Marinus Dijkhuizen

Marinus Dijkhuizen was appointed as Head Coach of Brentford Football Club on 1 June 2015.

On 28 September 2015, Marinus left Brentford FC after 9 games in charge.

The 43-year-old from the Netherlands had been in the same post at S.B.V. Excelsior since January 2014.
Marinus signed a contract to leave the Rotterdam club and take up the role at Griffin Park.

Marinus started his playing career at non-league 'S-Gravenzandse SV and he had two spells at Excelsior.
The former striker also played for Dunfermline in the Scottish Premier League and for FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie, the top flight in the Netherlands.

His coaching career also started at 'S-Gravenzandse SV and he successfully managed fellow non-league sides vv Montfoort and vv De Meern, leading the latter to back-to-back promotions. He also worked at Utrecht as an attacking coach and helped them to a Europa League place.

Marinus took over at Excelsior nearly 18 months ago and led them to promotion to the top division in his first half season at the helm. Despite being the smallest club in the Eredivisie, Excelsior were always clear of relegation danger last season and finished in their highest league position for almost 30 years.
