Li Shu Yeung (Chinese: 李樹烊; Jyutping: lei5 syu6 joeng4, born 2 May 1991 in Hong Kong) is a professional footballer who currently plays for Hong Kong First Division League club Citizen AA as a right-back.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Li was a youth player at Tai Po FC and he also played for Hong Kong in the Chinese National Games.[1]

Tai Chung[edit]

He left Tai Po FC and joined Tai Chung FC in the summer of 2009.

Yuen Long[edit]

One season later, after Tai Chung FC released him, he moved to Yuen Long District SA in 2010 to play in the 2010-11 Hong Kong Second Division League.[2]

He joined Tung Chi Ying School's football academy scheme, which is jointly organised by the school and Kitchee. He was repeating F5 and only expected to get 2 to 3 points in the HKCEE. He hoped by joining the scheme he could continue his studies and play football at the same time.[3]

With Yan Chai Tung Chi Ying Memorial Secondary School football team, Li Shu-Yeung won the Inter-school title as well as the Most Valuable Player award in the Inter-school football tournament.[4] He already plans to become a football coach in the future and has enrolled for a football coach training course.[5]

In April 2011, Li Shu-Yeung got the chance from Kitchee and Tung Chi Ying to train in Lloret de Mar, Spain with two other young players.[6]

Hong Kong Sapling[edit]

Li was loaned to Hong Kong Sapling in the 2011–12 season. He was sent off after two bookable offences in the 6–0 defeat away to Kitchee.[7] He returned to Yuen Long at the end of the season.

Tai Po[edit]

Li left Yuen Long and re-joined First Division club Wofoo Tai Po in the 2012 summer. However, his impressive performance during the season could not avoid Wofoo Tai Po's relegation to Second Division.

Yokohama FC Hong Kong[edit]

On 7 June 2013, Li joined fellow First Division club Yokohama FC Hong Kong for free.[8][9]

International career[edit]

Li Shu Yeung is a member of the Hong Kong national under-23 football team.[10]
