Former Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr gets new job in South Africa

Just days after quitting in a huff, immediate former Gor Mahia coach Dylan Kerr has switched allegiance to a team not many K’Ogalo fans will be happy to associate with.

This for the simple reason that his new club bears a similar name – well, almost similar – to Gor Mahia’s sworn enemies AFC Leopards.

On Monday the Englishman was unveiled at South African Premier Soccer League side Black Leopards as their new manager.


Kerr, who resigned as Gor coach last Thursday, replaces Joel Masutha who threw in the towel last week due poor results.

The Englishman led Gor Mahia to two league titles during his 16-month reign – winning 51 matches, 16 draws and 12 defeats in 79 games.

Black Leopards, founded in 1983, were promoted to the topflight this season and are currently placed 14th in the 16-team table with nine points after 11 matches. They host their games at 40,000-seater Thohoyandou stadium.
