Matthews, a product of the Ajax Cape Town development system, has been in a dispute with the Urban Warriors and the player’s representatives, European-based On Target.

Last year Ajax CEO, Ari Efstathiou, went into detail with the Siya crew, explaining the club’s bursary system, which is part of their youth system. At the time Matthews was linked with a move abroad and was seeking his clearance from SAFA, while Efstathiou had explained that the player had an agreement with Ajax, as per their bursary system.

Matthews has now surfaced at Ajax’s cross-city rivals, Cape Town City. He was spotted at training today, where he was put through the paces by McCarthy. It is yet to be confirmed if the club is looking to put pen to paper with the 17-year-old attacker.

Development is a foundation. I like and very happy to give a chance to the young talent players. I so wish CT CITY can do something like TRIALS, Invite and send SCOUTS to rural areas and especially in GEORGE. We have good talented players that can bring change and add value to the club in the field of play. For more info contact Me "Sbahle07" on 083 77 22 551

lol Bennie is obsessed about coloureds, but i don't blame coloureds are good players but i;ve noticed a little obsession, he's always letting go and getting new players cape town city will soon be destroyed he should learn from his elders pitso and hunt, making too many changes to a already good squadis not good, one star player, a player?to replace those who are leaving and promotion of a young star should be good enough
