Shahril has previously played for S.League clubs Young Lions and Home United. He joined the Young Lions in 2003 and made his international debut soon after. Shahril Ishak left the Young Lions for Home United after four seasons.
In 2010 he signed for indonesia Persib Bandung along with his fellow Singapore national football team player, Baihakki Khaizan. He played his last game for Home United on 21 Sep 2010, scoring two crucial goals against title rivals Tampines Rovers FC. He then left for Indonesia with five games remaining in the S.League season.

He played for Persib Bandung for six months. In March 2011, he signed with Liga Primer Indonesia, Medan Chiefs a one-year deal worth $380,000.

He returned to Singapore football with newly formed club side LionsXII in December 2011, winning the 2013 Malaysia Super League title in his second season.
Shahril signed a 4 year contract at the end of 2013 Malaysian Super League transfer by joining Malaysian Premier League club, Johor Darul Takzim II F.C.. He was given the number 17 shirt upon his arrival to the club.
Singapore's most natural creative midfielder to emerge in recent years, Shahril Ishak has quickly established himself as the heartbeat of the Lions engine room since he made his international debut aged just 19 against Maldives on 4 March 2003.
With winger Muhammad Ridhuan, defender Baihakki Khaizan and keeper Hassan Sunny, he was part of the "NFA Gang of Four", the quartet which had played together since their early teenage years and earned senior international honours in 2003.
He has been employed in various positions across the midfield by coach Radojko Avramovic, but Shahril staked a strong claim for an influential central role with a series of convincing performances there in the second half of 2004.
Capped for Singapore at senior, U23, U18 and U16 levels.
On Aug 2010, Shahril was revealed as the new captain of the national team, and led the Lions for the AFF Suzuki Cup in December.
