Former Gor Mahia gaffer Dylan Kerr joins Baroka FC

Former Gor Mahia gaffer Dylan Kerr joins Baroka FC

Baroka FC have officially appointed former Gor Mahia gaffer Dylan Kerr as their new head coach.

Kerr returns to South Africa for the first time since leaving Black Leopards  at the end of last season. 

According to the Polokwane-based club, Kerr has signed a three-year deal. 

Baroka took to social media to unveil the former Gor Mahia  tactician as their new coach, taking over from Wedson Nyirenda who resigned last week. 

The 52-year-old mentor first arrived in Africa in 2015 when Tanzanian giants Simba SC roped him in as their manager. 

However, it was at Kenyan side Gor Mahia where he really made a name for himself after winning two Kenyan Premier League titles with them and guided them to the group stage of the Caf Confederation Cup. 

Kerr then moved to Black Leopards where he was in charge of only 21 matches across all competitions. Article continues below

He won six, drew six and lost nine of the 21 matches before ending his relationship with the club prematurely in May 2019. 

Kerr will be expected to hit the ground running and help Baroka improve their position on the log in the remaining 15 league games. 

Baroka are placed 14th on the PSL standings with just 14 points from their opening 15 matches.
