Good luck to the hardy folks making the journey, and lets hope the team bring home a win.

Personally, I reckon this as 50/50

Disappointing to see, again, no pre-match interview with anyone. A missed opportunity to engage the supporters and create interest in the fixture. Can anyone offer an explanation? GOOD LUCK to the squad, a great opportunity for a valuable away win against a good side.

Rumour mill says a significant departure on the media side of things (without replacement). Also one in Catering/Events management. Control of costs is one thing, drift is another...

T'ain't looking pretty on DMP Twitter right now; FT score to follow shortly...



Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

DMP 49 - 22 PARFC @ FT (5-0)

Albion in possession and close to 4T bonus at the whistle, but knocked on and Sir blew on 80... (Sm100)

Oh dear not good, the wheels seem to have fallen off at the moment, somethings need to change, or could be staring relegation in the face. Letís hope things turn around soon

Every supporter at Albion is entitled to an opinion the response from the individual and the language used is unacceptable .

Does this refer to the comment by "Harry'sDad" when the FT result was given? If not - where?

If so, it is direct and critical (and only his opinion), and I sense that "HarrysDad" was rather frustrated at the time, given the result. There are a few twitters bagging Ben Gulliver and suggesting Keiran be asked back. The results have been mixed and the position in tbe table is not what I hoped for or expected, but is that Ben's fault?

The cessation of media releases from the club/Ben on match previews and reports is not helping here.

Update - I have just noticed that there is a match report on the offy site - by Kevin Westlake.

Match report:

plymouthalbion.com

Another "big up" to Kevin W for getting these quality reports done in short order. It's datelined 16 Nov, but not sure it went up on the offy straight away. Obviously Twitter tells an incomplete story, but DMP made it all count early on. OK, grasping at straws, but that LBP would have made a difference table-wise. No getting away from it, though - mid table (?-13th) is a total dogfight. Plus the sick list is is considerable.

Another Moseley game this Sat please, lads...

Hi All,

I wanted to clear the air on this subject. My "Harry's Dad" Twitter account is reserved purely for my personal opinion and is in no way the view of Plymouth Albion RFC. I try by best to be objective, but as a supporter of Plymouth Albion, sometimes the frustration boils over.


I believe the players are doing the best they possibly can. I support Albion 100%, having been involved from a very very young age. I remember being shouted at by Bill Blank back in the day at Beacon Park!!


The "AlbionRFC" twitter account is available for me to post match updates and various other media. Again, I try to be as objective as possible and try not to cause controversy, however, sometimes the comments aimed at the club and individuals require an appropriate response. As mentioned, I try to remain as professional as possible.

From a match report perspective, many would have noticed that I did not attend the DMP or Richmond games, but still managed to produce a match report. This is something I have taken up to ensure we have some form of representation in the local press, as a volunteer. I am not a writer, or sports journalist...Ö.. I am a fan or supporter!!

I use various sources to collate these reports, including match videos, Twitter feeds, conversations with players and management following the game, and information available via the RFU GMS report, which details scorers, cards, kicks and attendance etc etc. This is done on a very short schedule. The match generally finishes at 1640, the report needs to be at The Indy by 1800. When you consider that I am discharging other duties as well, this can sometimes be a very very tight schedule, often I have less than 20 minutes to type, review, edit, review and send.

My love of rugby is due to the childhood I spent at Plymouth Albion with my family many moons ago, and I support the club wholeheartedly, even from afar when I am unavailable.
