National First Division side Ajax Cape Town have once again inspired belief in young talent by promoting two 16-year-old’s to the club’s first team.
Ajax, who narrowly missed out on the NFD-PSL play-offs promotion on goal difference last season, released 12 players while making their first two signings with an academy duo.
Ajax announced via their popular media channel last night that Khayelitsha’s Bhongolwethu Siyasi (16) and Phillipy's Asanele Velebayi (16) will be registered as first-team players in the team’s attacking midfield next season.
