Gor Mahia's new British coach Kerr expected on Saturday

Gor Mahia’s new coach Briton Dylan Kerr is expected in the country on Saturday, and his first assignment will be to handle the 15-time Kenyan champions against English Premier League side Everton in Dar es Salaam next Thursday.

Gor announced the appointment of the 51-year old Kerr on Wednesday on their official website which indicated that Kerr brings with him a 15-year coaching experience gathered in Africa and beyond.

“Gor Mahia FC is pleased to announce that Dylan Kerr will join the club as Head Coach with the tactician expected to link up with the team on Saturday, 8th July 2017 ahead of the team's departure for Tanzania. The decision to appoint Kerr comes after an executive committee meeting held on Tuesday evening,” read the statement.

Kerr has been attached to English fourth tier side Chesterfield as their under-18 manager. He has previously worked in South Africa and Tanzania with Mpumalanga Black Aces and Simba SC respectively.

Kerr turned out for English clubs Sheffield Wednesday and Leeds United as a left back during his playing days. He started out his coaching career in Vietnam and Scotland.

Gor officials confirmed that they had received 21 applications for the position, including one from Nigerian international Samson Siasia, Portuguese Carlo Visino and Frenchman Didier da Rosa.

Kerr will now assume full coaching duties as former Kenyan international and club legend Zedekiah Otieno reverts back to his position as assistant coach.

K’Ogalo are currently perched on top of the SportPesa Premier League table equal on points with Tusker.

They have, however, failed to win their last four league fixtures, losing to Sofapaka and drawing against Ulinzi Stars, Posta Rangers and Thika United.
