David Low (born 23 November 1983 in Singapore) is a Singaporean former footballer. He is mostly for his peripatetic career which has taken him to 11 different countries, including Singapore[1] and sees retired American footballer Jay DeMerit as an inspiration.[2]

Early Life[edit]

Living in South Africa for 7 years, Low was called up to the Singaporean National Service aged 17.[1][2]

Career[edit]

New Zealand[edit]

For some of the 2013–14 New Zealand Football Championship, Low was part of Otago United's defense.[3]

Mongolia[edit]

Traveling to Mongolia in 2012 to play for Khoromkhon of the local Premier League,[4] the Singaporean midfielder lived in an apartment with the other foreign imports,[1] helping them clinch that year's Borgio Cup, beating Ulaanbaatar City Bank 7-0 in the final.[5] He then steered them to a second-place finish in the league.[1]

Cameroon[edit]

Landing a deal with Cosmos de Bafia of the Cameroonian Elite One in 2016,[6] Low was on the bench for Cosmos in a league encounter against Botafogo, leading people to question his Asian origin, with many thinking he was Chinese.[7]
