AMSTERDAM, May 11- Ajax marked Mother’s Day in the Netherlands by walking out onto the pitch accompanied by their mums on Sunday.

Second placed Ajax, who hosted Cambuur at their Amsterdam ArenA in the Eredivisie, came up with the heart warming move as a pre-match gesture.

The players emerged from the dressing room to greet their mums before walking out of the tunnel alongside them.

It was an idea which was warmly received by fans of the club with many of the mums clearly moved by the occasion.

The Dutch title has already been wrapped up by PSV with Ajax comfortable with an eight-point gap in second place.

The Cambuur players, who may have felt left out without their mums also present, find themselves in mid-table.

Viktor Fischer netted a pair of goals for Ajax to lead the team to a 3-0 win over Cambuur at the Amsterdam Arena on Sunday.

With Ajax already assured of second place, the team took a bit to get going on Sunday, but Fischer finally opened the scoring in the 57th minute before adding a second goal five minutes later.

Lasse Schone capped the scoring for the hosts seven minutes from time, while Cambuur offered little resistance as the club has already secured its place in the Eredivisie for next season.

Champions PSV Eindhoven collected their 28th win in 33 matches as the club notched a 2-0 home victory against Heracles.

Memphis Depay opened the scoring after 32 minutes just a few days after he agreed to a deal to join Manchester United this summer, while Jetro Willems added a second goal midway through the second half.
