It was a good night for the Pirates last night. Not only did the Pirates win their third game in a row with a 17-11 victory against the Kamikazes but we were joined by two fans- Donna (and bump) and Alice's beau- Rob, who were able to cheer us on from the sidelines as well … Continue reading Pirates flush Kamis down the Khazi.
Finally the summer has arrived and we were treated to a great night of softball in Regents Park against the Tigers. You couldn't ask for a better game- Paul back with the Pirates, 3 home runs (Neil x2, Gids, Chris), great batting (1000% Dave, Chris), some excellent fielding (Nads double play, Shorty at short stop) … Continue reading Pirates tame the Tigers in Regents Park
For a change Lady Luck was on our side last night following a well deserved Pirate victory over The Mob at John Archer Way . With the Mob sitting pretty at second in the league and only one loss to the Fuzzy Ducks our win could only be described as a serious upset that came about through … Continue reading Pirates outgun The Mob!
It was supposed to be an easy victory- the Pirates were on a run of 3 victories vs the Voodoos on a 4 game losing streak. What could go wrong? Plenty as it turned out! With Alice unable to make it on the day, Lorraine ill and Nads out of the country we had to … Continue reading Voodoos curse the Pirates
Following on from Firstball last weekend we were all looking forward to the possibility of winning our first league game against a newly promoted London Tigers. The stats showed that they came second last year to the Fuzzy Ducks so a win was by no means guaranteed especially considering our recent form. Unfortunately (or perhaps … Continue reading A win for the Pirates!
With two matches played and two losses Firstball was always going to be about coming together, having some fun and trying some new positions. With a tough opener against the favourites (Fuzzy Ducks) we were made to pay for batting with the exception with Shaz who hit a great shot and made second (earning the … Continue reading Firstball- Pirates take the plate!
And so it begins! Unlike last season the rain didnt ruin the preseason friendly although thanks to Wandsworth Council it was near impossible to see the pitch through the uncut grass. This time the friendly was against the Comets (black - div 1 and yellow - div 3) who came fully prepared with a full … Continue reading Pre season vs the Comets
It's fair to say that things are unlikely to go your way when your team shrinks from seven players down to three in the space of a morning. With Neil and Shorty confirmed as the first casualties it looked as if it was all going to be over before it began when Sohan texted to … Continue reading Green Pirates take third place
Following our good form pre Christmas we found ourselves in the Raiders Cup against the top six teams. Given that we were whipped 7-1 by the Joe's Hoes in our first meeting it was going to be a tough evening as they were our second opponent and we had a selection dilemma on our hands. … Continue reading Playing with the big boys
With the festive season well under way we had a few absentees this week (Hermes, Sohan, Alice and Nadine) but were fortunate to call upon the services of Ryan, Tesh and as well as Mr Consistent aka Shorty. Chris, myself and Donna made up the rest of the squad. With an awesome practice session last week … Continue reading Pirates stun the Raiders!
