Booth gets one-year Ajax extension



Towering defender Matthew Booth will continue playing at least for another season after he was offered a contract extension by Ajax Cape Town, the club announced on Thursday.

Club chief executive George Comitis confirmed that the Urban Warriors had exercised their option to extend the contract of Booth for a further season.

Booth enjoyed an outstanding season with Ajax Cape Town scoring 5 goals in 17 appearances. Matthew is expected to sign on the dotted line as soon as he returns from a family vacation.

Matthew’s presence and height strengthened Ajax’s defensive aerial power. He played a crucial part in last season’s campaign, not only did he score goals but he made a number of crucial tackles as the last man in the Ajax defence. Matthew made his Ajax Cape Town debut against SuperSport United on November 18, 2011.
