Cape Town - Veteran striker Nathan Paulse has committed his future to Ajax Cape Town after putting pen to paper on a one-year contract extension with the Cape club.

The 34-year-old will stay with the Urban Warriors for at least one more season, in what is his third spell with the Absa Premiership club.

Paulse started his career at Ajax, breaking into the first-team reckoning in 2000, before making the switch to Avendale Athletico the following year.

However, he returned to Ajax after just one season, racking up almost 140 appearances and scoring 27 times. spells at Hammarby, Platinum Stars and SuperSport United followed for the once-capped Bafana Bafana international.

He returned to Ajax for a third spell in 2013 and helped the Urban Warriors to the MTN8 title in September last year.

"I'm excited to have extended my stay at Ajax for another year. I feel that I still have a lot to offer," Paulse told the club's official website.

"It's been a good few years for me and I look forward to helping the team more next season.

"We have to work harder and set new goals. Our ambition has to grow as a team. I'm glad that I'll be part of that journey of this club once again in the new season.

"Everybody knows that I love this club and that I'm proud to play for Ajax. Next season, I would like to keep improving.

"I have the same hunger and ambition as I've had as a 18-year-old boy; I think it showed when we won the MTN8. I want to continue to help the club grow and win more trophies.

"Where the young players are concerned, helping them improve and grow mind-sets and attitudes are the things I feel I can still add off the field as well.

"I feel I have an important role to play off the field at the club as well, which keeps me inspired, humble and hungry for more."
