No Panic For Final Two


With two places still to fill for the 2020 Pirates, the Poole management refuse to be rushed into making any early declarations of their full septet, but wish to reassure supporters that they remain resolute in making their SGB Championship side a title-challenging outfit.

Co-promoter Dan Ford explained, "We know that Poole fans might be getting a bit anxious that we seem to be behind the other sides in completing our line-up, but we are determined to take our time and ensure we do our very best in making the right decisions.

"We have come out of one of the club's most successful decades and despite dropping down into the Championship it has not lessened our appetite for success. We want the twenties to be equally, if not more,  successful for the club as we embark on this new era.

"Already we have named five of our team and I think most fans would agree that in Danny, Adam, Steve, Stefan and Josh form a strong quintet. Our intentions do not stop there however, and I trust that our fans will believe us when we declare that  we want to make it as strong as possible. We are considering all our options and will be taking a very keen interest in this season's Australian Championship to see if that competition throws up any surprises.

"We are of the view that we pretty much have the pick of whoever becomes available, now that our rival sides are complete and we are determined to make the most of that position."
