Paisley Pirates take a break from league action this weekend as they playback to back Scottish Cup ties against Kirkcaldy Kestrels on Saturday and Sunday. They are away to the Fife side in the first leg, before returning to Braehead Arena for the second and deciding leg 24 hours later (face off 4.30pm).
The club has faced a difficult time in recent weeks and will be hoping that a change of competition will see them return to something like their best form. Player/coach Adam Walker commented, “Kestrels have improved since we last played them and they had a good result in Aberdeen last Saturday, so we need to be ready to face them.”
Pirates put up a gutsy performance last Sunday against the Solway Sharks, and will be hoping that two similar displays over both nights will allow them to progress to the next stage of the competition. After a few average home displays in recent weeks, the last few home games have shown some signs of better things returning, and they will be hoping to see more improvement at the weekend.

2nd DECEMBER, LONDON – TUI, the world’s leading holiday company and the UK’s number one holiday provider, has announced its winter 2020 programme with the addition of new destinations in Egypt, Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh.
The new flights to Hurghada and Sharm El Sheikh from Glasgow for winter 2020 are on sale now, with weekly flights to Hurghada operating on a Saturday and flights to Sharm El Sheikh departing on a Wednesday, from 4th November 2020.
TUI have also announced an expanded programme to the Canaries for winter 2020, with the introduction of winter flights to Fuerteventura on a Saturday and additional flights to Tenerife operating on a Sunday. 10 and 11 night holidays to Gran Canaria will now also be available for winter 2020 with the addition of a weekly flight operating every Thursday from Glasgow airport, giving holidaymakers in the region even more flexibility.
RETURNING TO SHARM EL SHEIKH
Famous for the glistening red sea and amazing sandy beaches, customers can expect high quality hotels and the year round sun the region is known for. Four hotels including old favourites along the beautiful Red Sea coast are now on sale, with even more in the pipeline.
The EXCLUSIVE 5T TUI Magic Life Sharm El Sheikh, is an old favourite, loved and enjoyed by customers who previously travelled back year after year. The Magic Life concept resort is picture-perfect, overlooking the Straits of Tiran. There is really something for everyone at from a stylish spa, fitness gym, sporting activities and professional live entertainment. The all-inclusive beach resort has 3 swimming pools plus 4 restaurants offering delicious regional and international cuisine.
The elegant EXCLUSIVE 5T Reef Oasis Blue Bay includes a beautiful private beach, a waterpark and a large outdoor infinity pool perfect for cooling down in the sun and observing the stunning views. The hotel has a fantastic location, not far from the famous Naama Bay. There is so much choice when it comes to eating out – from the onsite Italian restaurant to the pub bar which serves food 24 hours a day.
TUI UK&I’s Director of Aviation Planning, Karen Switzer said: “Earlier this month TUI announced its winter 2020 and summer 2021 holiday programme which has since expanded with more destinations and added flights. We are delighted that the additional flights provide holidaymakers departing from our regional airports with even more choice when deciding where to go away. With additional flying capacity and more than 1,000 hotels already on sale for summer 2021 it gives those planning ahead the opportunity to choose the most suitable airport, destination and hotel.
“The customer is at the heart of everything we do and this additional growth to Egypt and the canaries from Glasgow airport demonstrates our continued commitment for people to discover their smile with us.”
Paul White, Head of Aviation at Glasgow Airport, said: “TUI’s decision to introduce an additional 50,000 seats to the group’s Winter 20 Programme will deliver even greater passenger choice on some of our most popular routes.
“We are really pleased to see the return of services to Hurghada and also Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt following a five-year absence. Both Red Sea-based resorts are ideal winter sun destinations and have always been hugely popular with our customers.
“This latest announcement is very welcome news indeed, particularly as it follows TUI’s decision last month to introduce 170,000 additional seats to its Summer 2020 season.”
In spite of the final score, this was another improved performance by Pirates against a team of semi-professional players, with Sharks’ import Heiskanen making a major difference to the outcome with no fewer than five goals in an entertaining game.
Pirates competed well with their opponents in the opening session and actually went ahead after two minutes on the powerplay as Spiers deflected a slapshot from Hamilton behind Johnston for the opener. Sharks came back within a few minutes and were level when Gapa scored, but Pirates responded in style and were back in front half a minute later as Harju broke down the left wing and flicked the puck beyond Johnston again to restore his team’s narrow advantage. This caused the Sharks to up the tempo as they levelled through the first of Haiskanen’s goals at the halfway point and Horne beat Morris before the flying Finn netted his second in the space of a minute to put the visitors 4-2 ahead at the first interval.
Pirates continued to put up a fight in the second session, although they were minus several key players, and made it a one goal game before the 25th minute as a flowing move involving Huber and Andreucci finished with Kenneth netting to make it 4-3. Henderson replied for the visitors before the halfway point to stretch the lead to two, before a quickfire double by Haiskanen and Houston took the score to 7-3 and probably ended in lingering hopes of an upset, taking the Sharks to 7-3 by the second break.
