  Paisley Pirates took time out from their on ice exploits to play “good neighbour” at the weekend, lending the Braehead Clan a netminder when the Elite League team faced a crisis as a result of an injury to their first choice goalie, Michael Zajkowski.   “I got a call from Gareth Chalmers from the Clan at tea time on Friday night asking if we could help them out, as they had two tough games coming up on the Saturday and Sunday against Belfast Giants and Nottingham Panthers respectively,” said Pirates coach Ian Turley.   “We didn’t want them to …

LOCAL DERBY FOR PIRATES

North Ayr Wild

Paisley Pirates hit the road again, after another blank weekend, to make the short trip to Saltcoats to line up once more against the local North Ayrshire Wild, Pirates having won the corresponding match at Braehead Arena 8-1 a few weeks ago. “I’m expecting a difficult match on the Wild’s home ice,” commented coach Ian Turley. “We played well against them at the beginning of the month, I thought they didn’t play so well, and we were able to take advantage to pick up another good win.” “I think it will be a different story this weekend however, as they’ll …

Paisley Pirates continued their impressive start to the season after beating Moray Typhoons 10-0 at the Braehead Arena in their last match, but coach Ian Turley is warning against allowing any hint of over confidence to creep in.   He commented, “It’s very important that we as a club keep doing what we always do, and that’s to look at the next game as the one which we focus on-that’s the return match against North Ayrshire Wild next Saturday, and the fixture will get our fullest attention and priority. Only when that game is finished, will we then turn our …

PAISLEY PIRATES   10        MORAY TYPHOONS   0     Pirates duly completed a straightforward victory against the Typhoons in a match where the ultimate result was never in serious doubt, but it took their now regular third period surge to put a convincing result on the scoreboard.   The home side opened with pace and were ahead in under 90 seconds as Haydn Bain finished off a passing movement with Hassan and Thorp to score the go ahead goal. However, in spite of having most of the play for the remainder of the session Pirates were unable to add to the …

Pirates are back in action this weekend as they host Moray Typhoons, who make the long journey south to provide the opposition this Sunday at Braehead Arena (face off 6.00pm).   “Yes, it’ll be good to get back onto the ice for some competitive action,” said Coach Ian Turley. “Sometimes it’s good to get a weekend off, as it allows any of the boys carrying an injury an extra week to recover, but normally I’m looking for a game every weekend to keep us ticking over. I’ve got a lot of young players in the squad this year and they …
