Harrison named new Arrows coach



Mark Harrison has been swiftly installed as the new coach of Lamontville Golden arrows, the club said on Monday.

He replaces Manqoba Mngqithi, who resigned abruptly on Saturday in spite of Arrows’ success the night before in the first round of the Telkom Knockout away against Bidvest Wits.

Harrison handed in his resignation as coach of Chippa United immediately after their 1-1 draw in the National First Division at Thanda Royal Zulu on Sunday and left for Durban.

“Presently, Mark is one of the most qualified and experienced coaches in South Africa,” said Arrows in a statement that failed to give any details of his terms.

But it does represent a return to the top flight after he last season narrowly failed to keep Chippa United up.

In 2011 he also came in at the death of the season to try and save Mpumalanga Black Ace from relegation but did not succeed.

He is a qualified Uefa A licensed coach and began his coaching career in Britain at Bristol City before moving to Everton, Stafford Rangers and Oxford United.

He was also the Bangladesh National Head Coach in the early 2000’s before returning to South Africa to coach at FC Fortune. After a spell coaching in the Maldives, Harrison has been back in South Africa.

In the NFD he also spent several months at African Warriors.
