It would be the first time that a different team would clinch the trophy in four years, after the young Urban Warriors won the title three times in succession from 2011 to 2013.

Youth team coach Maahier Davids was pleased with his squads showing despite finishing in a disappointing seventh position.

“It’s a disappointment that we didn’t win, I think if you compare us to any other team we are the better team. We have only conceded one goal which was a mistake from our player and that was the end of our tournament,” he said on the Ajax Cape Town official website.

“In the U17 league our boys beat all the top teams, but in tournament football one mistake can be fatal. It’s a huge learning curve for this relatively young squad.

I hope they are able to learn and grown from this and become better players in the future. Overall, I was very happy with the performance of all the players, in particular Achmat Ceres and Grand Margarmat who really showed their ability.” Davids said.
