Due to some last minute shenanigans both the Buccs and the Parrots are on the hunt for new players, especially girls. Buccs are based in Wandsworth and are in Minors 2 whereas Parrots are Minors 3 and based in Regents Park. Just in case anyone is not familiar with the term minors/majors it means that we … Continue reading Wanted! New players for Buccs and Parrots

Managed by Mendy and Dave the Buccs will be playing in Minors 2 at John Archer way on Wednesday night while the Pirates will be playing there for home games … Continue reading PSC is growing!
After a narrow escape last night we can breathe a small sigh of relief as we are out of the relegation zone for the moment. With Tornados beating the Raiders last night they didn't do us any favours as it is still possible for them to avoid relegation, especially if they beat us. As Tom … Continue reading MUST. WIN. GAMES!!
It's been a long time since the last post when Pirates topped the league with 3 wins out of 4 row at the beginning of the season. A mercy at the hands of the Raiders saw the beginning of the losing streak with heavy losses against the Badgers (9-28), Meteors 3 (8-23) followed by the one … Continue reading Mixed fortunes for the Pirates
Following a ruthless (not Ruth less) victory against the Knights last Thursday the Pirates have risen to the top of the Minors 1 table. It's been a fair few years since we enjoyed this position so the away game against Raiders Red at Bellevue road will be a key one.
Following a tight game against the Meteors last week it was time to let loose against the re-promoted Knights. Last year we fared well against them with a home and away victory but as we know all too well in softball you can never underestimate your opponent (anyone remember losing twice to an awful Hampstead Heat … Continue reading Pirates kick Knight arse!

Once again the guys were notorious in their absence with Chris on his … Continue reading Pirates bounce back with win over Meteors

Given the ominous weather forecast it couldn't have turned out better … Continue reading Captain Carr ties the knot!

Unlike last year we were playing up a division (white) which meant a mix of teams from Minors 1 and Majors 2 including Kamikazes (Min1), Knights … Continue reading Firstball 2016- Pirates take 2nd place!
Just two days to go and the Pirate's season kicks off against a newly promoted Moanado team. For anyone that can't remember the last time we played them it was the reverse fixture to perhaps one of the most bad tempered game we've played in. In case you can't remember here's a refresher: https://pimlicopirates.com/pirates-match-reports/2012-match-reports/july-3-pirates-vs-tornadoes/ A … Continue reading Pirates: May preview
