"Andries Ulderink will write his name in Ajax Cape Town's history should he lead the team in winning the GladAfrica Championship", Efstathiou said.
"In addition, he will be the only Dutch coach to ever lift any silverware at Ajax Cape Town.
"He sacrificed 18 months of his career to assist Ajax Cape Town to fight their way out the NFD.
"Being away from his family, and campaigning in a notoriously difficult league has been no easy task. He is a true professional and we have no doubt in his commitment to finishing the season as Champions."
