CAPE TOWN – Cape Town City pulled off yet another major signing with the acquisition of 24-year-old Dutch goalkeeper Peter Leeuwenbergh from Ajax Amsterdam. 

Leeuwenbergh has played for his country at youth level. His arrival in the Mother City is another indication of the reputation the Cape club is rapidly garnering in the football world. 

Already, this season, they’ve managed to lure Gift Links to return from Egypt, and promising 20-year-old Keanu Cupido to forego a career in France.

Now, they’ve persuaded Leeuwenbergh to parade his talents in the PSL – and, according to City, the goalkeeper is “relishing this new challenge and the club welcomes the immense quality and experience he will bring to the PSL”.

Club boss John Comitis said: “Peter has a good pedigree and he and Sage Stephens will fight it out for the number one jersey.”

City’s veteran goalkeeper Shu-aib Walters is likely to be on his way out of the club and has recently been training with neighbours Ajax Cape Town.
