusiasm and energy have been a feature of Burton¡¯s revival since he and Hasselbaink arrived and the assistant manager frequently posts coaching insights on social media.

¡¡¡¡¡°I¡¯ve been fascinated by him,¡± said Quy, who arrived as head of goalkeeping at the end of January. ¡°Dino and the manager complement each other very well. Dino¡¯s thought processes about how he wants to do things are very impressive and I¡¯ve really enjoyed looking at that and seeing him work. It is very similar to the way the coaching staff work at Brentford.¡±

¡¡¡¡Quy is no less effusive about Hasselbaink.

¡¡¡¡¡°Jimmy has a wealth of experience, unbelievable, as a player and then what he¡¯s been through, too, as a manager, with successful periods and then periods that haven¡¯t gone so well for him, as he¡¯d say himself,¡± he said.

¡¡¡¡¡°He¡¯s learnt from those and it impresses me how he carries himself. He¡¯s a big bubbly personality. He can be very laid back at times but he knows exactly what he wants and he¡¯s very straight and honest. He tells you what he wants and he¡¯s very demanding of people and that was the biggest thing that struck me going in ¨C seeing what he was demanding of the players.

¡¡¡¡¡°He¡¯d obviously made a few changes, all over the pitch, he¡¯d told the players what he wanted and, to be fair to them, they all rose to the challenge. There were some players who didn¡¯t and they didn¡¯t get a lot of game time.¡±

¡¡¡¡Quy, whose playing career was cut short by injury, was on Derby County¡¯s books as a teenager and continued to live in the area, currently at Ashbourne. His coaching career took off with Stoke City and he was part of the staff when they went up to the Premier League. But he was always aware of what was happening at Burton and hopes he can now play a big role in the club¡¯s continued progress.

¡¡¡¡¡°Living in the area, I¡¯ve watched the growth of Burton, from non-League into the League and the Championship,¡± said Quy. ¡°It¡¯s been a very difficult 18 months for everybody and where the club have come from, with a lot of stability, has helped.

¡¡¡¡¡°It¡¯s been a difficult period, through Covid, going from Nigel Clough, to Jake Buxton and now the current manager. Now the structure the manager and Dino have put in place will be very good and very positive for a long time to come.

¡¡¡¡¡°One of the things when I spoke to the manager was about my experience. I¡¯m a goalkeeping coach by trade but I¡¯ve worked in football a long time, under some really good managers at the highest level, in the Premier League.

¡¡¡¡¡°I feel I have a lot to offer. You¡¯re one of the staff, not just the goalkeeping coach. You¡¯re someone who can help the team. My priority is to help the goalkeepers but, outside of that, I can help with set-pieces and with whatever is happening in a game at any time.

¡¡¡¡¡°I can pass on my experience and the manager will either take it or leave it, that¡¯s up to him, as always, with any manager. I feel I have a lot to offer outside of just being a goalkeeping coach and I think the manager sees that as a positive as well.

¡¡¡¡¡°It¡¯s great to be able to have that involvement. I was looking for a challenge and this is one which allows me to use all my experience.¡±
