Hot on the heels of the fixture announcement for the 21/22 season, Plymouth Albion is excited to welcome back fans on the 10th of July for the first game of rugby in well over a year. After what has been the longest of breaks, we are delighted to open the gates for a grand charity match that sees a star-studded Welsh Charity Veterans take on an Armed Forces XV For this inaugural game, the two teams will be competing for the ‘Thatchers Cup’ in what is planned to become a recurring summer charity fixture to complement the Medics challenge in November. Featuring a team that boasts well over 100 international caps of experience, the Welsh team boast the headline name of Shane Wiliams in their squad and have a rich heritage in playing exciting rugby. Standing in their way, the Armed Forces team has been selected by former Albion great Gaz Evans and features a host of former and current Albion stars in their rank. Adding to the spectacle, we are proud to have a halftime display from the Plymouth Raiders Cheerleading team who, themselves, have been missing crowds too! Early bird tickets are available now at £5 with grandstand tickets at £10 – with this special discounted price we are expecting a big day at the Brickfields so get booked in early (80% of all ticket revenue will pass directly to the charities) Additionally, the club is proud to announce our link with one of the regions most celebrated chefs, Michelin Bib Gourmand recipient Ben Palmer, who will be curating the matchday menu for hospitality guests – limited hospitality is still available at £350 +Vat for tables of 10 contact chris@plymouthalbion for further details.
