Early years

Yip was born in Hong Kong. When he was young, he joined Hong Kong First Division team South China youth academy.

He only played in the Hong Kong Second Division League as a non-professional player.

Club career

Eastern

In 2007, Eastern was invited to promote to the Hong Kong First Division League. Eastern's coach Casemiro Mior invited Yip to join the club. Miro was the coach of South China's youth team and Yip was one of his former player. Eastern was also Yip's first professional club.

Mutual

After a season with Eastern, due to insufficient chances, Yip, alongside 7 other former Eastern players, joined the newly promoted team Mutual in the 2008–09 season.

Although he played most of the matches for Mutual, Mutual could not avoid relegation to the Second Division after a season in the top-tier league.

Pegasus

Since he was living in Yuen Long District, Pegasus, a team based in the district, signed Yip at the beginning of the 2009–10 season.

However, Yip was not given any chances, whilst at the same time, Yip could not attend training sessions in the evening as he had to attend school courses. He was released by the team after only staying half season with the team. [3]

Tai Chung

Yip joined another First Division club Tai Chung after being released by Pegasus.

He was one of the key players of the club, but the team could not avoid relegation from the First Division.

Tuen Mun

He signed a contract with Tuen Mun at the beginning of the 2011–12 season. [4]

On 30 October 2012, due to the divestment of Tuen Mun president Chan Keung, various key players, including Yip, and the whole coaching team were released by the club. [5]

Pegasus

He signed for Pegasus on 1 January 2014. [6]

Yuen Long

In 2015, he returned to his home town and signed for Hong Kong Premier League club Yuen Long.
