JOHANNESBURG – Ajax Cape Town began life in the National First Division (NFD) with a bang following a 2-1 away win to Jomo Cosmos at Vosloorus Stadium.
The Cape Town side will be camping in the second tier division this season following the Tendai Ndoo registration saga that hit them at the end of last campaign.
The Urban Warriors know that the NFD is a jungle – hence they went all out during the transfer window as they brought in some seasoned campaigners including Raymond Monama, Sibusiso Khumalo and Shu-aib Walters.
However, it was young Thendo Mukumela who made the starting line-up here for the Urban Warriors. Mukumela is set to replace former skipper Mosa Lebusa in the centre-back role.
