Zimbabwe Premier Soccer League side Highlanders have appointed England-born Mark Harrison as their new head coach on a two-year deal.

The 59-year-old coach replaces Hendrikus Pieter De Jongh who has since joined FC Platinum after tendering his resignation ahead of his move.

Confirming the news, Highlanders executive chairman Kenneth Mhlophe said Harrison will join the team pending the approval of a Zimbabwe work permit.

“I am glad to announce that the club has agreed to terms with Mark Harrison to fill the position that has been existing in our technical team. Harrison will be officially unveiled as soon as he arrives in the country to take up his duties,” Mhlophe said in a statement.

“He will work with the existing club technical structures and general staff, which includes juniors, developmental team, and the first team coaches.”

Harrison’s credentials include being a goalkeeper for English premiership side, Stoke City, and coaching Oxford United, Stafford Rangers and Everton as well as Mpumalanga Black Aces and African Warriors before his spell with Chippa United in South Africa and later with CAPS United and Harare City in Zimbabwe.

“We would like to welcome Mark, and wish him all the best here at Highlanders. I would also like to thank in advance our sponsors NetOne, partners Nyaradzo, members, fans and all other stakeholders for the support that you will give Harrison as he begins a new journey with the club,” adds Mhlophe’s statement.

Highlander finished the recently concluded Castle Lager Premier Soccer League in the sixth position with 46 points, and now have embarked on a massive recruitment ahead of the new season.
