Stellenbosch has announced the signing of youth international, Dejeah Ah Shene.
The 18-year-old goalkeeper joins Stellies from Ubuntu Cape Town. “The way that the Stellenbosch F.C. first team gives players opportunities in the PSL was really a motivating factor, and left me to think that I could also be there one day because I know I have the potential to fulfil that dream,” Ah Shene said.
“Seeing the style of play that Stellenbosch plays compared to other PSL teams also encouraged me. The team likes moving the ball around and that’s the way I like to play, because I like building up from the back.”
While on the books of Ubuntu Cape Town, Ah Shene worked with current Stellenbosch goalkeeping coach, Pernell McKop.
“Before I joined, Coach P would always message me, check up on me and give me advice. He always wanted me here and that also boosted me, and I know I can grow and develop my game even further under him because he’s a good coach.
“With that kind of support, I can only become a better player. When a coach supports you, it motivates you even further and you don’t want to disappoint them, so I just want to give 100% for them and for the club all of the time.”
