Shahril had previously played for S.League clubs Young Lions and Home United. He joined the Young Lions in 2003 and made his international debut soon after. After four seasons, Shahril Ishak left the Young Lions in 2007 to join Home United.
Shahril made his Home United debut in at the start of the 2007 season. He played his final game for Home United on 21 Sep 2010, scoring two crucial goals against title rivals Tampines Rovers FC. He then left for Indonesia with five games remaining in the S.League season. He finished his last season in Home United with 17 goals to his name and the third highest scorer during the 2010 S.League season.
In 2010, Shahril signed for Indonesian side Persib Bandung, along with his fellow Singapore national football team player, Baihakki Khaizan. He played for Persib Bandung for only six months, scoring 9 goals in 29 appearances along the way. He was then released by the club.
In February 2011, he signed a one-year deal worth $380,000 with Liga Primer Indonesia side, Medan Chiefs. He then went on to score five goals in 18 matches for Medan Chiefs. However, his playing career for Medan Chiefs was short when the league was folded during the third-quarter of 2011.
He returned to Singapore with newly formed club side LionsXII in December 2011. During his stint at LionsXII, he won the 2013 Malaysia Super League title in his second season as well as scoring 17 goals in 34 appearances, finishing as the club top scorer in the 2013 season.
Johor Darul Ta'zim II
Shahril signed a 4-year contract at the end of the 2013 Malaysia Super League by joining Malaysia Premier League club, Johor Darul Takzim II F.C.. He was given the number 17 shirt upon his arrival to the club. He was appointed as the captain for his new club in the 2014 Malaysia Premier League. He was converted back as a centre midfielder / play-maker role and led his new club to a 5th placing position, finishing the season with 7 goals and 8 assists for his new team. He led Johor Darul Takzim II F.C. for the 2015 Malaysia Premier League as the captain again, and led his club to a 5th placing position again, finishing the season with 5 goals and 6 assists.
Singapore's most natural creative midfielder to emerge in recent years, Shahril Ishak has quickly established himself as the heartbeat of the Lions engine room since he made his international debut aged just 19 against Maldives on 4 March 2003.
With winger Muhammad Ridhuan, defender Baihakki Khaizan and keeper Hassan Sunny, he was part of the "NFA Gang of Four", the quartet which had played together since their early teenage years and earned senior international honours in 2003.
He has been employed in various positions across the midfield by coach Radojko Avramovic, but Shahril staked a strong claim for an influential central role with a series of convincing performances there in the second half of 2004.
Capped for Singapore at senior, U23, U18 and U16 levels.
In August 2010 Shahril was revealed as the new captain of the national team, and led the Lions for the AFF Suzuki Cup in December.
On 24 February 2011, Shahrill Ishak converted a penalty into a goal in a 2–2 draw against Azerbaijan national football team.
