Siyabonga Ligendza has today joined Eastbourne Borough on loan until the end of the season.

Siya partners up with former Coasters Head Coach, Adam Murray, who was appointed First Team Manager at Priory Lane on Thursday.

Ligendza joined the Club from Cardiff City, where he began his career at the age of eight years old, working his way through the Academy system. 

The Leicester-born forward signed a professional contract with the Welsh club in 2021 before netting 40 goals over two-and-a-half years for the development squads at the Cardiff City Stadium. 

Someone with both Welsh and South African citizenship, Siya was named on the preliminary shortlist for South Africa’s 2021 Olympic Games squad in Tokyo.

Good luck, Sia!
