HKS Kukris Ladies Pick Up First Silverware of the Season
Saturday 6th September was the start of the season with the Hong Kong Scottish Day at King’s Park. The new look HKS Kukris, with recent recruits from the UK and several graduates from last year’s under-18s, had a fantastic day, albeit after a slow start. A narrow loss to Gai Wu was followed by good wins over HK Football Club, Kowloon and Causeway Bay. In spite of the heat, the girls managed to dispatch a vintage Valley side in the semi-final, before soundly beating Tigers in the final and winning the competition. More celebration was the order of the day as Rachel Fong was deemed to be the Most Outstanding Player of the Day from the Women’s games.
The HKS men also made their final, but were unable to overcome a strong Valley side.
USRC Tigers took the Bowl crown after beating out HKCC.
All in all a great start to the season for the club.
