History[edit]

Yuen Long District Sport Association was established by former chairmen of Hong Kong Football Association, Fu Lee Sha and Tsang Sam Chiu in 1959.

The team entered the former Hong Kong Third Division League in 1959–1960 season. The team carried a three-year plan to get promotion to First Division. In 1961–1962, the team became the first district team to compete in First Division. In 1962–1963, the team gained their first top Division League title. In 1967–1968, the team captured their first Senior Shield by beating Tung Sing. In 1968–1969, the team turned professional until 1972–1973 when it focused on a youth squad. In 1978–1979, the team beat the league giant Seiko in FA Cup final, which avoided Seiko from capturing all the 6 major tropies in the season. In 1979–1980, the team quit the league due to financial problem.

With the promotion of the district football league, Yuen Long team was formed again in 2003 and entered the Hong Kong Third District Division League.

They were promoted to the Hong Kong First Division League in the 2013–14 season, as they were the champion of the Hong Kong Second Division League, 7 points ahead the runner-up Happy Valley.
