Former Bloemfontein Celtic, Orlando Pirates and University of Pretoria striker Lennox Bacela has hung up his boots after an unsuccessful trial with new Absa Premiership club Cape Town City.

Bacela turned out for Tuks last season, but saw his team being relegated to the National First Division and didn’t go down with the club.

The former Pirates goalpoacher then went on to try his luck with City but it did not go well for him down in Cape Town. The striker has been reported to have been offered a deal by NFD side Royal Eagles, however he turned it down.
