Cape Town - Thembinkosi Lorch wants to make a "meaningful" impact at Orlando Pirates following his second return to the club from a loan spell.

The Soweto giants initially signed the 23-year-old from Maluti FET in July 2015, but sent him out on loan to Cape Town All Stars and Chippa United respectively in a bid to garner regular game-time.

Lorch, who impressed and netted in his side's recent 4-2 victory against Cape Town City in a friendly said he will look to help his team bring back the glory days to the supporters.     

"I’m pleased to be back into the team and I hope to make a meaningful impact in the team," he told the club's official website.

"The supporters expect nothing but the best from us as players and I will be looking to do all I can to help the team," he concluded.
