Former Bafana Bafana international Matthew Booth is
determined to play his part in turning around the fortunes of South
According to the Football411 website, the former Ajax Cape Town, Mamelodi Sundowns and Bidvest Wits
defender announced his retirement two weeks ago, after a career which
spanned nearly two decades.
The 37-year-old will not, however, be lost to the game as he is already doing his bit to give something back.
"I have started the Booth Education Sports Trust and I am working with schools in the Gauteng region," he told the PSL website.
"I have brought some former and current players on board. It’s
easy to criticise the development structures in this country, so I
thought I would try and do something to make a difference."
In addition, the Cape Town-born Booth will also be studying a BA
degree through Unisa, while also doing some television work for the SABC
and some writing for the Sowetan newspaper.
