CHELSEA fans in Hong Kong are getting together for drinks at the Winners Bar in Lan Kwai Fong tonight from 8pm to send off the lucky ten club members who are returning to the UK for next weekend's FA Cup Final.

Alas there aren't any spare tickets to raffle, but there will be the latest transfer news and pop panel jury on the chart-topping Cup Final Song featuring Suggs and the boys.

Premier Soccer will also be going along to take pictures, so bring your flags and celery.

SOUTH China's No.1 Hong Kong Celtic Supporters' Club will hold their regular meeting in The Mariners' Club, Middle Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, on Thursday, beginning at 8pm.

Topics for discussion will include the possibility of an end of season function to bid farewell to military members leaving the territory, a raffle for Tommy Gemmell's Lisbon memorabilia, election of office-bearers for next term, suggestions for functions and activities along with dates to begin meetings next season.

Videos of the latest Scottish football available will also be shown.

NOTTINGHAM Forest Supporters' Club will meet for the last time of the season at the Old China Hand in Lockhart Road, Wanchai, on may 20.

Committee member Trevor Taylor hopes that members will make a big effort to attend the final function where he expects much drowning of sorrows will be experienced after Forest's relegation.