The home side continued to battle in the final session but could not match the clinical finishing of their opponents, as Haiskanen rounded off the scoring with a double in the final twenty minutes, to take the final score to 9-3, perhaps not an undeserved margin at the end, but maybe leaving Pirates feeling the final margin was somewhat unflattering in view of their efforts over the 60 minutes.
Pirates’ player/coach Adam Walker said after the match,*The boys battled hard and certainly put in the effort, but we’re still a bit away from where we want to be.”
Pirates next play Kirkcaldy Kestrels in a Scottish Cup quarter final (second leg) tie next Sunday at 4.30pm at Braehead, having played the first leg in Fife 24 hours earlier.
A seven-year-old boy amazed shoppers at intu Braehead with a virtuoso display on a piano that’s been placed in the mall.
Youngster Nathan Lee was described as a “genius” after he climbed on to the stool at the piano and gave people an impromptu mini-concert.
A crowd gathered around the piano in the upper mall between Marks and Spencer and Café Nero and gave Nathan a round of applause after a faultless, performance of Mozart’s Turkish March; Flight of the Bumblebee, by Rimsky Korsakov and the more modern ballad, All of Me, by John Legend.
Amazingly, Nathan, from Glenburn, in Paisley has only been playing the piano and taking lessons for two years and his school friends at Glasgow Academy have already dubbed him King of the Piano.
The youngster was at intu Braehead with his mum and dad, Ning and Eddie, who runs the Kwang Tung Chinese restaurant, in Paisley. When Nathan started playing shoppers couldn’t believe how good he was and stopped to video the youngster.
When he finished people coming over to his parents to tell them how brilliant their son was on the piano.
One woman said: “That boy of yours – he’s a genius.”
Another man in the cafe told them: “That’s an amazing talent he has. I can’t believe he’s so young and can play the piano like that.”
A woman added: “I’ve never seen anything like it. The speed of his fingers going over the piano keys was mind-boggling and he’s so small his feet couldn’t even reach the ground when he was siting on the stool.”
Nathan’s dad Eddie said: “We don’t know where he gets the talent to play the piano from because neither his mum nor I are very musical.
“We noticed Nathan liked the piano because when he was younger every time he passed a piano he wanted to try to play it. We decided to get him lessons and it’s just gone on from there.
“After about a year having lessons we began to realise just how good he was, as he was then able to play full tunes and he sounded great.
“At the start, nobody at his school knew he could play piano, but at the end of Primary One when all the children were to perform something, Nathan said he would play the piano.
“That’s when we got a phone call from his teacher to say everybody was stunned how good he was. And then the older pupils started calling him King of the piano. We’re really proud of him.”
Eddie added: “We don’t know if he’ll go on to be a professional musician because although he can practise up to three hours some days, he says he wants to be a footballer when he grows up!”
Nathan’s piano teacher, Charles Dunn said: “Nathan has a rare musicality for his age and exciting potential. I also see a maturity in his playing, a remarkable enthusiasm and work ethic and he just loves performing
“He’s fantastic and I’m really proud of him.”
David Lyon, intu Braehead’s marketing manager said: “When Nathan started playing and our security staff saw the people stopping to listen to him play, word soon spread that there was an amazing boy playing the piano and everybody has been talking about him.
“We always like to bring a little fun and entertainment for visitors to intu Braehead and the piano that’s in the mall is self-playing, as well as being able to be played normally. Nathan is an amazing talent and the shoppers loved him.”

MARGARET Calderwood used to make a five-hour round trip bus journey to visit her favourite fashion store, Joules, in St Andrews, Fife.
But now she’s delighted as the 65-year-old can now WALK from her home in Renfrew to the newly-opened Joules store at intu Braehead.
Margaret yesterday (Wednesday July 27) queued for more than an hour outside the store in the upper mall to make sure she was the first customer through the doors when the fashion retailer opened at 10am.
Around 50 people were also waiting for the store to open and Margaret was rewarded with a £200 Joules gift card, as the next four customers were given a £100 gift card with a £50 gift card going to the next 15 customers.
Margaret said: “I’m a big fan of Joules and I love the clothes they sell. I’ve been buying from them for years.
“I used to travel by bus to their store in St Andrew’s to buy clothes and outfits because I like their fashion styles and the quality of what they sell.
“It’s amazing they have now opened at intu Braehead because that’s not far from where I live and I can now walk to the centre and visit the Joules store. Since they’re so close I’ll be visiting them more often now.”
The intu Braehead Joules is the company’s second standalone store in Scotland.
Andrea Gray, Chief Retail Officer at Joules said: “We’re excited to be strengthening our presence in Scotland and we know intu Braehead is exactly the right place for us to be.”
Marketing manager at intu Braehead, David Lyon said: “Well done to Margaret for being first customer through the doors of the new Joules store.
“And it’s great to hear she won’t need to make such a trek to visit her favourite fashion retailer.
Joules is a fantastic addition to the wide mix of retail brands we already have at intu Braehead. It will certainly appeal to our style-conscious shoppers.”
