HKFC vs. KCC ‘Annual’ challenge summer 2016 (by Steve Gollop)

After a break of nearly 3 years the annual match against KCC was back on and we were still smarting from our 15-9 defeat over on the dark side back in 2013.

 

In trying to ensure that the Football club would win in this year's event a KCC beating team was assembled featuring some of the most talented players at the club. On paper we certainly looked good, but then we were oblivious to the remarkably talented teens and ladies who were to be unleashed against us!

With home advantage we were determined to win back the historic (scruffy and old) shield which dates back to 1984 when considerably more water separated the teams.

 

We got off to a dream start and were up 4-1 before KCC knew what had hit them. Possibly our deeply seated desire to be sporting kicked in (we relaxed?) and before we knew what hit us, we were 9-9 and then 10-14 down! The middle order of KCC teens and Ladies had done the damage.

Our top flight took 3 of the last 5 rubbers which was not enough and we went down 13-16 to a better side on the day.  Full Individual result below.

 

All 30 members of the team played with big hearts and special mention should be made of the 3-2 winners, namely, Ho Fai Chui, Jurg Neiderberger, Andrew Ward, Nathan lhuillier and to a lesser extent, your author. Match of the day goes to Dean Thompson who we ALL wrote off at 2-0 down, only to see him gallantly fight back through exhaustion and mental torment to level it at 2-2. After which he lost the fifth.

As ever, the match was played in tremendous spirit on and off the court. Over fifty retired after the match to the poolside for buffet and endless beer. Please to report that we won the beer contest (although, to be fair, half the KCC were too young to drink!)

Now looking forward to next year and if we only win one match in 2017, let it be against KCC.
