HIGHLANDERS' coaching target for the 2015 Castle Premiership season Mark Harrison has joined South Africa’s National First Division side Black Leopards, dealing a big blow to the Bulawayo giants.

Bosso are looking to appoint a foreign coach to replace Zambian coach Kelvin Kaindu who left in September.

Harrison, former AmaZulu coach Craig Roslee, Bloemfontein Celtic's German coach Ernst Middendorp and former Maritzburg United coach Clinton Larsen have also been mentioned together with another Zambian Tennant Chilumba.

Chilumba is not new to Zimbabwe having previously coached Hwange and FC Platinum. He is now in charge of Power Dynamos in his homeland and finished the season in second place.

Bosso chief executive officer Ndumiso Gumede hinted that Highlanders could employ a foreign coach saying he had received an application from a South African gaffer.

"I have an application from a South African coach, but obviously they would not want me to tell you they have applied," he said.

"I actually have 10 applications. It is open and it is going to be a long process. We were not anticipating that our coach would go.

"Chances are high that we are hiring a foreign coach after the departure of Kelvin Kaindu."

Highlanders will hold elections in January where the incumbent chairman Peter Dube is seeking a second three-year term in office together with committee member Charles Moyo.

Secretary general Andrew Tapela has served two terms and is not eligible for re-election constitutionally.

Dube was in Harare on Thursday together with his executive committee to meet their principal sponsors. They were also expected to present their 2014 season review report where they were in the media for the better part of the year for all the wrong reasons.

Charles Sibanda and Joel Ngodzo were given written warnings, Innocent Mapuranga was stripped of the captaincy and Njabulo Ncube was docked two weeks wages following incidents of misbehaviour on the eve of the TM Pick and Pay Challenge Cup against Dynamos on September 5.

Sibanda was also dropped from the Hwange match which they lost 2-1 after refusing to be substituted in a home tie against Chicken Inn which they also lost 1-0 at Hartsfield.

Fans were not left out as they threw missiles and barricaded the team’s dressing room after the team had lost 1-3 to ZPC Kariba at Hartsfield, a result which eventually led to the resignation of Kaindu.

As of Monday, about 70 club members had written a petition calling for an extra-ordinary general meeting in December instead of the New Year.
