George Mills will remain at Albion next year after he signed a new two-year-deal at Brickfields and praised the atmosphere at the club in the process.

Kieran Hallett has further strengthened his Albion side for next year by securing the signature of 27-year-old George who said that Albion’s nine game winning run was testament to the quality of the squad and the good ethos and atmosphere at the club.

“We have got a really good squad,” said George. “There is a good ethos and a good atmosphere and everyone seems to be buying into it and with the good winning run we have had, it shows.”

Both player/coach Kieran and owner Bruce Priday were influential in George’s decision to stay at Brickfields, which was made easy by the club.

“I was chatting to Bruce,” said George. “I was keen to sign; I have had a good year and enjoyed myself down here. I was keen to sign and he was keen to get me back signed and involved for the future so we both sat down and have a chat and it was easily sorted really.

“[Kieran] is brilliant. As a coach he is really really good and he has got a really good bond with the guys outside of rugby and then he can be more serious when it comes to the coaching side of things and I think that is a good coach to have and they are good qualities on his part.”

George acknowledges that the aim for Albion next season is to be promoted and says that the future of the club has a lot of potential.

“The club itself is very well established,” said George. “There is no stopping Plymouth doing anything really. If we keep getting the players and the support we can go as far as we want really.”
