球會歷史

踞咯兵的其中一旅(第48旅)在1976年駐紥於新界石崗軍營,他們定期籌組一支名叫「飛鷹刀」的球隊到香港欖球聯盟作賽。而自1920年代駐守在啟德機場的英國皇家空軍亦轉移到石崗機場駐守並在該處大興土木以容納不同單位,包括駕駛韋斯特蘭韋塞克斯直升機駐防的英國皇家空軍第28中隊。皇家空軍也在旁駐守。660個皇家空軍第28陸軍協調中隊亦轉移到石崗。由於飛鷹刀隊及皇家空軍一直缺乏足夠的欖球運動員,實在難與其他擁有較多球員的球會(例如欖球總會、警察球隊及赤柱軍營球隊等)對疊,所以決定籌組一個合併的新界軍隊球會。

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。

球會歷史

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 Sports 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 cornerstone of the club’s ethos. Club players range from 4 to 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 being a sponsor 按此. You can learn more about our current sponsors by clicking the company logos located at the base of the page.
