Burton Albion days

Hornby first linked up with Burton Albion back in 2012 after previously working at West Bromwich Albion.

He held a variety of roles during his first spell at the club and worked as an Academy Recruitment Co-ordinator, Head of Academy Coaching and First-Team coach before leaving after four years.

Ipswich Town then came calling and he became their Head Regional Scout for a period of four years before returning to the Brewers in February 2021.

The League One side are now preparing for the next campaign and have been boosted by the fact manager Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is going nowhere.

He has been linked with fellow third tier outfit Barnsley but will not be moving to Oakwell with the club publishing an official statement on the matter yesterday.

Burton Albion finished 16th in the table last season and were comfortably in mid-table as they prepare for a busy summer ahead now.
