Pirates sign partnership with Little Liz Bar
Meanwhile, Pirates have signed a partnership with little Liz Bar and Restaurant that has seen the club buy them a kit as they cement a long-term partnership.
Since parting ways with G4S Security Company, Pirates had not acquired a sponsor and for three seasons have been wearing the security company’s kit.
The new signing is a big boost to a club that is rebuilding at a time it lost most of its players who went into retirement, according to coach Anthony Kinene.
“This is a big start for us and I am optimistic that this beginning will result into a long-lasting relationship that will see Pirates grow to its past glory.”
