THE OTHER STUFF

In the club’s 19 year history, they have only ever faced two teams beginning with the letter ‘P’ and they were both called the PIRATES.

The Stars first encountered both clubs in their debut season, when they played in the British National League.

Dundee competed alongside both PETERBOROUGH PIRATES and PAISLEY PIRATES  in the 2001-2002 season and whilst the English club finished 10th and PAISLEY 9th, the Stars went on to win both the league and playoff title.

However, that would be the Taysiders only season of playing against Peterborough and it was also the Paisley club’s last year in the BNL but they would face the Stars again in the 2005-2006 SNL, SPL and Northern League campaigns.

Dundee and Paisley went head to head for the next five years until the Stars moved into the Elite League but two seasons before then, the PIRATES rebranded as the Braehead Paisley Pirates.
