Ang Zhiwei is a Singaporean footballer who plays in the S.League for Warriors FC.[1] He is started his career as an attacking midfielder but now plays as a defender.

Club career[edit]

Ang started off as a player in the Prime League until he came to prominence in the 2009 S.League season when he formed part of the Geylang United squad which overcame reigning Singapore Cup champions, Bangkok Glass, to capture the Singapore Cup. His performance also led to him being selected for the Singapore Under-21 National Team.[2]

Upon the completion of his national service, Ang returned to Geylang United for the 2012 S.League season, where he played his first full season with the Eagles.

On 1 January 2013, it was announced that he had joined Woodlands Wellington along with Shahril Alias after spending one season at Bedok Stadium, joining up with former Geylang United captain and goalkeeper, Yazid Yasin.[3]

He made his debut for Woodlands Wellington on 21 February 2013 in a 2-2 draw against Warriors F.C..[4]

On 21st December 2013, Tampines Rovers announced the signing of Ang for the 2014 season. [5]
