Stellenbosch Football Club has taken a significant step in securing the future of its home-grown talents by extending the contracts of Jayden Adams, Kyle Jurgens, and Devon Titus, as officially announced by the club. All three players have emerged from Stellenbosch's highly regarded junior ranks, with Adams earning a call-up to the national team squad for recent World Cup qualifiers against Benin and Rwanda.
Meanwhile, Titus showcased his goal-scoring prowess, contributing to the Winelands club's qualification for the Carling Knockout final. Both Adams and Titus, aged 22, have become integral components of the Stellenbosch starting lineup.
While the club has intentionally kept the specific contract lengths confidential, they emphasized that the players have committed to "long term deals." Kyle Jurgens, at 20 years old, has inked his first professional contract. Although he had limited opportunities on the right side of defense last season, his impressive full debut in the Nedbank Cup upset against Mamelodi Sundowns signaled his potential.
Rob Benadie, Chief Executive Officer of Stellenbosch Football Club, expressed immense pride in the commitment of Jayden Adams, hailing him as the first youth player to transition from the academy to a professional contract in 2020. Adams has not only become a regular in the first team but has also earned international recognition with the South African national team.
Devon Titus, in a separate statement, expressed gratitude to the coaching staff and management for their support. Having been part of Stellenbosch FC since the early stages of his career, Titus sees the contract extension as an exciting prospect and hopes to contribute significantly to the team's success in the seasons to come. The young player is eager to continue aiding the team in its pursuit of silverware and looks forward to a long and fruitful future with the club.
