Paisley Pirates win SNL Trophy

It’s been 20 years since the Pirates last won the league. In 3 seasons Coach Ian Turley has transformed a club that was left for dead by the previous management into Champions.

In the players and fans opinions this makes him a real local hero in their book. Here are some Paisley Photographs of the trophy being presented by Renfrewshire Provost Anne Hall.
