Dutch East Indies Tour of Loh Hwa 1930

Before arriving in the Dutch East Indies, the touring Loh Hwa side from Shanghai had played two matches in Singapore, beating Malayan Chinese 2-1 on July 13 at the Jalan Besar stadium and losing 0-3 to Singapore on July 16 at the Anson Road stadium.
Their stay on Java, where they arrived on July 20, attending the semifinal for the Nieuws van den Dag beker between Hercules and U.M.S. on the same day (Hercules winning 5-3 after extra time), was organised by U.M.S., the leading Chinese club in Batavia. Loh Hwa were apparently strengthened by a few guest players from Hongkong for some matches; also Sie Liong from Soerabaja club side Tiong Hoa joined them at some stage during the tour.
After completing their visit to the Dutch East Indies, they played at least one more match in Singapore, drawing 0-0 against S.C.F.A. on September 13 at the Jalan Besar stadium.
Originally the Loh Hwa side had intended to travel on to Europe, playing matches in Italy, Austria and England, but this trip was called off in the wake of controversy around illegal payments by the club, for which it was cautioned by the Shanghai FA. Following this scandal, Loh Hwa's captain and star player Lee Wai-tong moved to Hongkong side Nan Hwa (South China) at the end of 1930, with which he returned to Java in 1931 before settling in Batavia where he joined local Chinese club U.M.S. in the 1932/33 season. Outside right K.S. Tso (Tso Kway Sing) joined Tiong Hoa of Soerabaja at the beginning of 1931 and played many matches for the S.V.B. in the stedenwedstrijden between 1931 and 1934.
