Plymouth Albion v Rotherham 291113

Plymouth Albion continued building their squad for next season when 23 year Irish back Ben Woods put pen to paper on a new one year contract, with the option of a second season.

Woods, who joined Albion from Old Belvedere last summer, has played eleven Championship games this season as well as being a regular in the British & Irish Cup teams.

Speaking about the signing of Woods, who has representative honours with Connacht, Albion head coach James Shanahan said, “I have been very impressed with Ben’s professional attitude and work ethic. Whenever he plays he puts his body on the line and he leads by example.

“Importantly for a relatively small squad Ben covers a number of positions as he is able to play 13, wing or full back. I’m really happy that he will be with us next season.”

Woods became the sixth member of the current squad to sign a new deal with Plymouth Albion.
