Plymouth Albion 49-10 Cambridge

By Jack Guthrie Plymouth Albion put in a barnstorming performance at Brickfields on Saturday, scoring seven tries past National Division One opponent Cambridge in a nine-try-thriller which ended 49-10 to the hosts. Albion’s head coach James Scaysbrook admired the work of the forwards saying, “It was nice to see some ball tries and a couple of scrum pens, they certainly worked hard in the week, we worked hard on the mauls and it’s paid dividends today. It was very good to see.” With this win moving Albion two places up the table, Scaysbrook wants the team focusing on their performance...

BONUS POINT LOSS FOR ALBION AT SALE

By Kevin Westlake Plymouth Albion has had something of a resurgence in recent weeks, with four wins from four in 2020 so far, but a tough trip to Sale was one match too far for the Plymouth men. Head Coach James Scaysbrook made a number of changes to his side, including the return of winger Josh Skelcey in favour of injured Sam Morley and Pete Ingoldsby replacing skipper George Mills in the back row. They also welcomed the return of front row pairing Dan Pullinger and James Kenny to the bench after long term injuries. Albion’s weekend did not start...

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...

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.

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...
