La'Vere Lawrence Corbin-Ong (born 22 April 1991) is an English-born Malaysian left back who plays for Malaysian club Johor Darul Ta'zim.

He was born in London, England where his parents, Lawrence Corbin and Elizabeth Ong were studying psychiatry and nursing respectively. Corbin-Ong was one year old when his family moved to Edmonton, the capital city of Alberta. When he was four years of age, his family moved to North Vancouver, where he was raised.[5]

He played a variety of sports in his youth, including soccer, lacrosse, gridiron football and tennis. Corbin-Ong was six years old when he started playing soccer for the Diamond Backs in Lynn Valley, a neighbourhood in North Vancouver.[6]

He played for Capilano University in Canada for a season after high school, then joined Major League Soccer side Vancouver Whitecaps at the age of 19.

Club career[edit]

Whitecaps Reserves[edit]

Corbin-Ong spent two years playing for the Whitecaps Reserves team, making 29 appearances for the club in 2010 and 2011, when the team competed in USL Premier Development League.

FC Pommern Greifswald and Berliner AK 07[edit]

Corbin-Ong spent two seasons with FC Pommern Greifswald in the Oberliga Nord, and another two seasons with Berliner AK 07 in the Regionalliga.

After receiving interest from 2. Bundesliga club 1. FC Union Berlin in 2015,[7][8] Corbin-Ong signed with FSV Frankfurt in the 3. Liga in June 2016.[9]

Go Ahead Eagles[edit]

Corbin-Ong joined Eerste Divisie side Go Ahead Eagles on 3 July 2017.[10]

Johor Darul Ta'zim[edit]

On 24 November 2017, it was announced the signing of Corbin-Ong by Malaysian club Johor Darul Ta'zim. Corbin-Ong mother is from Malaysia, which will enable him to be classified as a local player.[11]

International[edit]

Corbin-Ong was born in London to a Bajan father and a Malaysian mother, but moved to Canada at the age of one and is therefore eligible to play for Canada, England, Barbados and Malaysia internationally.[12]

In March 2017, Corbin-Ong received his first call-up to the Canadian national team.[13] He made his international debut when he came on a second-half substitute in a 1–1 friendly draw with Scotland.

In June 2019, Corbin-Ong made his Malaysia debut after starting in the friendly match against Nepal.[14] He was eligible to play for Malaysia as his previous appearance for Canada was in a friendly match. He scored his first international goal for Malaysia in the FIFA World Cup Qualifier against Timor-Leste which Malaysia won 7-1. [15]
