The Smailes Goldie Hull Pirates are pleased to announce Trophy Supermarket as a sponsor partner for the 2018/19 season. They are a great local company who support ice hockey in Hull at all levels. This will be their inaugral season as Pirates sponsors, but they have been fans of the team since its inception and we are excited that they have decided to join us.

Trophy Supermarket will be a shirt sponsor with their company logo appearing on the sleeve of our jersey's. They will also provide the supporters club 'Player of the Month' award as well as all of the trophies for the end of season awards event.

Mike Gibbins of Trophy Supermarket said:
"Trophy Supermarket are thrilled to be supporting the Hull Pirates this season as a shirt sponsor. We can’t wait for the season to start and hopefully to see the team raise some silverware of their own!

Although Trophy Supermarket is a relatively new business, we have actually been providing trophies and awards since 1950 so we know winners and we know that the Pirates can win this season!

We have already been working with local junior hockey & rec teams and for us this is the next logical step in supporting ice hockey locally.

We think this season is going to be the most exciting yet and we're also super excited to be providing the Supporters’ Player of the Month and the End of Season Player Awards for the Hull Pirates."

Owner Shane Smith was as thrilled to welcome another local business to the Pirates organisation:
"We are very excited to have Trophy Supermarket on board for this season and develop this partnership with a great, local, company. It's fantastic to have Trophy Supermarket sponsor  our supporters club  player of the month awards and the end of season awards. We gave to extend a big thank you to Mike and his team for their support and it is fantastic to have yet another local business, and new sponsor, on board for the coming season."

This season is shaping up to be an unbelievable one, our organisation is going from strength to strength and we cannot wait for September. There seems to be a real buzz around hockey in the city once more, it is fantastic to be a part of it with you all!
