Dan Mugford agrees new contract

DAN MUGFORD SIGNS NEW CONTRACT It’s been a sticky couple of seasons at Plymouth Albion for fly half/centre Dan Mugford. The 2017/18 season was marred by injury including rupturing a finger tendon and breaking his arm in the gym, which resulted in surgery. With the all-clear from his surgeon – and after working during the summer to get match fit – Dan came a cropper in the pre-season friendly against Exeter University last autumn when, just 30 seconds into the game, he was taken off with concussion. He struggled with injury throughout the past year, so he’s pleased to sign...

When he first arrived at the club, the Launceston-born player was on the wing and admits he was “a bit wary” about that position. “But moving to centre has worked out better and everyone agrees it suits my playing style,” says Jon, 25. “I’ve had to earn my place and in my first season there were lot of other players about.
