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.
