News landing on the Siya crew’s desk is that the contract Arthur Bartman has signed with Golden Arrows is a short-term contract, with a view to extending it at the end of the season.
The veteran goalkeeper announced his retirement from the game last season and went to join Maritzburg United as a goalkeeper coach. However, he received a call from Arrows coach Mark Harrison, who convinced him to come out of retirement and help the Durban side move out of the relegation zone.
The crew previously reported that he was definitely joining the club, but at that stage the details of his deal were sketchy, and it can now be revealed that the former Kaizer Chiefs goalkeeper has penned a six-month deal.
Furthermore our sources have revealed that the club has earmarked him for a future role in the technical team. It has been mentioned that if he does well and still wants to continue playing, he will most likely get an extension to his deal, but the immediate task for all parties concerned is to save the team from relegation.
