The 33-year-old striker challenged for a place with young speedster Tashreeq Morris throughout the 2014/15 season but was given the nod for the big games towards the end.

In the late comeback win over Supersport United in the Nedbank Cup semi-final the lanky striker was given the man-of-the-match award.

The official website of Ajax Cape Town announced the extension of Paulse’s contract at midday on Wednesday.

“We are extremely pleased to announce that we have signed Nathan Paulse on a new 1 year contract, with the option of extending for a further year, following a successful season with the club.”

The player looked forward to next season after signing the contract: "I’m happy with the new deal I’ve gotten after long talks with the club. I’m excited to help the club achieve more, coming off this past season, which was so successful for us," said Paulse.

"We’ve established the club as a top eight club in the league again and I’ll do my part to help the team achieve more success."

Coach Roger De Sa talked about the impact that the veteran striker makes for his side.

"Nathan’s contribution is immense to the team," said De Sa.

"The work that he does on both ends of the field is massive. When you play against Nathan, you start to realise his value more than when you play with him.

"He’s one of those players you would rather have on your team than against you. He gives us an option when we can’t play."

Paulse is currently in his fourth spell with the Urban Warriors after making his debut for them during the 2000/1 season.
