Cape Town - Golden Arrows coach Clinton Larsen has penned a two-year contract extension with the Premiership club.

The 45-year-old joined Abafana Bes'thende midway through last term after making a straight swap with Serame Letsoaka, who moved to Bloemfontein Celtic.

Larsen guided Arrows to a ninth-placed finish in their first season back in the top flight, having gained promotion the previous year.

The Durban outfit are rebuilding after a handful of on-loan players left, including Gladwin Shitolo, Ryan Chapman, Mwape Musonda, Mahlatse Makudubela, Gabadinho Mhango and Rodney Ramagalela.

"I'm very happy to have concluded [a deal] with the team for a further two years," Larsen told The Sowetan.

"Initially I signed for six months because I wanted to get a feel for the club first and not commit myself long term before understanding how the club works.

"I'm happy with the relationship that I have forged with the boss, Mato Madlala. All the boxes were ticked and I was very happy to commit myself to the team."
