Plymouth Albion RFC News


WELCOME PHIL JONES

Plymouth Albion is thrilled to announce the signing of young Welshman Phil Jones. The Fly-half/Full back has signed a one-year deal after stints at Ospreys and Swansea RFC. The Gower native told us all about his Rugby education and the deciding factor behind his decision. “I’ve just finished university and I found myself at a natural crossroad. The opportunity came up to come to Plymouth and be a part of the journey over the next few years which is really exciting for me! It was a tough decision after playing all of my senior Rugby at Swansea RFC and I...

Update Ten from MD Max Venables

Three months of ‘lockdown’ continue to ease with the opening of high street shops this week and a progressive return to social mixing, albeit at a distance of 2 metres. Premiership rugby squads have been called back to training with the season expected to resume in July. Bottom line, our own much-anticipated return to playing rugby at Brickfields is slowly coming ever closer; the ‘New Normal’ we hear about is beginning to dawn. The good news continues, as I am delighted to announce Plymouth Albion and VX-3 have agreed to a new 3-year kit deal. VX-3 is a fresh new...

Update Nine from MD Max Venables

Apologies for being a bit late this week, I am trying my best to ensure we get the news out at the same time but we’ve had an especially busy week, things are beginning to pick up pace as we start to see players return to training (in small, distanced groups), PPE orders arrive and focus turn to the 20/21 season preparation. However, before that, there is the small matter of the end of season awards!!! The Emmys, it is not, neither is it the Brits or BAFTA’s, but to us here at Plymouth Albion, it is as close to...

Higgins Signs for Jersey Reds

Prop Jack Higgins will be leaving Albion after signing a contract with Championship side Jersey Reds. Jack very kindly spoke to us about his decision to leave… “For next season I’ve signed with Jersey Reds in the Championship. I got a message from my agent out of the blue saying they want a chat. I got good positive vibes from them and it seemed like a good opportunity for me. It is one of those things where if you’re set a challenge, rise to it. I don’t want to leave any stone unturned”. On what he has gained from his...

Update Eight from MD Max Venables

Another week of ‘Lockdown’ under our belt and the first signs of Coronavirus easing are beginning to appear. The government are allowing Premiership Football and Horse racing to resume, although events will take place behind closed doors with spectators confined to their armchairs in front of the TV. No mention yet of rugby returning, but that day must surely be getting closer. Ex American president Barack Obama said; “If you’re walking down the right path and you’re willing to keep walking, eventually you’ll make progress.” A sentiment we recognise well here at Brickfields. The work continues as we firmly believe...

Update Seven from MD Max Venables

It would be remiss of me to open this briefing with anything less than another Big ‘Thank You’ to the Albion 2020 Heroes, who donated the magnificent sum of £31,042. In just 28 days 215 people stepped up to the plate supporting our club with their donation to our cause. Rugby is a physical game of high impact contact, collisions and raw power. To the uninitiated, it might appear that genuine animosity and acrimony exist between contesting teams. Nothing, however, is further from the truth. The respect, fellowship and lifelong friendships that grow between opposing players and fans is unique...

Update Six from MD Max Venables

I suspect you will all know by now that Ex Chiefs and Cardiff Blues star, Damian Welch is joining us at Brickfields. We wanted a big name to take the helm of playing issues and they do not come much bigger than 6’6’’ Damian. Big in both stature and character, Damian is a great fit for us at Brickfields. He knows the game, knows the region and is a senior-level coach keen to make his mark at an elite level club.   The face of rugby is evolving at a pace and post coronavirus we will all be faced with...

Damian Welch to be Appointed as Albion Head Coach

Damian Welch to be appointed as Albion Head Coach. The former Cardiff Blue and Exeter Chiefs player has signed a two-year deal with the option of an extension. ‘I’m really looking forward to getting stuck in. From the moment I spoke to Max (Venables) about what the club saw as there way forward I think it made me more desperate to get the job. My interest has been peaked ever since that moment. I’m really looking forward to getting down there and getting stuck in. I’ve heard good things about the fans, Max has explained the whole Crowd Funder initiative...
