Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Wofoo Tai Po (2006-2009)[edit]

Joel joined Wofoo Tai Po (Tai Po FC) in September 2006. He established himself as an important first team player immediately and scored a debut goal(The first home game of Wofoo Tai Po, against South China). He became an immediate solution of the team's weakness in defending header and also added a lot of quality in attacking. Besides his passing and run from deep position ability, Joel's attacking header and free kick skills made him the top scorer of the team with 6 goals in 2006/2007, along with striker Christian Annan.

Joel changed his jersey number from 28 to 6 in season 2007/2008, which he scored 7 times and became the third top scorer in the team, and the top scoring defender among the Hong Kong First Division League.

South China AA[edit]

Joel joined South China at the beginning of the 2010 season. On 18 December 2011, he scored two goals, one with a header and the other with a penalty kick, to inflict the first defeat of Kitchee's league season.[1] In January 2012, he was named the Most Valuable Player in the 2011-12 Hong Kong First Division League for December 2011 by the Hong Kong Sports Press Association.[2]
