Last Saturday, Siu Sai Wan Sports Ground became the venue of an unlikely football match which pitched Legislative Council members against government officials.
With former president Jasper Tsang no longer on the team, the LegCo side faced an uphill struggle to replicate their 17-game winning streak.
Pro-establishment lawmaker Eunice Yung became the first ever female player to join the side.
At only 23, pro-democracy legislator Nathan Law would have been at the prime of his career, had he become a professional footballer. According to Oriental Daily, he kept up the energy throughout almost all of the game.
Just as in previous years, “Long Hair” Leung Kwok-hung was ever-present.
The game ended 1:1.
