Ajax Players who Scored during their official Debut

See also: Soccer Players Who Scored During Their Eredivisie Debut, Youngest Goalscorers Official Match and Youngest Debuts

Below table contains all soccer players for Ajax that scored during their first official game for Ajax.

While composing this list we did not only look at own youth, so it also contains players who played matches, or even scored goals, before in other prof competitions or even the Eredivisie for another club.

Such players, like Ole Tobiasen and Mounir El Hamdaoui, are logically lower on the list that is sorted on age.

For a number of players the date of birth is unknown, these appear at the bottom of the list.

There are certain periods in Ajax' history (especially shortly after World War II and before 1920) during which there is no complete information in our archive when it comes to lineups and sometimes even goalscorers (especially true for Dutch Cup matches). Because of this it is very well possible we miss players in the list, or players appear in the list that should not be there.

Special mentioning of Rinus Michels. With his 18 year and 120 days he is on 10th spot, but he was not just able to score a goal during his debut match, but with 5 (!) goals he played an important role in securing the (8-3) victory that secured the division championship.
