Hartog joins Ajax Cape Town

“Ajax Cape Town are delighted to have acquired the services of Ashley Hartog until the end on the 2015/16 Absa Premiership season,” read a statement released by the club.

Hartog, who has previously turned out for Sint Truidense (Belgium), SuperSport United and Maritzburg United in the past, had started training with the Urban Warriors two weeks ago, before earning himself a short-term deal.

The 33-year-old revealed his delight in signing with Ajax, and is looking forward to integrating himself into Roger de Sa’s youthful team.

“It’s been nice to train with these players for the two weeks before signing, seeing that I know most of the players here which made it very easy for me to fit in,” he says.

“It’s very exciting to actually sign a contract with Ajax Cape Town because I was here before and it didn’t work out. To sign here at my age is a big thing for me. The team is doing great with so many young players, even the recent CAF trip to Angola had a lot of youngsters which is great to see.

“For a more experienced player to come in and settle in with them is also a great feeling.”

Ajax travel to Polokwane City in their next PSL fixture on Saturday afternoon.
