Highlands Appoint Freese
National First Division outfit, Highlands Park have appointed former Platinum Stars head coach, Allan Freese, as their chief mentor for next season.
In fact, the Escort-born man is back working under the same director, Larry Brookstone, who ran HP Silver Stars (the fore-runner of Dikwena).
Over a decade ago, Freese together with Owen da Gama, were instrumental in helping Stars win promotion through the various amateur divisions, so Brookstone is obviously delighted that the 58-year-old has returned to his fold.
“I’m very happy,” he told Soccer Laduma. “We like to work with our own people, that’s the culture of our club.
“Years ago, when we decided to have seniors again, Alan was the coach who promoted us from Castle League to Vodacom.”
Thierry Mulonzo and Les Grobler, two other long-serving assistant coaches have been retained but their precise positions have not been confirmed.
