Golden Arrows

Nickname:
Abafana Bes'thende
Founded:
1943

Lamontville Golden Arrows managed to retain their status in the Absa Premiership during the 2015/16 season following their return from the National First Division (NFD).

The Durban-based side narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 2016/17 MTN8 Cup after finishing ninth in the league - only behind eighth-placed SuperSport United on goal-difference.

This is despite having changed coaches towards just before mid-season, with Clinton Larsen replacing Serame Letsoaka who had been with Abafana Bes'thende for only six months.

Former Bloemfontein Celtic and Maritzburg United coach Larsen had some time to assess his Arrows squad during pre-season ahead of the 2016/17 season.

Abafana Bes'thende were always expected to be very busy during the PSL Transfer Window period as they nine players on-loan during 2015/16 campaign. Those players returned to their parent clubs when the season ended.

However, the KwaZulu-Natal side managed to retain the services of Kudakwashe Mahachi. The winger re-joined Mamelodi Sundowns on a permanent deal.

The club announced that they signed Bloemfontein Celtic forwards Vuyani Ntanga and Lerato Lamola who joined Abafana Bes'thende in a swap deal involving Deon Hotto who moved to Phunya Sele Sele.

Wayde Jooste, Limbikani Mzava, Cliffton Miheso and Lee Langeveldt were all confirmed as new Arrows signings prior to the new season.
