Cape Town - Golden Arrows have parted ways with head coach Clinton Larsen following a run of just two wins in their last 16 games in all competitions.

Arrows looked to have turned the corner after ending their winless streak with a 2-1 victory over Kaizer Chiefs at the start of December and a 2-2 draw with league leaders Bidvest Wits almost two weeks later.

However, the year ended on a sour note for Abafana Bes'thende as they slumped to a 2-0 defeat against Durban rivals AmaZulu at King Goodwill Zwelithini Stadium.

"Lamontville Golden Arrows would like to announce that we have parted ways with head Coach Clinton Larsen‚ by mutual agreement between both parties‚" read a statement on the club's official website.

"After careful consideration‚ both the club and Clinton agree that this is in the best interest of both parties for the relationship to end with immediate effect.

"Clinton has been totally professional in his approach to his work and in parting ways‚ we wish him all the best for his future.

"Clinton responded‚ by sincerely thanking the Chairlady‚ management‚ technical staff and players at the club‚ for the time that he spent at the helm of a young and exciting team and wished them well for the rest of the season."

Next up for Arrows is a Premiership clash with Maritzburg United at Princess Magogo Stadium on 6 January.
