Ajax Cape Town goalkeeper Jody February feels a renewed sense of optimism at Ikamva as the Premiership side begin their pre-season training.
After an indifferent 2016/17 season where the Urban Warriors missed out on a top-eight finish by two points, a technical shake-up followed with Boebie Solomons arriving to assist head coach Stanley Menzo is his first full-season.
And February, who kept eight clean sheets in 24 games last season feels the dynamic coaching duo will bring all their experience to the table to develop the young side and integrate the new arrivals quickly.
“Having a coach like Stanley Menzo is motivational for us as keepers because he was one of the best during his time and his knowledge rubs off us,” the 21-year-old told the club’s official website.
“We also have coach Boebie in the technical team and he comes with wealth of experience which will help the team a lot.
“It’s always good being back at training. We also have new players added to the squad and the quicker they adjust the better for us.
“All the guys in the team are ready for the new season to start.”
