Former Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr was on Monday appointed as the new head coach of South Africa’s topflight side Black Leopards.

The Englishman parted ways with Gor Mahia after handing in his resignation letter on Thursday last week.

Kerr led the 17-time Kenyan champions to the group stages of caf confederation cup last season; unfortunately, they were bundled out of the tournament.

The 51-year-old Briton also guided Gor Mahia in winning the Kenya Premier League title in 2017 and 2018.

Kerr’s last assignment at the club was their historic friendly match against Everton at the Goodison Park on November 6 where the Kenyan giants were humbled 4-0 by the English Premier League side.

Black Leopards who were promoted to topflight this season are ranked at position 14 with 9 points having played 11 matches.

Kerr replaces Joel Masutha who willingly resigned last week after the team’s poor performance.

Meanwhile, Gor Mahia is preparing for the new season that kicks off on December 8 with CAF confederation cup tier against Malawi’s side Nyasa Bullets.
