Plymouth Albion was formed in 1876 by a group of apprentices from the Royal Naval Dockyard in Devonport.
Albion first played at Devonport Park and the players and officials carried the goal posts and flags to the park. There were no facilities so the players had to return home for a bath after the match! Moving onto 2015, Albion have managed to avoid administration but it was too late to prevent relegation after 13 years in English rugby’s second tier.
The 2015/16 season has seen a rebuilt playing squad with the emphasis on young, exciting West Country talent.
