Harrison joins Township Rollers

HARARE - Mark Harrison was yesterday unveiled as head coach of Botswana BeMobile Premiership side Township Rollers after resigning from CAPS United.

Harrison replaces Zimbabwean coach Mandida Ndlovu after the former Highlanders player resigned from that position in April this year following a fallout with the club’s fans.

The Englishman, who has a nomadic reputation, flew out of the country yesterday morning after dumping United on Monday to finalise the deal with the Gaborone-based side.

Township Rollers confirmed the development in a statement on the club’s website.

“Township Rollers FC is delighted to announce that Mr. Mark Harrison has been appointed as our club’s new head coach,” read the statement.

“Harrison, aged 54, has a Uefa “A” License and a Diploma in Football Management, and has been involved in full time Professional Football for 38 years.

“Having played for the top level leagues in UK and SA, he has also coached at all levels across the world. With vast amount of knowledge and experience as an International head coach, he has also been exposed to many different backgrounds and cultures.

“Rollers have entered into a 1 year short term contract with him, (performance based) renewable for additional 2 years. This appointment is subject to the approval of Work and Resident Permits from the Department of Labour and Immigration.

“We warmly welcome Mr. Mark Harrison to Township Rollers FC and whole-heartedly wish him all the very best as he takes charge of the Mighty Blue Ship to sail it towards glory.”
