Harrison joins Zim side Highlanders


Highlanders have appointed Mark Harrison as their new coach on a two-year contract, with the former Black Leopards coach to take up the post left vacant by Hendrick Pieter de Jong.

De Jong has moved to FC Platinum.

“I am glad to announce that the club has agreed terms with Mark Harrison to fill the position that has been existing in our technical team. Harrison, who is not new to Zimbabwean football is the Highlanders new coach with immediate effect pending a granting of a work permit by the authorities.

“He will be officially unveiled as soon he arrives in the country to take up his duties,” confirmed Highlanders chairman,  Kenneth Mhlophe.

“Considering our philosophy as a club and his style of play, he emerged as the best institutional fit candidate to take up the huge responsibility.”

The Briton last worked in the Castle Lager Premier Soccer League at Harare City last year.

The 59-year-old who has previously worked with Baroka, Bay United and Caps United is now waiting for a work permit to take up his post.
