The Smailes Goldie Hull Pirates are pleased to reveal that Needlers will return as part of our sponsor team for the 2018/19 season. We have a long standing partnership with Alistair and Needlers and are really excited that they have chosen to continue to support us. Needlers, as the UK's leading supplier of PPE, safety and hygiene products to the food industry, are another local company working at a regional and national level whose brand we are proud to represent.

Alistair of Needlers said:

“We’re all about supporting local organisations that contribute to Hull, and Hull Pirates have been one organisation in particular we continue to support. Good luck to the team this season and thank you to everyone behind the scenes!"

Hull Pirates owner Shane Smith added:

"I am really pleased that Needlers have chosen to continue to be a part of our organisation again. It is a relationship that I am particularly proud of and it is a pleasure to be associated with them again".

We continue to grow as an organisation and, thanks to solid foundations being laid for the past three years, we have a sustainability that has not been seen in this city for a long time. But we need you, our fans, to do your bit too. We need you behind the team week in, week out, we want to fill the Pirates Den and show that not only is hockey in Hull viable but it is thriving and growing!

Come and support your Hull Pirates this Sunday when we face the Swindon Wildcats in the Autumn Cup, BE THE DIFFERENCE!
