Cape Town - Former Ajax Cape Town and Mamelodi Sundowns winger Keagan Dolly admits that he is saddened by the sudden relegation of the Urban Warriors.

Ajax were found guilty of fielding the ineligible Tendai Ndoro in the recently completed Premiership season and were docked seven log points as a result. 

Having initially finished in 15th, Ajax were set to face Black Leopards and Jomo Cosmos in the promotion/relegation play-offs but were replaced by Platinum Stars, who originally finished bottom before Ajax were docked their points.

Dolly, currently playing for French Ligue 1 side Montpellier, says that his career took flight when he joined the Cape side as a teenager. 

“It’s sad to see what’s happening at Ajax Cape Town,” the 25-year-old said, as quoted by KickOff website.

“Ajax Cape Town had good players like Khama Billiat, Thulani Hlatshwayo, George Maluleka – these are players who are now playing for big teams and doing well.

“As a youngster, I looked up to them and at Ajax, we were like a family, they treated me well.

“I started hanging out with Hlatshwayo, he took me under his wing and showed me how things are done.

“Matthew Booth was also there and my bond with Khama got stronger.

“That’s where everything started for me."
