The Glasgow Clan and Paisley Pirates are jointly delighted to announce a new working partnership that will see both clubs further strengthen their links.
The Clan, who compete in the Elite Ice Hockey League, and the Pirates, who compete in the Scottish National League, both play out of the 3,500 capacity Braehead Arena in Renfrewshire.
The new partnership will see the Clan provide the Pirates with commercial and marketing support while ultimately providing a pathway for young Scottish players in the Greater Glasgow area to progress from junior hockey to opportunities to train and play with the Clan.
Clan Chief Operating Officer Gareth Chalmers commented: “I’m delighted to be able to confirm this new working partnership with the Paisley Pirates.
“It’s something we have been discussing for a couple of years now and will not only benefit both the Clan and the Pirates, but I believe the wider West of Scotland hockey community.
“With the Pirates rich history and the fact they’re right on our door step, this is really something that should have happened a number of years ago, so it’s really exciting to get it finalised.
“We’re looking forward to working with Ian Turley, Adam Walker, Jackie & Ian Turley plus everyone at the Paisley Pirates.
Paisley Pirates Operations Manager Jackie Turley commented: “I’m delighted that we are able to solidify our relationship with Gareth and the Glasgow Clan.
“This partnership will bring hockey and the local community closer together and provide a platform for our young players to strive for.
“The Pirates are dedicated to developing top level British players and are excited to see what the future holds for both clubs.”

The partnership between the EIHL’s Glasgow Clan and SNL’s Paisley Pirates, will have no effect on the Clan’s affiliation with the NIHL’s Solway Sharks. The new partnership further strengths the progression of British players in the West of Scotland.
