In the last 2 years we really have not utilised the Food cart very well at all home games but due to rising costs of grounds and player numbers, we will need to ensure we get maximum value from the Pirates Cafe. We will be asking every parent to assist with the cafe at least twice per year.
Please remember that The Pirates rely on Sponsorship and the Canteen income so please assist when your team manager ask you to.
