All the Latest News & Fixtures...
The 2020/21 season has now drawn to a close and I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who has helped us along the way through this strange and challenging period. The staff/players and volunteers who have shown unwavering commitment to getting the season played and facilitating match days behind closed doors, the fans who have continued to support us through Go Fund Me donations, retail purchases, online streaming and messages of support and our sponsors who have stood by us and helped us navigate through the financial pressures faced by us all.
There was a great deal of uncertainty around whether the season would even get underway and even though it was a short one in the end it has been filled with great rugby and great memories, from the high of day one with the win against Saracens to the lows of some frustrating defeats and some unfortunate injuries.
As with any season we are saying goodbye to some players who have given their all in their time as a Pirate and we wish them all the best with the next chapter. We will also be welcoming some new faces when we regroup for pre-season training and hope that we can welcome fans back in a ‘normal’ capacity for the start of the new season.
Our season tickets would have normally launched by now but please bear with us as we wait to see how the restrictions continue to ease. We want to be sure that a full capacity crowd will be allowed before these are launched and will be announcing details via the website, newsletter and socials when we are able. We are also busy with sponsorship for next season so if you are interested in discussing bespoke package options then we would love to speak to you.
Enjoy the summer months and we look forward to seeing everyone back at the Mennaye very soon. We have some great pre-season friendlies lined up which will be announced over the summer so watch this space!
