Sameehg Doutie has been inspirational for Ajax Cape Town.
While many thought the Urban Warriors would struggle after the talented but wayward Mkhanyiseli Siwahla left the team, the Mitchells Plain-born winger has done well to make the right midfield position his own.

Q: Any embarrassing moments on or off the field?
A: I was playing for a local club called Scotche Kloof and I came one-on-one with their keeper. I did well to place the ball past him, but because it was raining the ball got stuck in a water puddle, but I started celebrating, not aware that it was not in until the fans pointed out that it was not in. That was embarrassing.
Q: Has a defender said anything negative to you to try to put you off the game?
A: Not really. Warren Bishop talks a lot, but I just ignore him.
