He returned to Interwood before playing in the Conference National for Hayes & Yeading United in the 2011–12 season. Ajala has also had trials with Brentford and Newcastle United.

He was awarded the number 35 shirt and made his professional début for the club on 16 April 2013 in a 0-1 home defeat to Birmingham City, a match in which City were also relegated. He came on as an 89th minute substitute for Neil Kilkenny.[4]
