Winter League Summary-Autumn

The winter league got off with a very fast start in the first week of October with many fixtures between HKFC teams playing each other. The season continues to April/May where teams are crowned divisional champions and the top 4 teams then battle it out for the play-off winners. New players joined the teams and many existing players moved into different teams depending on their form from the previous year which meant there are many new look teams this year. Every individual match is important as this gives the team one league point with an extra point being awarded to the overall winners of the team’s matches.

Division 2

The league season got off with a bang with HKFC 2A playing HKFC 2B on the first day of the season. 2B were 4-1 victors setting the stall out for Ho Ming Chiu’s team. The early season form has continued winning their first three games in what looks to be a very strong team, with them being top of the table. Nathan L’Huillier’s 2A team bounced back from the loss to 2B to beat KCC 2B in their second game and they then lost a close encounter in their third game to YP 4 to be lying in 3rd place.

Division 3

HKFC 3 convened by Terence Teo have had a fantastic start to the season winning their first 4 games and already amassing 20 points to be top of the table. Their first game was against the strong KCC side which they won 4-1.

Division 4

HKFC 4 are another unbeaten team showing great early season form they have won their first 4 matches this season only dropping one point to date. James Li’s team look to be early season favourites to win the division with their fast start out of the gates.

Division 5

David Robinson’s HKFC 5 team had a solid start to their campaign winning two out of their first 4 matches. They won all their games in the first match vs DB but lost the second against a strong KCC side.

Division 6

The old rivalry of the two division 6 teams continues for another year with a big game on the opening night with club captain Julian Tanner’s 6B team just edging out the 6A team led by Jason Lam. It is early days in a very strong league with both teams having a solid start.

Division 7A

The division 7 team who were league and play off champions last year have started this year in a great fashion. After three games they are unbeaten having only dropped 2 points so far. Dave Chan has taken on responsibility as convenor and has done a great with convincing wins over HKU2 and WSC.

Division 8A

HKFC 8A led by Alex Berriman lost their first game to rivals the cricket club and then had another tough game vs KCC. They have started to show some form with a win over TSC1 to get them back on track.

Division 8B

Phil Ting’s 8B strong team have had a solid start winning their first couple of games of the season against rivals CUHK and FC5.

Division 9

Mark Squire’s division 9 team has won four of their first 5 games this season. They had a tricky start against HKCC but have put that behind them to gel as a squad and be unbeaten since the first match of the season.

Division 10

Vinod Harjani’s 10A team and Arthur Malloy’s 10B team had a great first match against each other to open up their season with Vinod’s team just nicking it 3-2. The 10B team turned round there loss to win the next three matches and now top the table with 10A still awaiting to update some results.

Division 11

HKFC 11 have won their first 3 games of the season. There looks to be some strong competition in the league so it will be interesting to see how the league pans out. Good wins against Flash and Boss will give Rajesh Mulchand’s team some early season confidence.

Division 13

HKFC 13 have had an unlucky start losing their first two games 3-2. With the season in its early stages Damien Laracy’s team has plenty of time to bounce back and climb the table.

Division 14

The HKFC 14 team are lying in mid-table after three matches. Thomas Cheung’s team will be confident to climb the table especially after their strong 5 nil start vs DS.

Masters Division 1

It is very early days but the teams have had contrasting starts with M1A winning their first three games and M1B currently at the bottom of the league. With over 35s now being able to play (instead of over 40s) in this division the teams have changed. The Julian Ragless led M1A team had the club derby their first game of the season and won 4-0 against Roger Liden’s M1B.

Master Division 2

The old rivals of M2 played at the start of the season with M2A led by Kien Ng winning 3-2 vs M2B led by Stephane Vartanian. In a strong league the M2A team are lying in third and M2B in 5th.

Master Division 3

HKFC M3A have enjoyed a solid start to the season by winning their first two games which will have pleased convenor Jurg Niederberger. M3B under Nick Organ are awaiting their first victory in the league after playing some tough early games.

Master Division 4

The Div 4 team now in its second season have started slowly and lie in 7th in a strong division. Convenor Rachel Sutcliffe will be looking to turn the fortunes round in the next few games.

Ladies Division 1

The HKFC L1 team have an early win which will assist in boosting confidence in what is a very strong division.

Ladies Division 2

DivL2_1.jpg

It is early days in the ladies Division 2 but with 3 teams from HKFC battling out for glory it will be interesting to see which team turns out to be strongest. The L2C team have started very well led by Violeta Thomas with L2A and L2B not far behind under the stewardship of Cherly Vong and Rachel Sutcliffe respectively..

Ladies Division 3

L3A have started strongly in one of the smaller leagues. Chin Mcnamara will be looking to keep the momentum going. Javy Wong the convenor of L3B will be looking to catch up their footy club rivals even though they did beat them in the first game of the season.
