Bernardo Lino Castro Paes Vasconcelos (born 10 June 1979) is a Portuguese footballer who plays for Clube Oriental de Lisboa as a striker.

In a professional career which spanned nearly 15 years he played mostly in Cyprus, representing five different teams.

Football career[edit]

Portugal / Holland[edit]

Born in Lisbon, Vasconcelos played for three teams early in his career, including the reserves of local club S.L. Benfica. In the 2002–03 season he helped F.C. Alverca return to the Primeira Liga after one year of absence, scoring once and appearing in less than half of the league's matches.

In January 2004, after solid performances with S.C.U. Torreense in the third division, Vasconcelos moved to the Netherlands and signed with RKC Waalwijk in the Eredivisie, netting four goals to help the North Brabant side retain its top level status. Subsequently he returned to his country with U.D. Leiria, for what would be his only Portuguese top flight experience – after only two games (36 minutes), he returned to his previous team in the following transfer window.

Cyprus[edit]

Vasconcelos left RKC in the 2005 summer, then played one year in Portugal with G.D. Estoril Praia. He then moved to Cyprus and signed for APOP Kinyras FC, scoring at an impressive rate in the division two and adding 12 in 26 games in his first season in the Cypriot First Division, which he split between APOP and AC Omonia.

Vasconcelos returned to APOP for the 2008–09 campaign, helping the team win the domestic cup as he netted in the semifinals against APOEL FC. Afterwards he left the club but remained in the Paphos District, signing for AEP Paphos FC.

In the summer of 2010 Vasconcelos joined Hapoel Be'er Sheva F.C. in Israel, but he returned to former side AEP Paphos in January of the following year. He scored seven goals in only 14 appearances, but his team eventually suffered top division relegation.

In June 2011, Vasconcelos signed for Alki Larnaca FC. He was crowned the league's top scorer in his second year at 18 goals, but the club could only rank ninth.

After a stint in Poland with Zawisza Bydgoszcz, Vasconcelos returned to Cyprus in late 2014 by signing a one-and-a-half year contract with Doxa Katokopias FC.[1]
