HEAD of Goalkeeping Andy Quy will depart Burton Albion following tomorrow’s game against Oxford United.
The former Stoke City and Brentford goalkeeping coach is set to head to the United States to join forces with newly established MLS side Charlotte FC.
Quy joined the Brewers last season at the end of February, helping the club to avoid relegation from Sky Bet League One.
"Sadly, my time with Burton has been cut short for an opportunity that I couldn’t turn down,” said Quy.
“I’d like to say thank the gaffer and Dino, chairman Ben Robinson, the players, the club and academy staff, and the fans for making me feel so welcome since joining.
“Last season I got to experience defying the odds and help to keep the club in the league - it was a remarkable achievement. The team has had a good start to this season, and I wish them every success moving forward.”
Brewers’ manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink, said: “We’re gutted to lose Andy because he’s been magnificent since he came in.
“We’re reluctant to let him go but wish him every success in the future.
“Football is very small and I’m sure we’ll cross paths again.”
Hasselbaink confirmed that the club will make a new appointment shortly.
Everyone at Burton Albion wishes Andy all the best in his new venture.
