Chiefs confirm Parker stay

Parker is set to continue his stay at Naurena beyond the current season after siging a new one-year deal, with Chiefs adding a further option of another year.

The 32-year-old, who will be turning a year older on March 16, will now reach at least the nine-year mark with the club, since arriving from FC Twente in July 2011.

'Die Hond' has been an ever-present as one of the senior members of the squad, with only Itumeleng Khune having been around for longer.

Meanwhile, Amajita youngster Njabulo Blom has also been handed a four-year first team contract, joining Happy Mashiane and Nkosingiphile Ngcobo amongst the youngest players in the team.
