Grant Margeman bid sad farewell to Ajax Cape Town after the club failed in its bid to return to the PSL in the player's 100th appearance.
The Urban Warriors needed to beat Black Leopards in the fifth promotion playoffs game at Rand Stadium on Friday but instead lost 2-0, thus keeping Lidoda Duvha in the top-flight.

Margeman will now leave for Tshwane as he prepares for life at Chloorkop after signing a five-year contract with The Brazilians.
Ntobatsi Masegela, who represents the national under-23 star, said his client had been very keen to leave Ajax Cape Town with great memories.
"He was very excited about his 100th cap and he always wanted to help Ajax gain PSL promotion, and what a way it would have been to say goodbye to the club that gave him the biggest platform of his career," Masegela tells KickOff.com.
"It would have been a dream come true if he had left the club having achieved that goal. But now he is looking forward for his new journey at Sundowns next season."
Sundowns announced the arrival of Golden Boot winner Peter Shalulile and midfielder Mothobi Mvala from Highlands Park earlier today, with more signings set to be unveiled ahead of a busy 2020/21 season.
