Former Hong Kong Davis Cup player Mark Bailey is set to make a return to the SAR - as coach of the Hong Kong hockey squad. Bailey, who represented the SAR in numerous Davis Cup tennis matches, is being lined up to take charge of the squad in a six- month contract which will take the team through to the Asian Games in Bangkok in December. He is currently coaching the Malaysian Davis Cup team. At the moment, Bailey is the only applicant interested in the six-month contract although Hong Kong Hockey Association vice-president Billy Dillon felt Bailey was the right man for the job. 'He has a solid reputation in tennis but Mark knows many of the national hockey players and played top hockey himself. 'He's very good in setting up physical training programmes as well,' said Dillon. Bailey is set to replace outgoing coach Colin Cooper, who will return to Britain next month. The new appointment would need to be approved by the Sports Development Board, who is subsiding $300,000 to hire a new Hong Kong coach. Cooper masterminded Hong Kong's victory at last year's Asian Hockey Federation Cup - the SAR's first international victory in almost 50 years.
