As a youth player, Yazid first came to prominence in the 1995 Lion City Cup where he stood in goal for eventual winners, the Singapore A (Under-16) squad, alongside Indra Sahdan and Ahmad Latiff Khamaruddin. His level headed performance as a 16-year-old in the competition led to him signing his first professional contract with Sembawang Rangers in the South.League"s maiden season in 1996. During his time with the Stallions, he was once famously deployed as a midfielder in a 1996 South.League match against Woodlands Wellington due to an injury crisis in the Sembawang squad.
On 19 November 2012, it was announced that Yazid Yasin had re-joined his former club, Woodlands Wellington.
He is the player with the fourth most number of appearances for the Rams at 124 appearances behind Abdelhadi Laakkad (129 appearances), Goh Tat Chuan (138 appearances) and current record holder Sazali Salleh (158 appearances). He made his first reappearance and his 125th overall appearance for Woodlands Wellington on 21 February 2013 in a 2–2 draw against Warriors F.C.
After the merger of Woodlands into Hougang United in 2015, Yazid returned to Geylang to join Geylang International Football Club. At 36 years old, Yazid is (at the time) South.League"s oldest active player, after Aleksandar Đurić retired the previous year. Appearances in AFC Cup Competitions
Yazid has one solitary cap for Singapore, which he acquired while playing for the Lions in a friendly match against New Zealand on 29 June 1999.
