  3. Wing Yee - Season Review 2025/26 Hong Kong Premier League/Hong Kong Premier League progress/Hong Kong Premier League fixtures : We managed to go a second successive season unbeaten in the league as we retained our title, finishing 11 points ahead of rivals Kitchee. Hong Kong Community Cup : We beat Eastern 2-1 in the season opener to claim the Community Cup for the 6th time in 8 years. Hong Kong Senior Shield : We were unable to defend this trophy as Metro Gallery beat us in extra time, cruelly in the 120th minute. Hong Kong League Cup/Hong Kong League Cup Group A : We continued our great record in this cup which is fast becoming a favourite of ours as we trounced South China 4-0 in the final to claim the cup for a 6th successive year! Hong Kong FA Cup : We were unable to defend this cup either as Tai Po beat us in extra time in the quarter final. Hong Kong-Shanghai Interport Club Championship : Same opponents…same result. Although we did almost manage a draw in both legs. Asian Confederation Cup : We carried on our Confederation Cup campaign from last season as we beat Al-Muhafaza in the quarter final, beat SC Goa on away goals in the semi final and beat Paxtakor in the final to claim the Confederation Cup for a 3rd time. Asian Champions League/Asian Champions League Group F : Because of the rise in the Hong Kong league’s reputation, it means that we qualified for the group stage of the Champions League instead of having to go through the qualifying rounds. We were given a tough draw as we were drawn alongside Shanggang, Newcastle Jets and Jeonbuk in group F and over the course of the group stage, we failed to pick up a single point as we lost all 6 of our games. We can take encouragement though that while we did lose all of our games, all of those games were tight affairs and we kept the scores respectable. Squad : The squad of players are clearly growing and starting to fulfil the potential that they have as they once again retained the title as well as claiming the Community Cup, the League Cup and the Confederation Cup this season. Wong Ho Man (19N) had another fine season as he scored 27 times in 36 games while also finishing as the league’s top goal scorer while his strike partner Cheng Ming Fung (18P) scored 14 times in 35 games. Ip Siu Ki (23L) had a good season as he claimed 9 goals and 9 assists as well as claiming the Hong Kong Footballer of the Year award while Lam Chi Wing (23G) had a great season as he claimed both the Hong Kong Fans’ Player of the Year award and the Hong Kong Players’ Player of the Year award. Reserves/Under 18’s : The players that were in the under 18’s previously are obviously getting older now the years are going by so some of them have made the next step up and have progressed to the reserves. There’s a number of players in the reserves that definitely look as if they’ll be pushing for the first team next season while the under 18’s are looking as if there are a few potentials there as well. Finances : We’ve crept back into debt again as we’re almost a quarter of a million pound in debt. My views of the season… : I said last season that it’ll be difficult to repeat the clean sweep that we completed last season and that proved to be the case, but to still win the league title, the Community Cup, the League Cup and the Confederation Cup is a massive achievement and one that we should be proud of. Despite us struggling in the Champions League too, it’s another step to where we need to be if we’re to progress as a club…we might even win a game in the group next season! My aims for next season… : No doubt that Kitchee and South China will be up there next season as well Eastern, who had a poor season by their standards so we must once again be looking to compete with them if we’re to retain our league title. The Champions League will provide another chance for us to test ourselves against the best in Asia as well and hopefully we can pick up a couple of wins there. I’m looking forward to seeing what the partnership of Wong Ho Man (19N) and youngster Lau Cheuk Yin (26N) can bring next season as the new boy definitely showed promise this season with 3 goals in 4 games while I’m obviously looking for my two boys to progress too as they continue to make an impression in the first team. One player that won’t be part of the squad though is Kan Tsz Him who after 9 years and 156 league appearances will be leaving us as his contract is up as he wants a new challenge.

  4. Wing Yee - Youth Intake 2025/26 Lam Yiu Man (26A) Kong Ka Chun (26B) Fong Tak Wai (26C) Chan Tsz Ho (26D) Tsang Lok Him (26E) Lai King Yeung (26F) Pang Ying Kit (26G) Lee Tsz Ho (26H) Wong Hoi Wai (26I) Wong Chun Fai (26J) Chung Chun Hin (26K) Ho Chun Kit (26L) To Wai Lim (26M) Lau Cheuk Yin (26N) Ho Tsz Hin (26O) Kwong Siu Kwan (26P) A fantastic youth intake for us this season as 11 players look as if they have the potential to maybe push for the first team in the next few years with Lau Cheuk Yin (26N) looking as if he’ll be able to push for a first team place already at just 15 years old!
  5. Wing Yee - Pre-Season 2025/26 League expectation Hong Kong Premier League : Board expectation - Qualify for the Asian Champions League : Media expectation - 3rd (out of 11) Cup expectations Hong Kong Community Cup : Not important Hong Kong Senior Shield : Not important Hong Kong League Cup : Not important Hong Kong FA Cup : Not important Hong Kong-Shanghai Interport Club Championship : Not important Asian Champions League : Not important Transfer budget : £0k (last season £0k) Wage budget : £12.5k p/w (last season £9k) Current wage bill : £9k p/w (last season £10k) Season tickets sold : 0 (+0 from last season) My views for the season ahead… : The board are wanting us to qualify for the Asian Champions League this season, which means a top 3 finish while the media are expecting us to finish 3rd once again. While it does give us a bit of room to manoeuvre in the league, we do need to retain our title as the league winner qualifies automatically for the Champions League whereas 2nd and 3rd are entered at the 2nd round preliminary stage and we know better than anyone how difficult it is to qualify from that stage against some of the biggest teams in Asia! Wong Ho Man (19N) will again be a pivotal figure for us as his goals in the past two seasons have been nothing short of miraculous as he’s hit 80 goals in all competitions in just 88 games but it’s the other end of the field that could be our downfall this season as Tsang Siu Hong (19E) left us in the summer for arch rivals Kitchee as he didn’t believe that we could reach his ambitions as a club! :mad:…he’ll be a big loss for us. We also lost our captain Lee Kwok Kei, who over 8 years amassed 140 league appearances and proved to be a great leader for us. It’ll be tough for the players to fill those full back positions especially considering the shoes that they have to fill.
  6. You mean the foreigners? Maybe they are no longer classed as foreign having played there a while?

