Dutch Competition

Ajax started very weak in the First Division West I. Ajax won its first game only after having lost 4 and drawn once and had to wait until match 11 before the second win. Afterwards it went better and Ajax played itself out of the relegation zone. Ajax was able to win four of the last seven matches and ended in 8th spot 11 points behind division champion Sparta. Sparta was unable to play a significant role in the champions competition, that was won by PSV.

Beker

There was no Dutch Cup competition during this season.

Lineup

After the departure of Wim Anderiesen and Ger van der Meer Ajax had to fit in some new players and it took a while before the right formation was found: Jan de Boer (goalkeeper), Hennie Windt and Dolf van Kol (defense), Henk Anderiesen, Joop van de Puttelaar and Theo Schetters (midfield and stopper spil), Jan de Natris, Wim Volkers, Piet van Deyck, Piet Strijbosch, and Henk Twelker (attack). Unknown who was the captain, possibly Dolf van Kol. Unknown why Joop Martens (7) dit not play all matches, possibly due to injury, but it could also be he was the victim of the poor season start. Jan de Boer was replaced with Jan Becker (2) early in the season and later with Gerrit Keizer (4) who made a very good impression. Also the following players played official matches: Bob ten Have (12), Cor Jurriaans (7), Van Engelen (4), Ben Vogel (4), Wim de Bois (3), Piet Vunderink (3), Wim Hangard (2), Wim Ingenbleek (2), Eddy Hamel (1), Gerard Krooshof (1), Moorman (1) and Wim Smit (1).

Coach

Jack Reynolds was hired again as trainer of Ajax. In between his periods trainer for Ajax, Jack Reynolds had been training Blauw-Wit.

Frans Couton

In July Frans Couton was seriously injured in a traffic accident.

General Meeting

During the annual meeting Ajax decided to hire Jack Reynolds again as trainer. Ajax also decided not to move. There were rumours that both Ajax and Blauw-Wit would start playing their matches in the new Olympic Stadium. There was no mentioning of the new board.

Lineups

At the start of the season it was reported in newspapers that Wim Anderiesen had left Ajax (it seemed he had to play for police club APGS now that he had become a policeman), that his brother took his place as Spil, and that Krooshof was a new defender (just before the first match it became clear Krooshof would only be eligible to play for Ajax from October onwards). It was also reported that Hamel sustained a knee injury in service. Furthermore it was mentioned in reports after the first match that Van der Meer had left Ajax and that Van Kol did not play due to a problem between him and the board.

New Location?

Early 1929 Ajax received notice that the fields would soon no longer be available because of extensions of the city. The expectation was that Ajax would have to find a new location before the start of 1929-30.

Frans Rutte

On March 10 Frans Rutte passed away as the result of a pneumonia.

Gerrit Keizer

When Ajax started winning some matches at the end of the season one of the losing clubs, VUC, asked the Dutch Soccer Association to investigate whether Gerrit Keizer, who replaced De Boer in several matches, was eligible to play. The 18 year old Gerrit Keizer was at that time goalkeeper of Ajax III and already several years member of Ajax, but also stayed in Engeland on several occassions and played soccer there. The regulations at that time were that if Gerrit Keizer would have played any official matches in England, Ajax would have had to ask the Dutch Soccer Association for approval before letting him play. Soon after this request from VUC Ajax made clear that Gerrit Keizer never played any official matches in England.
