Leeuwenburgh pens emotional letter to CT City


Peter Leeuwenburgh bid an emotional farewell to Cape Town City expressing his gratitude to all of those who have helped him throughout his stay at the club.

The Dutch professional footballer spent three years at the Citizens, having joined them back in July 2018.

“Thanks for making me feel at home. The last 3 years have been an absolute pleasure,” wrote the 27-year-old goalie on his official Twitter account.

“Life-changing moments on and off the pitch. Met so many special people from all kinds of cultures and backgrounds.

“I’m more than ready for the next step. Siyabonga. Baie dankie. With love.”

Leeuwenburgh will be going back home to the Netherlands, as he prepares for a new season in the Eredivisie with FC Groningen.

The goalkeeper managed to lift the MTN8 trophy in the 2018/19 season as City defeated SuperSport United 4-1 on penalties (0-0 after extra time) at the Moses Mabhida Stadium.

The outgoing Cape Town-based outfit shot-stopper played a total number of 92 games and kept 32 clean sheets in the process.
