Despite already being promoted Pirates finished off the season with a nail biter of a game against their old feline adversaries- Thundercats. After 2 innings including a shut out of the Pirates in the 2nd it looked as if a potential upset was on the cards until the Pirates managed to pull the themselves ahead … Continue reading Pirates win final game
After the disappointment of the abandoned game last week against the Tigers (will it be called off/will in not debacle) it was business as usual for the Buccaneers as they clinically despatched the Knight Sliders on Monday knight at Clissold Park. Once again the Buccs played very defensively with Gem in particular creating a 'gem … Continue reading Buccing hell- we could be promoted?!

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.

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
