Ajax Cape Town finally end boardroom squabble to sign Booth

2011-11-10 00:00

CAPE TOWN — Ajax Cape Town have announced that they have finally signed former Bafana Bafana centre-back Matthew Booth.

A squabble at boardroom level had delayed the signing of the 34-year-old, who has been training with the team for almost two months and who agreed personal terms with the club some four weeks ago.

Booth has been signed on a contract up to the end of the season, with an option for a further two seasons if he can prove his fitness.

His signing will ease the defensive worries of coach Maarten Stekelenburg to some degree as Ajax seek to get back to winning ways after losing their last three matches in all competitions.

“Matthew is a fantastic player who adds some things that we currently lack in our squad. His presence and height will strengthen our defensive aerial power,” Stekelenburg said of his new signing.
