Workable Football Club (2007–2008)
After the promotion, the team added a few former-Hong Kong national football team players to strengthen the team for a further promotion to the First Division. The team finished second in the second division in the 2006–07 season and has been promoted to the First Division League in 2007–08.
The team obtained an HK$4,000,000 naming sponsorship from Workable Corporation and was named as Workable Football Club to compete in First Division League. The team released all the promotion heroes in Shek Kip Mei and obtained a few players from the extinct Hong Kong 08 as the stem of team construction.
They played its debut match in First Division League on 8 September 2007, drawing 2-2 with Wofoo Tai Po in Mong Kok Stadium. The match is also highlighted by that current Workable manager Chan Hiu Ming is the head coach of Wofoo Tai Po in the previous season.

“... in the minds of search committees there is the lingering question: Can she manage the football coach?”
—Donna E. Shalala (b. 1941)
