Plymouth Albion Colts

Who are the Colts?

As a club in the heart of Devonport, we feel proud to be a beacon for our community in Plymouth, and we are incredibly pleased to see our youth section expanding.

Our Colts are a team of U18 rugby players who are on the cusp of reaching senior rugby. Brilliant, promising stars come to us from all over Devon to play rugby on the final rung of the ladder before heading to men’s rugby, and the Colts stage is a really crucial part of young players’ progression.

For that reason, we need to find a balance for our young players. Firstly, we want everyone to enjoy playing rugby, and have fun while taking part in the best team sport in the world. But we also want to give our youngsters a challenge and prepare them for taking the leap into senior competition.

Giving Back To Our Community

As a club in the heart of Devonport, we feel proud to be a beacon for our community in Plymouth, and we are incredibly pleased to see our youth section expanding.

As we have re-built our development sides, we have started to see the fruits of the labour of so many who have helped this club become a healthy, thriving Plymouth Albion.

Part of our progress over recent years has been about, not only re-establishing a platform for younger players, but helping our community grow too. We have found rugby, or any sport that encourages socialisation, to be a huge part of childhood and adolescent development.

By meeting new people and getting involved with the club on a social and sporting level, we aim to help set our youngsters up for success in many facets of life going forward.

Playing rugby is just the start – being a Colt at Albion means more. We value personal growth and wellbeing, and this is something we try to impart onto all of our young players.

Training

Our Colts train twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays. They begin at 7.30PM on Monday evenings, and at 6PM on Thursday nights.

Our youngsters typically use the 3G pitch adjacent to the Brickfields running track as their training pitch, and as a Colt, you will also enjoy full access to our Bunker gym facility. The gym is used by both our Under 18s and the first team, strengthening the bond within the club and the collective drive shared by everyone across the board at Plymouth Albion.

We want the lads to be close to the first team when they can be; it enables our senior lads to remember where they came from, while serving as a bright light for the Colts, guiding them towards their ambition of playing men’s rugby at the highest level possible.
