Kelvin NG Wai Hei, who caught the snitch for Team Hong Kong in their historic win against Finland in the IQA Quidditch World Cup last year, will be the Head Coach cum player. TSE Kai Lun from the UNSW Quidditch Society will be the Assistant Coach cum player. Also in the squad are two players with quidditch experience in Scotland, Felicity GUITE and Kait MACDONALD.
