At Erica Park, Cape Town

IT is official, AJAX Cape Town are now level with Hellenic as far as winning the Metropolitan Under-19

Cup is concerned.

This after the young Urban Warriors overcame Mamelodi Sundowns with a 1-0 victory, a courtesy goal of

Craig Harker in the early minutes of this grand-finale which was played this afternoon in front of the

capacity crowd at the Erica Park in Belhar, Cape Town.

Ajax took the game to the Tshwane based side from the first whistle to the last and they deserve this

win which has offered them their sixth title dream and the second clubs from Cape Town to have won the

competition half-dozen times as their fellow Cape side, Hellenic.

Earlier on the day Glendene beat another Gauteng side BidVest Wits 1-0 in the 3rd and 4th position play-

offs.

 

Said Ajax coach Maahir Davids after the match: “The fact that we were in the final again underlines how

serious and how the boys have prepared. This victory is not about me but about the players.”
