Ambroise Begue (born 22 May 1995) is a French professional footballer who plays as a defender or midfielder for Home United. He started off playing mainly as a defender, but has recently been deployed more frequently as a midfielder when playing for Home United. He started his professional youth career with Ligue 2 side AS Nancy-Lorraine, before moving to Singapore-based club Home United for the 2015 S.League season. Prior to his current spell with Home United, Begue has represented France at the U16 level.


Early life

In March 2002, Begue joined J.S. Bois de Nèfles, an amateur football club based in Saint Clotilde, Réunion. He stayed with the amateur side for 3 years, before transferring to join Club Sportif Saint-Denis, a professional football club playing in the Réunion Premier League.

AS Nancy-Lorraine

After spending 5 years to build his footballing career with Club Sportif Saint-Denis, Begue moved to join AS Nancy-Lorraine in July 2010, a fully professional club now playing in the Ligue 2. Begue featured for the club's reserve team that plays in the Championnat de France Amateur, but never managed to make his senior debut with the club.

Home United

In 2015, Begue left France for Singapore, and signed a contract with Singaporean club Home United. On 8 May 2015, Begue made his league debut for Home United, in a S.League tie against Geylang United, which ended in a 1–0 loss. On 14 May 2015, Begue scored his first goal at the professional level and for Home United in a match against Hougang United, contributing to an eventual 4–0 win. On 15 August 2015, Begue scored for Home United against S.League giants, Warriors FC in the second leg of the Singapore Cup quarter finals. The final aggregate score recorded 4–1 in a Home United victory after both legs.

For the 2016 S.League season, Begue was moved from Home United's first team squad to the reserve team playing in the Prime League, mainly to adhere to new S.League regulations restricting the quota of foreign players in the first team to a maximum of 3. Begue's shirt number was also switched to 27 from the number 18 shirt he wore during the 2015 S.League season. In the first match of the season, Begue scored Home United's first goal of the season in the opener against DPMM FC in the 19th minute. The match eventually ended in a 2–1 loss for Home United.

International career

Prior to joining Home United in Singapore, Begue featured regularly for the France U16 national team.
