play against them if the opportunity presents itself. Maybe I can score
against them again. It is just a nice feeling being here [Ajax]," Julies
told the Ajax website.
The Kimberley-born winger has spent a large portion of his career in
the National First Division, where he had been loaned out to several
clubs by Sundowns.
He's thrilled to have the chance to continue his resurgence in the PSL with Ajax after a very brief spell at Chippa.
"I am grateful to finally be an Ajax Cape Town player and I am
grateful to the management for the way they handled the situation. It is
a great club and I am looking forward to doing my best here," he said.
"Things happen so quickly so as a professional you have to be
prepared at all times. I was always prepared for this, I am just hoping
that everything will fall into place and that I can make my debut as
soon as possible. I am just glad everything has worked out."
Kick off is at 19:30.
