3. SPCAA RUGBY SHIRT!

Every year when I going to HK Sevens, we always see people wearing rugby shirts from different companies. In such a great event, we should have our own rugby shirt which tells others that we are not (only) from Goldman Sachs, HSBC, Deacons, etc but we also graduated from the secondary school with the longest history in HK. This is also a great leisure clothes to wear during spring to autumn (for winter the hoodie is best)!

Our Rugby Shirt is produced by Kukri, which is one of the most well known Rugby shirt producers for HK sevens with good product quality. The design and size chart are as attached (For reference Reuben Wu wears L and Alan Chiu wears M). Kids size are also available. And we are almost sure SPCAA Chairman Taylor will treat you unlimited beer if you wear this to HK Sevens next year!

6. Friendly Watermelon Ball Matches with St. Louis School (23 Aug)

Do you know how many members are there in our SPC Alumni Football Team now? There are 153 names on our list, ranging from Class 1971 to Class 2016 (still a student at SPC) and most of them are active football players with good skills. We get to know each other very quickly and become good friends. Though we play games every week with size 5 leather footballs, we won't forget what kind of balls we played at our school Lower Playground at our school days. When we mentioned to our friends who are committee members at St. Louis' Old Boys Association, they also showed keen interest to try and play Watermelon Ball which is new to them.

With the help of our school, we are able to arrange some friendly Watermelon Ball matches with St. Louis' School soon.

• DATE: 23 August 2015 (Sunday)

• TIME: 1:00 p.m.

• VENUE: SPC Lower Playground

• TEAMS: We will have 3 groups separated by year of graduation (Class 89 and before; Class 90 - 99; Class 00 and after) and the number of teams in each group is to be agreed with St. Louis

Certainly these will be exciting matches. Please mark your diary and come back on 23 August to cheer for your St Paul's brothers!

After these games at our home ground, we will play at St. Louis' School as visitors. The date is to be fixed and please stay tuned from the monthly SPCAA Newsletter and the SPCAA Facebook page.
