Cape Town - Ajax Cape Town have confirmed the capture of former Cape Town Spurs head coach Mich D'Avray, who will join Roger de Sa in the dugout for next season.

D'Avray will add vast international and local expertise to the already impressive technical team at the Urban Warriors, which includes the likes of Roger De Sa, head of youth development Stanley Menzo and assistant coach Vladislav Heric already at the club.

"We have had ongoing discussions with Mich to return to Cape Town for the past 18 months and are very pleased to announce our latest acquisition," commented CEO Ari Efstathiou.

"The technical team now at the club, has a huge wealth of experience including South African, Dutch, English and Serbian influence, as players, coaches and managers

"We have brought together a technical team that has the ability to produce short and long-term results at Ajax Cape Town."

D'Avray 's coaching career started at Moroka Swallows in 1992 before he made the move to Cape Town Spurs, where he won a league and cup double in the 1994/95 season.

His impressive resume includes being at the helm of the South African under-23 squad for four years before leaving South Africa to take over the reins at Perth Glory in Australia, where he clinched back-to-back league titles in 2003 and 2004.

He returned to South Africa in 2008 and spent six years at Bloemfontein Celtic.

"The club's vision of consistently achieving success, including winning the league, required that I beef up the team around me. I feel by bringing in Mich, I have further strengthened the technical department which will enable the club to compete at the highest level," added De Sa.
