Cape Town - Black Aces goalkeeper coach Calvin Marlin has signed a new three year deal with the club ahead of their relocation to Cape Town next season.

The 40-year-old has played for Michau Warriors, Cape Town Spurs, Seven Stars, Ajax Cape Town, Supersport United and Mamelodi Sundowns in his long and illustrious career, before joining Aces in 2013.

He was part of Bafana Bafana's 2002 World Cup squad and was South Africa's first choice shot stopper at the 2006 African Nations Cup in Egypt.

New Amazayoni owner John Comitis, who worked with Marlin as a player at Ajax Cape Town between 1999 and 2003, is happy to have retained the services of the Port Elizabeth born keeper.

"I can confirm that Calvin Marlin has signed a new three-year deal with the club. Calvin will be relocating to Cape Town," Comitis said in a statement.

"He will be arriving in Cape Town early next week to be here for the arrival of the squad for pre-season.

"We are delighted to have such a professional on board with us. I have worked with Calvin before as a player at Ajax and his work ethic and enthusiasm is a big plus for the club. Our puzzle is slowly taking shape."
