Cape Town – Ajax Cape Town have announced that Tashreeq Morris signed a new contract with the club, which will see him stay at the club for the next four seasons.

According to the Urban Warriors website, Morris joined the Ajax youth academy in 2005 and soon started showing just why the Ajax Cape Town scouts brought him to Ikamva.

“It’s a good feeling knowing that I’ll be at Ajax for even longer now,” commented Morris.

“This club has helped me a lot from a very young age and I’m doing what I can to repay the faith everyone at the club has shown in me.

“I want to thank the management at the club for this opportunity to renew my contract once again.

“The last 2 seasons have been a blessing for me. I know that I’ll have many more great seasons with the club.”

The 21-year-old striker formed part of the Ajax Cape Town’s Metropolitan U19 Premier Cup winning team as well as the featuring in the Copa Amsterdam tournament and impressed everyone with his massive work ethic, while continuously finding the back of the net.

Morris also formed part of a fantastic group of players who came through the club’s Youth Academy, who went on to cement a regular place in the first team, along with the likes of Abbubaker Mobara, Travis Graham, Bantu Mzwakali, Riyaad Norodien, Jody February and Mosa Lebusa.

He made his league debut as a substitute against Kaizer Chiefs in 2013 and scored the winning goal in a 1-0 victory at Cape Town Stadium, just minutes after coming on from the bench.

Morris went on to feature in majority of the team’s matches last season and played a big role in helping the team get to the 2015 Nedbank Cup Final.

A great reward was on the end of it as Morris received the Nedbank Cup Young Player of the Tournament Award.
