2009 Hong Kong FA Cup[edit]

Lee scored the penalty against Fourway to take Tai Po to the final of the Hong Kong FA Cup.

In the final, Lee Wai Lim scored a free kick and helped Tai Po beat TSW Pegasus 4:2 and thus became the first district team to win the trophy. Lee Wai Lim also won the title of Man of the Match.[3]

His last match for Tai Po FC was a friendly against his new employers South China on 13 June 2009 at Mong Kok Stadium. Tai Po lost the game. Lee Wai Lim scored a penalty which he won himself.

Lee was awarded Hong Kong Player of the Year award on 12 June 2009 and received a HK$45,000 prize.[4]

South China[edit]

On the same date he won the Player of the Year prize, Lee Wai Lim confirmed that he would be joining South China in the season of 2009–10.[5]

On 11 May 2010, in the 2010 AFC Cup second round match against Al Riffa, in the 28th minute, Lee Wai Lim passed to teammate Lee Chi Ho to score. But South China lost the game 1:3.[6]

On 19 February 2011, Lee scored with a header in the 82-minute to help South China win the away game by 1:0 against Tuen Mun.[7]

Pegasus[edit]

Lee joined Pegasus in the summer of 2015 as a player-coach.

International career[edit]

He was selected by Goran Paulić and Dejan Antonić for the Hong Kong team at the end of 2008, to prepare for the 2011 AFC Asian Cup qualifiers. He scored a hattrick in his first game against Macau as Hong Kong achieved a 9–1 win.[8]

He starred in the 2009 Guangdong-Hong Kong Cup, scoring one goal and providing two assists to help Hong Kong secure a 4–1 victory at home and a 5–4 aggregate win over Guangdong. His performance earned him the nickname Prince William from the fans.

On 30 September 2011, Lee Wai Lim scored the opening goal in the 3:3 draw with the Philippines in the 2011 Long Teng Cup.[9]
