It would mean that snooker has returned to Hong Kong, but, alas, after last year’s successful tournament to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the handover, it appears that hopes of making it a regular thing are disappearing. Davis, Hendry, White would be joined by the top pros of that era including Dennis Taylor, Terry Griffiths, Neil Foulds, Cliff Thorburn, Tony Meo and a host of others.
Yet a year earlier, Hong Kong had beaten China in a famous World Cup qualifier with our two central defenders easily handling high balls to the taller mainland forwards because they were doing it week in and week out for their clubs against powerful European strikers.
The likes of Dale Tempest and John Spencer arrived in Hong Kong after the ban on foreigners was lifted.
Tempest stayed long enough to play for Hong Kong while Spencer returned to UK where he had successful spells with his boyhood club Glasgow Rangers, Chelsea and Everton.
Neither were they about the dawning of a great new era as Hong Kong returned to China while keeping its sporting autonomy.
It was about a sporting culture that was palpably richer than it is now.
It wasn’t only British players who lit up Hong Kong Stadium.
