球會歷史

In 1976, a Brigade of Gurkhas (48 Gurkha Brigade) were based in Sek Kong in the New Territories and regularly raised a rugby team that was called "Kukris" to play in the Hong Kong League. The Royal Air Force that had been stationed at Kai Tak airport since the 1920s was moved to the airfield at Sek Kong and considerable building was carried out to accommodate the various units including 28 (AC) Squadron that operated Wessex aircraft in support of the army garrison. The RAF also fielded a side. The 660 Squadron Army Air Corps were also moved to Sek Kong. Since Kukris and RAF suffered from a shortage of rugby players and therefore had difficulty in competing with the bigger clubs (Club, Police, and the Stanley Battalion etc) it was decided that a combined New Territories military club should be formed.

 

當時的指揮官Colonel Bob Richardson‐Aitken上校,曾於威爾斯欖球會及殖民地/當地作賽;第48旅指揮官Brigadier Morgan Llewellyn旅長/準將(亦是威爾斯人)號召前者繼續籌組球會及安排裝置。

 

大家對新組成的球會命名一度未能達成共識,最終同意命名為飛鷹刀欖球會。由於當時新成立的球會缺乏資金增添裝置,故只好沿用原來各隊伍製服的顏色作為球衣的設計,也是我們現在球衣的主要顏色。

 

當時的裁縫Ahluwallia受命將各隊伍製服,即飛鷹刀隊的深綠色、陸軍的紅色及皇家空軍的淺藍色製服縫合起來。早年的球隊主要由65%陸軍及35%皇家空軍組成在石崗運動場練習,自此亦成為我們球會的專屬主場。

 

In 1983 the Flying Kukris Mini Rugby Club was formed to serve the growing interest in mini rugby supported by the senior team. The mini club included a wide cross section of the community and quickly became a popular meeting place for kids and adults on a Sunday morning.

 

In 1997 the British Forces left and the mini rugby club was forced to find a new home. Several uncertain years followed and it was not until 2000 that a base was found at the Community Sports Centre near Sheung Shui. The facility allowed the club to provide expand and develop as the membership numbers grew.

 

By 2009 the demand for space as the Community Sports site limited the club's ability to plan ahead, thus with the help of the HKRFU the club moved to the HKIEd Sport Centre facility for the Sunday morning training.

 

The Kukris is a bilingual rugby club in Hong Kong, with the current breakdown around 70% Chinese and 30% expatriate. The tradition of bilingual coaching remains a corner stone of the club's ethos. Club players range from 4-18, so covering the full spectrum of mini and Colts games

 

Currently the Club is proudly supported by four main sponsors – all drawn from within the Club, allowing the club to grow even further. You can read more about our sponsors 按此
