The Buccaneers are expected to strengthen their options in
the off-season after ending the domestic season empty handed, and will
undoubtedly delve into the transfer market for recruits.
However, the Sea Robbers will first comb through their own
paddocks for potential signings, and Palacios hopes those who fit the bill can
do enough to impress in the coming weeks.
"We have produced a number of great players over the
years who have not only represented the club very well but they have also gone
on to achieve greatness and do the nation proud in the process," Palacios told
Pirates' official website.
"We want to use this opportunity to keep with the
culture of the club of identifying and unearthing new talent.
“Therefore we urge all youngsters who are interested and who
qualify as per the requirements we have set forth to grab the opportunity to
achieve their goals."
