South East Asia Tour of Chung Hwa 1931

Shortly after Nan Hwa (the Hongkong club also known as South China) had left Java, city rivals Chung Hwa (better known as Chinese Athletic Association) arrived on the island. They had been champions of Hongkong for three seasons running (1928 to 1930) and were apparently strengthened for the trip by guest players from Shanghai and Tientsin (Tianjin). Other reports state they included players from other Hongkong clubs, viz. Hwa Tong (East China) and a Portuguese club. They paid a visit to Makassar on August 4th but did not play a match there (three years later, they returned to the city to play four matches as part of the celebrations of the 20th anniversary of local club Excelsior). After visiting Java, most of Chung Hwa's first team players returned directly to Hongkong but the remainder of the side played four more matches in Singapore.
