Golden Arrows has appointed English born manager Mark Harrison as the new club head coach, the club confirmed on Monday.

This comes after the struggling Golden Arrows showed the door to former coach Manqoba Mngqithi who only managed one win after six rounds of the Premier Soccer League and he left the club two places above relegation zone.

“Abafana Bes’thende have appointed Mark Harrison as their new Head Coach effective immediately.” The club statement said.

The former Stoke City goalkeeper is handed a task to move the Durban based up on the log and he comes back to coach in the top flight football after having stints with Mpumalanga Black Aces and Chippa United who both were relegated under his guidance.

The 52-year old manager has some playing experience in South Africa after playing for Hellenic FC between 1982 and 1984.

Meanwhile, Bloemfontein Celtic has confirmed the departure of their coach Clinton Larsen after a poor start to the season, and the new coach is yet to be confirmed by the club.
