PLYMOUTH ALBION 41 – 22 ROSSLYN PARK

By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion head coach James Scaysbrook has praised the major effort of his team, after thumping second-placed Rosslyn Park 41-22 in their National Division One game on Saturday, extending their perfect record to four out of four wins in 2020. He was particularly impressed by their consistency at both the offensive and defensive ends of the game saying: “there was just a huge amount of effort and you saw some of the defensive sets in the first half, and then particularly in the second half we showed that we fought for one another, and that was the...

Canterbury 5 vs Plymouth 52

ALBION 8 TRY DEMOLITION IN KENT By Kevin Westlake Plymouth Albion were making their second-longest trip of the season to National League One strugglers Canterbury this weekend. Canterbury have not been able to keep pace in the league since their promotion in April 2019 and sat bottom of the pile on 9 points. Head Coach James Scaysbrook made only one change to the side which beat Old Elthamians at Brickfields the week before, with Scott Makepeace replacing Lewis Pearson. With conditions perfect for rugby, Albion set about looking to make it 3 wins from 3 in 2020. Albion certainly started...

16th November Darlington vs Plymouth

Darlington Mowden Park 49 – 22 Plymouth Albion By Kevin Westlake at the Northern Echo Arena This was the Plymouth sides’ longest trip of the season, and the Northern Echo Arena hasn’t been a happy hunting ground in recent years, but the dedicated band of Albion supporters who made the trip were looking forward to a good display after the impressive home win versus Birmingham Moseley the week before at Brickfields. Albion’s preparation in midweek had been good according to Head Coach Ben Gulliver, but the late withdrawal of talisman and club skipper Herbie Stupple meant Albion had to make...

26th October Plymouth vs Blackheath

Plymouth Albion 19-26 Blackheath By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion’s players looked downtrodden walking off the pitch on Saturday afternoon, as they suffered a 26-19 bonus point loss against Blackheath after an oddly flat performance. For the majority of the game the away side dictated the run of play, their experience showing as they comfortably held off the attempts of the young home side. Albion’s head coach Ben Gulliver was exasperated after the performance, saying: “I’m really frustrated. Fair play to Blackheath they were pretty good and we were pretty average for 60 or 70 minutes today. Sometimes you just have...

19th October Plymouth vs Sale FC

Plymouth Albion 33  –  22 Sale FC By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion cruised to a 33-22 victory, after their best first half performance of the season aided them in shutting out Sale FC in their National Division one clash. In his pre-match notes, Plymouth coach Ben Gulliver sang the praises of the work that had been put in off the pitch, writing: “the work of James Earp, Gareth Steenson and Carl Rimmer is starting to bear fruit in training and as a coaching group we are really excited at the prospect of taking on Sale.” Albion truly bloomed in the first half...

12th October Rosslyn Park vs Plymouth

Rosslyn Park 33 Plymouth Albion 17.  Report by Kevin Westlake at Priory Lane Round 6 of the National One campaign saw Albion travel to South West London following an impressive 41 – 20 triumph against a resolute Canterbury team at Brickfields a week ago. A number of injuries and a red card meant that Head Coach Ben Gulliver was forced to make changes for the trip to the current second placed team in the league, Rosslyn Park. Dan Mugford and Luke Chapman were both lost to serious injury, whilst influential winger Josh Skelcey has been omitted whilst he waits for judgement...

5th October Plymouth vs Canterbury

Plymouth Albion 41  – 20  Canterbury RFC By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion were able to claw back from what seemed to be an inevitable loss at half time to get their second bonus point win of the season against Kent side Canterbury on Saturday afternoon, as the home side romped to a  41-20 win, despite an abundance of first half set-backs. Albion coach Ben Gulliver described the game as bewildering, commenting; “I don’t think I’ve been involved in a game where you have two tries disallowed in the first 15 minutes, your fly-half breaks his leg, your loose-head snaps his Achilles, and to...

28th September Old Elthamians vs Plymouth

Old Elthamians 27 Plymouth Albion 20 Report by: Kevin Westlake / Images by: James Thompson After last weeks win over Rotherham at Brickfields, Albion supporters were looking for a less nerve-wracking more controlling from their team who have registered one win from the first three National One matches. Before the 500 mile round trip to South East London, Head Coach, Ben Gulliver told us that “matches in this league are going either way by one score and we have to be an 85 minute team”. Gulliver also mentioned the hard yards being covered in training, and the competitive nature of an...

Plymouth Albion 33-27 Rotherham Titans By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion head coach Ben Gulliver expressed his relief after his side scraped a narrow 33-27 victory over National League One rivals Rotherham Titans, scoring a converted try in additional time. Gulliver feared the win might be beyond their reach after the Titans scored a converted effort in the 78th minute to take the lead. But a late score from George Mills, converted by Dan Mugford sent the home crowd home happy and Albion into the top half of the table. After two league defeats from two, Gulliver admitted he was just...

14th September Cinderford vs Plymouth

CINDERFORD 36 – PLYMOUTH ALBION 29 Plymouth Albion suffered a second successive narrow, but high scoring defeat at Cinderford yesterday. For Albion’s shortest trip of the season, up the M5 to Gloucestershire, coach Ben Gulliver made a number of small tweaks to the side that narrowly lost to Bishops Stortford the week before at Brickfields. John Kelly and Luke Chapman joined the replacements bench following Sam Morley’s involvement for Exeter Chiefs’ in the Premiership 7s tournament at Northampton. The game started at a very high pace, with Cinderford making early advances into Albion territory. The pressure told on five minutes as...
