Croatian National player signs for Plymouth Albion

Croatian-born Filip Perica is thrilled to be signing for Plymouth Albion and the chance to play top level rugby – a sport he has loved since childhood. “Nobody in my family had played rugby before and then my older brother started playing and I did too. We’ve always been very competitive, like most families, and I fell in love with the sport from the very beginning,” says Filip, 22, from Zagreb. An injury put paid to his brother’s playing but a fractured ankle turned out to be a lucky break for Filip. “I was studying sports at university at home...

Jack’s Back From New Zealand to Sign for Albion

Plymouth Albion has strengthened the front row with the addition of Jack Higgins to the squad for the coming season. Jack is back in the UK from New Zealand which the 27-year-old has called home for the past ten years. He began playing rugby at school in Coventry. “I was a late starter really because I’d played football up to the age of 14, but I wasn’t doing very well,” he says. “I moved school where the sport was predominantly rugby and so I switched. “I went to New Zealand at the age of 17 on a sports scholarship. I...

New Albion Signing, Koree Britton ‘Has something to prove’

Plymouth Albion has signed Torquay-born Koree Britton. The hooker says he’s delighted to be joining Albion, particularly as one of his best friends, Dan Mugford is in the squad. “He’s half the reason why I’m putting my boots back on,” he says. “We’ve known each other since we were nine and we’ve kept in touch.” Koree was only four-years-old when he started at Dartmouth minis with his older brother. “I was running around like a headless chicken, tackling my brother and all his mates. He lost interest but I carried on,” he says. As a teenager, he joined the Exeter Chiefs Youth  and also represented Devon u15/u16 and the England Under 18/20s. He played for Gloucester,...

Dan Mugford joins the coaching team

Plymouth Albion’s new head coach, Ben Gulliver, has made three crucial coaching appointments to help prepare the National One side for the forthcoming season. Exeter Chiefs player Gareth Steenson will continue as a player for the Devon team but take on a coaching role with the backs at Plymouth Albion.

Carl, who joined Exeter from the Cornish Pirates in 2012, was forced to retire suddenly last...

Dean Squire Renews Contract

Centre Dean Squire says he’s pleased to be returning to Plymouth Albion for a fourth season, where he still feels there’s plenty of room for development. “We went through a bit of a tough patch at the start of the year but we managed to get ourselves out of a sticky situation to finish in the top five,” he says. “We took a hard look at ourselves and it was great to see that we had enough in us to turn it around and things started to click. When we did lose games, we weren’t really a million miles away...
