Milton Ncube joins Ajax

HARARE - Milton Ncube is the latest Zimbabwean to join the great trek to the South African Absa Premiership after Ajax Cape Town announced yesterday they have signed the Highlanders players.

Ncube, who turns 27 in July, has signed a two-year contract with the Urban Warriors with the option of another year.

The versatile Zimbabwean, who can play in defence or upfront, caught the eye of the Urban Warriors during this year’s African Nations Championship (Chan) tournament held in South Africa.

Ncube was part of the Warriors squad that reached the semi-finals of the competition for home-based African players before losing on penalties to eventual winners Libya.  

The Ajax Cape Town chairman Ari Efstathiou said: “I can confirm that Ajax Cape Town have signed the Zimbabwean, Milton Ncube.

“We signed the player during the 2014 Chan tournament; he signed a two-year contract with a two year option.”

Ncube is set to join his new teammates in Cape Town in June for their pre-season training.

This development will be a huge blow for Bosso, who are also set to lose winger Kuda Mahachi who will be joining his new club Mamelodi Sundowns at the same period.

Ncube has been an influential figure for Bosso since arriving from Motor Action at the start of the 2012 season.

With his roots established at the defunct Agatha Shaneti Soccer Academy, Ncube is a versatile footballer, who is comfortable at left back, in midfield or upfront.

Due to his versatility, the Zimbabwean will be a great addition to coach Roger de Sa’s squad that also boast of a number of rising Super Diski stars like Keegan Dolly who won the scooped the Absa Young Footballer of the Year award at the weekend.

At Ikamva, Ncube will join fellow Zimbabwean Simba Sithole, who was signed by the Urban Warriors at the start of the year.

Sithole also impressed for Zimbabwe at the Chan tournament and Ajax quickly rushed to get his signature as other Super Diski clubs were interested in his signature.
