Club career

South China

Ha Shing Chi joined South China youth team in 1997 and was promoted to the first team in 2003. [1]

Although he was promoted to the first team, he did not have too many match-play chances until the 2004–05 season as South China refused to use any foreign players. On the other hand, when Ha was studying in the City University of Hong Kong, he represented its football team, helping the team to claim the champions of Hong Kong University Football League in 2005 by defeating Chinese University of Hong Kong in the final. He was also crowned the Most Valuable Player of the match.

However, he only featured one FA Cup match during the 2005–06 season, As the club promised to strengthen the squad in the following season after their request to remain in the First Division was approved, Ha was released by the club.

Playing in the Second Division

After being released by South China in 2006, he joined Second Division club Lucky Mile as a semi-professional player. He joined another Second Division club Kwok Keung in the next season.

Tuen Mun Progoal

Ha returned to the top-tier division campaign as he joined First Division club Tuen Mun Progoal in the 2008–09 season. He was one of the key members and featured in most of the matches. His great performance attracted Happy Valley, which later Ha joined after the season.

Happy Valley

Ha joined fellow First Division club Happy Valley in the 2009–10 season. However, he only featured three league matches throughout the season. Happy Valley were also relegated after the season. He left the club eventually.

Southern

Ha returned to the second-tier division and joined newly promoted side Southern. In the first season, he helped the team to win the champions of Junior Shield by scoring the winning 2–1 goal in the 63rd minute. He opted to stay at the club after the season.

As the club's left back first choice, he helped the club gain promotion to the First Division for the first in club history as Southern placed second in the league table. This also meant Ha's second return to the First Division.

In the 2012–13 season, he did not feature the first five Southern matches. As the club wished to improve their defence, Ha started in Southern's sixth match against South China, and the match eventually ended with a goalless draw. Give rise to Ha's impressive performance, he became the usual left back starter in the following matches, not just having done defensive work, but also often provided freekick assists. He has been selected to the Team of the Week twice in the season.

Personal life

Ha Shing Chi, along with his elder brother, are charged by the Independent Commission Against Corruption (Hong Kong) for alleged accepting and offering over HK$328,000 in illegal commissions respectively in relation to the trading in securities. [2]
