Sedwyn George joined the Ikamva based side on Friday, 9 June and he looks like an excellent investment for the future.

The 25-year-old scored 20 goals in 27 games in the NFD last season.  He hails from Eastwood in Pietermaritzburg, having played down the years for Local Pirates/Glenville and Maritzburg United’s development teams.

Here's what George had to say about choosing Ajax Cape Town:

“I’ve heard of Ajax Cape Town’s facilities and to see it for the first time I thought ‘wow I’m overseas here’ – that was the first thing that came to mind,” said George to Ajax Cape Town's official site.

“Growing up I’ve always wanted to play for Ajax Cape Town because I know it is a club that has a good structure, and this is a place where I can grow as a player, work on my technique and develop even further as a person/player on and off the field of play.

“Last season was just amazing, I pushed myself to the limit and I expect the same from myself here at Ajax Cape Town,” he concluded.
