Pirates prepare for season with camp (8 April 2014)
2014 team captains announced
With the start of the American Football season fast approaching, the Pirates adult team spent last weekend preparing with an intensive three day residential training camp at Inverclyde National Sports Centre. Over 65 players, staff and coaches descended on the facility just outside of Largs, dubbed Scotland 's centre for sporting excellence.
At camp the players also voted for the four captains who will lead them on and off the field this season. On offense, running back Iain Dick and quarterback Ryan Hunter were voted in for the third season in a row, and on defense linebacker Andrew McGowan was voted in for his third captaincy, while fellow linebacker Blair McTague was voted captain for the first time.
