Albion's Cam Ensures Memorable Evening

Written by
There was a wonderful party atmosphere for the 8th Junior & Colts Presentation Evening held once again at the Argaum Clubhouse. With the newly formed Under 13s joining the events for the first time, it was a night to celebrate the individual and team successes on and off the field. Plymouth Albion's Cameron Mitchell, who has recently been selected for the England Counties Squad, was Guest Of Honour and assisted in the presentation of the awards, whilst club Chairman Chris Sillitoe was also another honoured Guest and on hand to witness events. Mark Albiston's Under 13s, who have built a team from scratch in the last season, kicked off the awards. Their awards went as follows: Player's Player Tom Bradshaw, Most Improved Jack Jones and Coaches Award Connor Archer. The Under 16s, who have shown magnificent spirit to complete the season with a full team were up next with Kal Bloomfield picking up Player's Player, Owen Belli Coaches Award and Phil Kew Most Improved. Mark Turner & Lewis Harmer, both leaving the club after a numner of years, received momentoes in recognition of their time spent with the club. The Colts, some of whom have been with the club since Under 11s and many of whom are looking to move into the seniors next season, completed the evening with Dan Smith taking Players Player, Jake Turfrey Coaches Award and Dan Sargent Most Improved. All players present received a Participation Trophy and there were also presentations made to a number of volunteers who have helped the club throughout the season. An excellent buffet was provided by the mothers and The Tigers are also very grateful to Paul, Amber, Claire and the barstaff who have helped make the season go smoothly off the field.(Pictures: RB, Kal Bloomfield)

England Stars Sign For Argaum

Written by
Signed PhotoA last-minute decision by two Plymouth rugby fans to attend last year's World Cup final has resulted in a city side's youth set-up looking to land a windfall. For a photograph, signed by members of England's star-studded World Cup winning squad, one of which is inspirational skipper Martin Johnson, will be auctioned with the proceeds going to the youngsters of Plymouth club Plymouth Argaum.
The picture captures the by-now world famous kicking stance of England hero Jonny Wilkinson taking a penalty with his captain marvel looking on in the background.
The other star names in the picture are Kyron Bracken, Richard Hill, Danny Grewcock and Jason Leonard.
It has been donated by Plymouth businessmen Nigel Arscott and David Phillips of The Kitchen Company, who are sponsors of the Bickleigh Down outfit, whose decision to jet to Sydney for the final, led to a chance meeting with the England players back in England.
Arscott explained: "We met up with an old school friend, David Chasemore, who is arranging Mike Catt's testimonial this year. "On our arrival we were invited to dinner for Catty's testimonial launch and found ourselves on a table next to the England players.
"They were kind enough to sign a few items to raise money for charity, including this photograph which will go to help Argaum's youth squad. "One photo has already raised £1,000 for a charity in Bristol," he added.
Anyone interested in bidding for this sporting artefact can contact either Richard Belli, on 07711441599, or via the website www.argaum.org.uk. Bids must be received by Friday, February 13.

Sweet Chariot Tour @ Plymouth Albion

Written by

Argaum Players with the Rugby World Cup
Thousands of rugby fans didn't waste the chance to catch the Webb Ellis Trophy at a sun-kissed Brickfields yesterday. An almost endless flow of fans queued patiently to have their picture taken with the World Cup, England won so famously in Australia in November (pictured left with players from Plymouth Argaum Tigers).

Plymouth Albion's doors opened bright and early at 9am for the day which was part of the RFU's Sweet Chariot Tour - and hordes were already eager to get their personalised picture with the famous trophy, housed in glass for the occasion.

"I think it's been an awesome day," said Albion star Dan Ward-Smith, who took part in a special training session arranged for the crowds. "Everyone's buzzing and it's brilliant to see so many people down here interested in rugby. It's a good idea for the RFU to have the tour. It does generate interest and it's good for the game that more people are interested in it."

An U11s tournament also took centre stage, while bouncy castles and face-painting proved ever-popular in what was always firmly a family day. "The sun came out and it was nice," added Ward-Smith. "I'd never seen the trophy before, so it was a unique experience, and something you might not get the chance to see again."

At £6 a shot, it wasn't cheap to get your picture taken alongside the great trophy if you did not have your own camera, but the price or the queues didn't put anybody off. "It's the most important cup in rugby and it will be a real pleasure to see it," added Ward-Smith.

Other exclusive memoribilia on display included the Zurich Premiership trophy and a ball used during England's immortal triumph against Australia in the World Cup final. The fact that people arrived in their droves to see all that only reiterates how the English game continues to enjoy a feel-good factor. The U11s tournament was similarly well supported and not simply a sideshow to the main attraction. There was also a ladies' 10-a-side game and an adult tag competition. Devonport Services and Kingsbridge contested the under-11 final after teams from Plymstock, Plymouth Argaum , Tavistock and Ivybridge had also relished their moment in the sun.

Devonport finally won 4-3 on drop-goals after normal and extra-time finished 5-5. But even runners-up Kingsbridge were all smiles soon afterwards, collecting their medals from the Lord Mayor of Plymouth Coun Peter Whitfield, also in attendance. And that, surely, was what yesterday was all about - the future and the hope it brings.
