Dale Michael Tempest (Chinese: 譚拔士, born 30 December 1963 in Leeds) is a former professional footballer, best known for his time spent playing in Hong Kong. Born in England but spent much of his youth in Peebles, Scotland, Tempest had played for several English teams including Fulham, Huddersfield Town, Gillingham and Colchester United before arriving in Hong Kong.
Tempest went to school in Bracknell, Berkshire at Garth Hill Comprehensive, leaving in 1980 to sign for Fulham.
Career in Hong Kong
Tempest arrived in Hong Kong in 1989 and played for South China. He moved to Eastern but later returned to South China. He was the top scorer in the Hong Kong First Division League on a record five occasions (1989–90, 1990–91, 1992–93, 1993–94, 1994–95). Probably his most memorable match among Hong Kong football fans came in a friendly between South China and São Paulo FC, when Tempest scored three goals and helped South China win 4–2. In 1997, having granted permanent resident status by the Hong Kong Government, he represented Hong Kong at international level and played in the 1998 Fifa World Cup qualifiers against South Korea and Thailand.
