Fareez Farhan (born 29 July 1994) is a professional footballer who plays for Young Lions. He was then the second youngest player to play in the S.League at 16 years 7 months and 13 days.[2]

Club career[edit]

Gombak United[edit]

Fareez began his footballing career with Gombak United in 2011. The teenage forward became the youngest player since Hariss Harun to make his debut in the S.League against Albirex Niigata (S) on 11 April 2011, coming on for South Korean striker Chang Jo-Yoon in the 88th minute. He scored his first league goal in the 2-1 defeat against Singapore Armed Forces on 25 June 2011.

In February 2011, Fareez's father contacted Serbian coach Luka Lalic who arranged a six-week-long trial for the player at Croatian giants Dinamo Zagreb. Dinamo Zagreb wanted to keep Fareez, but were unable to sign him under new FIFA regulations in the wake of Chelsea's alleged tapping-up of French youngster Gael Kakuta in 2009.

Following Gombak United's decision to sit out the 2013 S.League, Fareez signed for Courts Young Lions.As he was in the Singapore Police Force for compulsory national services in Singapore , he only appeared four times and scoring none for the club.

Hougang United[edit]

Fareez Farhan signed for Hougang United in December 2014. He scored 2 goals in 12 appearances for the club.
