The first match was played at 10:30 and saw Ruzaigh Gamildien play his first friendly match as an Ajax Cape Town player.

According to the club's website, the former Bloemfontein Celtic midfielder had a great game and rounded it off with a well-taken goal.

Some of the younger players from our U19 team got their opportunity to showcase their progress in front of head coach Roger De Sa and assistant coach Ian Taylor.

The likes of Aiden Jenniker, Olwethu Nguye, Noah Sadaoui and Jody February played among the U19’s and led the younger players  with some good performances. The match ended in a 2-1 win to the Urban Warriors.
