21 Years as a pro!

After 21 years as a pro it's time for the next chapter. I've had some amazing experiences on and off the pitch. A massive thank you to my close mentors, bosses, former clubs, coaches, team mates & fans who have made it a memorable journey. Loved every minute and have no regrets. The dream must be always be greater than the memory. πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ πŸ‡­πŸ‡° πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ πŸ‡΅πŸ‡°

5 Years with Southern District FC

It has been an amazing 5 years with Southern Family. For personal reasons I have agreed to mutually end my contract with the club and return to the UK. I have always enjoyed an open and honest relationship with the bosses. Special thank you to chairman Man Chun Chan , President Mr Wong, Timothy Wong, Calvin Pui, Beto Fronza, Kam Nin Lee , Fai Sham, Wong Tsz Him,  Wong Kc, the Academy coaches, team mates, fans and the local community for the special memories. 

The club ultra professionally showing great care and compassion towards me and my family. I appreciate the huge opportunity given to transition from player to Head Coach and put into practice what I learned on the UEFA Pro licence for the past two seasons.

This season we raised the standards significantly displaying amazing spirit, belief, bravery and togetherness. The mutual trust, respect and honesty amongst players/staff created an outstanding development culture. It was pleasing to give several young players their 1st team debuts and see experienced players develop further. I will always remain open minded to returning to Hong Kong in future. πŸ‡­πŸ‡°πŸ‘⚽️πŸŸπŸ™ŒπŸ€

Mid - Season. Top of the league

At the halfway point in the season, we find ourselves at the top of the league with the second-highest number of goals scored, the best defensive record as well as the most clean sheets beating Asian Champions league side Kitchee and last years league runners up Eastern along the way. There's lots of hard work to do in order to maintain our standards but with the processes we have implemented I am confident we can stay competitive in every game.

10th Season in Asia - 5th place league finish

10th season in Asia and the first as a Player Head Coach ends in a respectable 5th place mid-table finish. Excellent learning curve for our youngest coaching team in the league and by far the most challenging and rewarding season I have had during my 20 years as a pro. 

Thank you #Calvin Fai Sham  Wong Tsz Him for the continued hard work and support. The spirit and commitment from the players, staff, coaches, and fans were clear to see throughout. 

Great job behind the scenes as always Wong Kc and legend kitman Kam Nin Lee . We will review and reflect on the games to try to improve. Finally thank you to the bosses for the ongoing backing and support all season. Onwards and upwards.

Win, Goal, MOM!

The team put in a fantastic performance at the weekend against Happy Valley running out 2-1 winners in a game that could have been a lot more for us. The season has two games to go and we currently occupy 5th place, one more win would all but guarantee that final league position. It was pleasing to get on the scoresheet but I was more pleased with the overall togetherness and atmosphere of the group. We will need this togetherness and attitude going into the last few weeks of the season.

3-3 Draw last kick of the game!

Yesterday we drew 3-3 with local rivals Happy Valley with the last kick of the game to rescue a point. After leading 2-0 the game should have been wrapped long before but we need to learn how to see out games. The attitude and effort from all players was very clear to see, nobody gave up which is the absolute minimum requirement. We now have a week to recover and prepare for the next game which is a crucial one for us to collect more points if we want to climb the table

27 Mar 2021

1-1 Draw with Happy Valley

This evening we drew 1-1 with Happy Valley in a game we created lots of clear chances to win the game, the team performance deserved three points but a point is never a bad result. 

We have a week to now prepare for our first home game for several months. 

Hopefully, we can take the momentum from this game into next week and turn a draw into a victory, 

13 Mar 2021

Yesterday was a tough game to come away from without at least a point, Credit to the players for not giving up. 2-1 to a team who is expected to be up at the top end of the table is not bad but we know we can be better and will keep working hard to improve in all aspects.

First League Game 4-0 Away win

Add caption
 Last weekend we kicked off the Hong Kong Premier League season 2020-2021 with an emphatic 4-0 away win at Pegasus. It is nice to get off to a winning start however there is still a very long way to go and lots of hard work ahead of us this season. 

Pleased to see several aspects of our training come off in the game which is a credit to the players and coaches for believing in the new style of play and identity we are creating at the club during this season of transition.

Development Coaches

Great to have two additions to the youngest coaching team in Hong Kong. πŸ‡­πŸ‡°⚽️🀝

Lau Wa Kit & Michael Tsang are very dedicated & passionate development coaches who will specifically train the first team Academy graduates that have successfully transitioned from our club's youth system to the first-team squad to help them maximize their potential. 

Both coaches are familiar with our elite youth curriculums and player development philosophy and will no doubt prove to be very beneficial to the squad

Academy Debuts

Proud moment for our Academy

to see Lam Chi Fung making his professional debut to become the fourth Academy graduate to play in the first team since the start of our elite youth development program in 2018.

 Well done to fellow 19-year-old Stefan Antonic also on his first professional start. The club is very much in a transition process but the future is bright πŸ‘πŸŸ⚽️πŸ‡­πŸ‡°

 It was great to start the 2020-2021 Season with an entertaining late 3-2 victory. Enjoyed the experience of preparing the team all week and then being involved in the heat of the battle on the pitch. Long way to go this season for our young players and staff. Hard work starts now! Welcome to Hong Kong to our new foreign signing from Portugal, Pedro Mendes. 

18 May 2020


I value the trust and confidence placed in me by the President, Vice President and Chairman. I am looking forward to maintaining our honest relationship and to the challenges ahead. The coronavirus pandemic has changed the dynamics of the game worldwide, it has restricted many clubs financially, however opportunities will arise through adversity and this is very much an opportunity for me to lead a wonderful club.

3rd in the league

Yesterday we returned to league action behind closed doors with a heavy defeat against Kitchee, we got punished for individual errors but must learn from the game and look to recover as soon as possible to approach the FA Cup game next week in a positive frame of mind. The league table is still fairly tight and we still have 8 games to go in order to finish as high up the table as possible.

The first leg of the World Cup Qualifiers against Cambodia ended in a late 2-0 defeat, we had several chances to get a crucial away goal but unfortunately could not convert the chances. The second leg game in Qatar will be an opportunity to reverse the result and progress to the groups stages of World Cup Qualification for the 1st time in the history of Pakistan Football. We now have a few days to recover and prepare for that second crucial leg game in Doha, Qatar.

Last weekend we ended the 2018/2019 Season with the FA Cup final against Kitchee at the Hong Kong Stadium, despite having several good chances to win the game we could not get the crucial breakthrough goal, eventually lost the game 2-0. We finished the league campaign in third place and with the defensive record in the top four of the league. 

On a personal note I was pleased to play the most minutes including international fixtures and extend my contract. 
We now look to build on the positives from this season and improve on the league position and hopefully win a trophy or two. I am now away with the National Team for World Cup Qualifier games over two legs against Cambodia in Cambodia and Qatar.
