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."
