HONG Kong athletes and sports officials were busy opening their Christmas presents yesterday. Here is what some of them received . . . or maybe should have received. Eastern Football Club: A bigger trophy cabinet to display all the silverware they have been winning during the past two seasons . . . and a lorry load of polish to keep it shining. Leslie Santos (right): A series of lessons with American entertainer David Copperfield because the midfield magician will need a full box of tricks to bring the glory days back to South China when he recovers from a knee injury. The Hong Kong Rugby Union: A gigantic box of Lego so they can build their own stadium for the Sevens . . . and then dismantle it and put it away for next year. Wembley International (Hong Kong) Ltd: Twenty five per cent from the sale of the gigantic box of Lego to the Hong Kong Rugby Union. Hong Kong rugby captain Stuart Krohn: A pocket calculator to keep track of the score the next time they play Taiwan. Hong Kong swimmer Robyn Lamsam: A collection of compact discs because she has broken all her records. Hong Kong Sports Development Board executive director Howard Wells: A new three-piece suit with an armour-plated waistcoat to keep all the knives out of his back. Hong Kong Amateur Athletic Association chairman William Ko: A pair of high-powered binoculars to see how the Shenzhen AAA manage to spend $500,000 in organising their section of the Hong Kong-China cross-border marathon. Hong Kong Cricket Association chairman Peter Slack: A sackful of sponsors for the national team's trip to Kenya for the ICC Trophy in February. The Hong Kong Tennis Association: A map of the New Territories and an instruction booklet on how to use the KCR to hand to their top young players. This would help them find the Hong Kong Sports Institute. South China coach Raymond Ng Wai-man: A pair of spectacles to replace his blinkers so he can get a clearer view of what's happening on the field. Maybe then he won't just blame the foreign players when South China lose a game. Hong Kong teenager Chan Man-yee: A cookery book specialising in the preparation and presentation of turtle blood-based recipes ready for her training stint in the Liaoning mountains with Chinese running coach Ma Junren. Dickies find a fair way to salvage some Shield pride SCOTTISH striker Graham Harvey gained a wee measure of revenge for Instant-Dict in a replay of their Emperor Exchange Challenge Shield final against Eastern . . . on the golf course at Discovery Bay. Harvey scored twice for the Dickies in a memorable Shield showdown at Mongkok Stadium last Sunday but still finished on the losing side as Eastern won a penalty shootout to retain the trophy. Representatives from both teams met on the golf course the following day for a friendly challenge match - and Harvey made no mistake this time. The 31-year-old two-handicapper, whose home club in Scotland is Royal Musselburgh, near Edinburgh, was the runaway winner of a Stableford competition with 35 points, seven clear of his strike-partner Ian McParland as the Dickies pulled off the old 1-2. The Eastern team of Ross Greer and Iain Hesford were close behind McParland but, unlike in the final when Eastern produced two equalisers, there was no way back this time. Harvey, a former club champion at Royal Musselburgh, said: ''It was a good day out and nice to win it - I just wish we could have come out on top the previous day. ''Ross 'phoned me on the morning of the golf match just to make sure we were still turning up.'' CCC's Shark puts unique twist on his killer spin WATCH out, there's a shark on the loose in the Hong Kong Saturday cricket league. Peter White, a 45-year-old magistrate from Melbourne, is better known as ''Shark'' by his teammates at Craigengower Cricket Club. And he has taken a few chunks out of opponents this season with some remarkable bowling performances. On his seasonal debut, Shark's bowling figures against Police Sentinels read: 0.4 overs, three wickets for no runs. The last two wickets came off his last two deliveries to complete the innings - and put him on a hat-trick. CCC's tough selection policy saw him dropped for the next game, though, and he had to wait two weeks for his hat-trick ball, comfortably played by Saracens' Rob Gill. White went on to bowl four overs which cost 16 runs and yielded no wickets - and he had to wait another two weeks for his next chance. He responded with two wickets for no runs off only three deliveries against King George V School, giving him an average for the season of 3.2 - not bad for a fifth-change bowler. Teammate Rod Miles discovered the secret of Shark's success when CCC were on tour in Torquay, England. ''He told me I was the only off-spinner in Devon who didn't spin it. That's what fools them,'' said White.
