winger filling the gap

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.
