He is also the only player with a notable record who is still actively playing for the club.
Ahmadulhaq started off his career as a youth player in Woodlands Wellington before moving up to feature in the senior team as the reserve goalkeeper in the 2005 S.League season behind Yazid Yasin. Unable to find a starting spot for himself due to Yazid's fine form, Ahmadulhaq moved to Tampines Rovers in 2007 behind Rezal Hassan.
He returned to Woodlands in the 2008 S.League season but once again had little game time as Woodlands employed the services of Yazid Yasin and veteran Rezal Hassan in 2009. Ahmadulhaq moved again in the pre-season of the 2010 S.League season, transferring over to Balestier Khalsa this time round.
Big break with Woodlands Wellington in 2012
After spending 10 seasons with Woodlands, Ahmadulhaq finally got his big break in his 11th season with the Rams in 2012 when he was named as the first choice goalkeeper ahead of Woodlands' regular goalkeeper for the 2011 S.League season, Ang Bang Heng.
Ahmadulhaq was integral to Woodlands's first game of the 2012 campaign as his fine reflexes allowed the visitors to beat the Courts Young Lions on opening day. The Courts Young Lions were widely tipped to win the fixture but he was equal to the task of keeping everything out, frustrating them time and again.
He has also gone on to earn more plaundits as the 2012 S.League season progressed with his fine reflexes and shot stopping. Despite ending up on the losing team during the S.League match between Harimau Muda and Woodlands Wellington on 15 April 2012, Ahmadulhaq made the headlines when he made several fine saves and even stopped a penalty.