  9. Wing Yee - Season Review 2024/25 Hong Kong Premier League/Hong Kong Premier League progress/Hong Kong Premier League fixtures : After losing our title to Kitchee last season, we managed to retain it this season after going undefeated in the league all season as we finished 10 points clear of our rivals J. Hong Kong Community Cup : We beat Kitchee 3-2 in the season opener to claim the Community Cup for the 5th time in 7 years. Hong Kong Senior Shield : This was the only cup that the board wanted us to progress in so it was good that we achieved that as we beat South China 3-1 in the final. Hong Kong League Cup/Hong Kong League Cup Group C : We made it 5 years in a row winning this cup after beating Kitchee 3-0 in the final. Hong Kong FA Cup : We completed a clean sweep of domestic trophies thanks to a favourable draw along the way that saw us beat Pegasus (HKG) 2-1 in the final. Asian Confederation Cup/Asian Confederation Cup Group G : We carried on with last seasons Asian Confederation Cup at the start of the this season as we brushed aside Muharraq in the quarter final and Da Nang in the semi final to give us a chance of claiming the ACC for a second successive season. We faced Malaysian side Selangor, who we have beaten before 5 years ago in the Asian Champions League 2nd Preliminary round, and it was a similar story this time around as we beat them 2-1 in extra time to claim the ACC for a second successive season J. On to this season’s ACC and we were placed in group G which saw us qualify from the group easily as we didn’t lose a game. We beat Rimyongsu in the 2nd round after extra time which leaves us waiting to play our Quarter Final fixture next season against Syrian side Al-Muhafaza. Squad : The players responded well to last seasons disappointment of losing our league title as they remained unbeaten ALL season in ALL competitions…an incredible 45 games! They also claimed all of the domestic cups (Community Cup, League Cup, Senior Shield, FA Cup) while also claiming the Confederation Cup for a second successive season! Wong Hon Man (19N) had another fantastic season as he netted 39 times in 43 games while Cheng Ming Fung (18P) got in on the goal scoring action by scoring 19 goals in 31 games. Under 18’s : A good youth intake for us this season saw the emergence of my 2nd son in as many years, Dean Rawlings (25O) come through the ranks J. As with his older brother, Ryan Rawlings (24A), Dean was fast tracked into the first team…just because I can J. The other youth players proved to be good additions to the Under 18’s as they went on to win the Under 18 league. Finances : For a second season, we’re actually not in debt at the end of the season as we sit with £7.5k in the bank J. My views of the season… : Probably my most successful season at Wing Yee yet as we claimed the HK league title, the Community Cup, the Senior Shield, the League Cup, the FA Cup and the Asian Confederation Cup , we remained unbeaten ALL season while we also produced another son from the academy to add to the son that I had last season! J. My aims for next season… : It’ll obviously be tough to top what we achieved this season as the last time that we achieved a domestic clean sweep (2020/21) we failed to repeat it the following the season. Again, with the other big 3 teams in the league (Kitchee, South China and Eastern) strengthening their squads it’ll be a challenge to retain the title but that’s the aim. Also, with the increase in the HK leagues reputation, it means that the winner of the league now qualifies for the Asian Champions Group Stage as opposed to the preliminary rounds so we’re straight into the hat for the ACL group stage J.

  10. Good to see another Asian save going . Good luck with this. I loved my time in Cambodia. Such a beautiful country with, as you say, so much history. As for the Asian Cup, some big surprises there with the likes of East Timor and Palestine going as far as they did and no sign of UAE?
  11. I second that! One Nobby is enough!
  12. I had to check the time between them myself otherwise I'd have been asking questions! I might have a go on the lottery on Tuesday and Wednesday!
  13. After over 25 years of playing CM/FM and never having an in-game son, I now have two in the same save in consecutive youth intakes! Both brothers and although they're not as different as yours were , one does have black hair and blue eyes while the other has blonde hair and brown eyes!

  14. Dean Rawlings (25O) Profile Overview | Attributes Overview | Information Overview | Coach Report He does look like a very good prospect indeed and with a lot of work in training, I’m hopeful that he’ll be able to cut it here at Wing Yee.
