OUR CLUB

Over a century ago exiled Scots in London formed London Scottish FC which is widely regarded as one of the greatest success stories in British rugby.

In a similar vein, HKRFU set up a new Premiership team with the support of London Scottish, adopting their badge and sharing their colours (blue, white and red) as a mark of that relationship. This involved a group of exiled Scots engaging with the existing Nomads rugby club and building on a relationship with London Scottish and the strong Scottish community in Hong Kong. Hong Kong Scottish was thus formed, and in early April 2011 the club was launched, playing in the world famous Melrose Rugby Sevens – the birthplace of Rugby Sevens. The club entered into the domestic Premiership Division for the 2011/12 season.

Hong Kong Scottish runs four men’s rugby sides: Bloomberg Hong Kong Scottish (1st XV), Hong Kong Scottish Nomads (2nd XV), Hong Kong Scottish Bravehearts (3rd XV) and Hong Kong Scottish Phoenixes (4th XV) and two women’s rugby teams – Hong Kong Scottish Kukris and Sekonders. The club’s home ground in the Shek Kip Mei area of Hong Kong is affectionately known as ‘The Rock’.

The club has grown impressively and now boasts more than 600 members (of whom over 300 are playing members). In addition to rugby, the club is represented by the Stags, Eagles (football), Nessies, Thistles, Pipers, Whiskies, Highlanders, Unicorns (netball) and six junior netball sides. The club has also developed partnerships with local charities including The Hub and Changing Young Lives Foundation. Regular events give players and coaches the opportunity to teach local children from Shek Kip Mei and Sham Shui Po districts about rugby and a healthy lifestyle.

Roy Kinnear

Chairman

Roy was appointed Chairman of Hong Kong Scottish in 2018, after serving three years as Finance Director.  Roy was integral to the setting up of Hong Kong Scottish and has been a stalwart in the Stand from the beginning.

After qualifying as a Scottish Chartered Accountant in Aberdeen, Roy moved to Hong Kong in the early 1990s, taking up a technical position with Price Waterhouse.  It wasn’t long until Roy was recruited by Jardine Fleming and through a series of acquisitions and corporate developments, Roy found himself running investment banking and asset management businesses in Bangkok, London and New York before returning to Hong Kong as Chief Operating Officer of JP Morgan Asia Pacific in 2007.

While Roy is firmly committed to growing Hong Kong Scottish, he can be distracted by the exploits of Elgin City, in which he is a proud shareholder. Roy is also Cheiftain of the St Andrews Society. 

Stewart Saunders

President

Stewart was one of the driving forces behind the creation of Hong Kong Scottish and served as its first Chairman from 2012 to 2015, before assuming the role of Club President.  He has a keen interest in player welfare and can often be found in the middle of the end-of-match huddle.

An engineer by background, Stewart has had a long and distinguished career in the power industry heading up MANWEB and Selectusonline.com before taking the role of Chief Operating Officer of CLP, Hong Kong.

Stewart has a wealth of experience in sports club management including stock car racing and ice hockey, as well as rugby.  A native of Kirkcaldy, he also keeps an eye on the Raith Rovers scores.

A Hong Kong resident since the late 1980s, David is a Scottish Chartered Accountant who combines professional practice with a bit of teaching and a habit of starting businesses.

David served as Finance Director of the Hong Kong Rugby Union from 1992 to 1996 and was also the Finance Director of the first Sevens World Cup held in Hong Kong in 1997.

Martin Murray

Martin Murray

Board Member

Martin, a founding life member, joined the Finance Committee in 2013. With a family pedigree of Scottish Border rugby, and strongly related administrative credentials, there were high hopes of a successful rugby career. However, schooled in Edinburgh he took up hockey and naturally became an accountant instead. Martin moved to Glasgow to qualify as a Scottish Chartered Accountant, followed by a move to Hong Kong with Ernst & Young.

In 1995, Martin moved to the Swire Group where he has held a number of finance related positions in Hong Kong, USA and Australia. Currently, he is Finance Director of Cathay Pacific Airways.

Martin has proved his worth as an after-dinner speaker and is often in demand at rugby dinners, as well as a supper or two at the end of each January.

 Ken holds a law degree from Edinburgh University, qualified as a Scottish Chartered Accountant and is currently Chairman Greater China for the international accounting firm Mazars, as well as Vice Chairman of its Group Governance Council.
