The 26-year-old midfielder left Ezenkosi after they failed to secure promotion into the Absa Premiership via the play-offs earlier this year, and he has made sure that he will be playing top-flight football in 2018/19.
Lingwati made his debut for Jomo Sono’s side back in 2013, playing a vital role for the club over the past five seasons as they battled – without fruition – to make it back into the big leagues, and got two goals for the club in 2017/18 as they made the play-offs.
Now though, he’s on the move to the Free State to join up with Komphela’s side at Siwelele, signing a two-year deal with the club.
The player's agent, John Wilson, confirmed the transfer, saying, “We're happy for Thato to be moving up into the Absa Premiership, and we think Bloemfontein Celtic is the right club for him to showcase his abilities."
