Kit collection WILL be available this Sunday. All players are entitled to obtain one new kit at any time during the season when they need it. However, please note that the kit design is identical to last season so members can reduce waste and costs of the kit to the Club by continuing to use existing kit until it needs replacing. The cost savings will be reinvested in providing other rugby facilities, equipment and development opportunities for players.
Planned Kit collection dates for 2019 are-
- 10 Nov
- 24 Nov
- 17 Dec
To relieve the parking problem at EdUHK, please use the Tai Po bus if possible. These buses are heavily subsidised by the club to encourage their use. If they are not used, we may have to cancel them.
Flying Kukris AGM and awards presentations
The Annual Awards Ceremony and AGM were held on Sunday 5th May 2019 at ICHK Hong Lok Yuen. Luckily, the rain held off for most of the morning and it was a great day.
The Committee would like to welcome Amanda Crow who has kindly volunteered for the position of Head of Minis and Chi Lai who is taking over the role of Membership Secretary from his wife! Our thanks to Andrea Lai and Michael Flowers for their contributions to the Committee and Club activities.
Charles Cheung, who many will know has been managing the HK Scottish Coaches for the Youth groups, will be expanding his role to cover coaching guidance and support for the Mini groups as well next season.
The members of the Committee can be seen here on the Flying Kukris website Committee page.
We are still looking for volunteers for First Aid. Ideally, we need a qualified First Aid Coordinator but also we urgently need First Aid volunteers to provide pitch side coverage for each squad. First Aid training will be provided for those that are not currently qualified.
After holding the registration fees at the same level for the past two seasons, an increase was approved at the AGM for the upcoming season 2019/20. A reduction in funds from sponsorships over the past two seasons has led to constraints on spending for the Club. The increase in membership fees will allow the Club to invest more in providing better facilities for our members and developing rugby throughout all age groups. To maintain a reputation as one of the best clubs providing both Mini and Youth rugby for our members, the Club will increase investment in coaching our players, transporting our members to and from training and matches, ensuring player safety with better First Aid and renewing our training equipment. At the same time, Flying Kukris are seeking new sponsors to assist with these investments over the next few years.
On Saturday 16th March the Hong Kong Scottish Kukris played City in a relegation / promotion match to decide who would play in the Women's Premiership next season. Kukris have already won the WNL1 League title and narrowly missed out on the Grand Championship as well, but this match was a step up. Played to Premiership rules, with forty minute halves and no rolling substitutions, the match was very different from what the ladies have been used to. It did not start well as City scored a converted try, while early injuries forced a reshuffling of the Kukris lineup. But a try against the run of play at halftime keep them in the game, trailing 5/7 at the break. In the second half it was City who tired first, with Kukris soon dominating. Two more tries followed with the final score 15/7.
