Biography

Siyabonga Ligendza joined the Sports on loan from AFC Fylde for the rest of the season in January 2024.

The attacker is no stranger to new Borough boss Adam Murray having worked with him at Mill Farm last season, and is a welcome addition as competition for places increases.

Known as Siya, he joined AFC Fylde from Cardiff City, where he began his career at just 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.

He scored six goals in 24 matches for Fylde last term as he helped them lift the National League North title.
