Worth a Try
ARGYLE supporters kicking their heels until Top-of-the-Table Tuesday's clash with Northampton Town are being invited to get their weekend sporting fix at the Brickfields.
While the Pilgrims are not in action this Saturday, in-form Plymouth Albion play their first home game of 2016 when they entertain Hull Ionians in National League One (3pm).
As a 'thank you' to Argyle and Plymouth Raiders, who supported Albion during difficult times last year, Albion have invited players of the two clubs to watch the game.
In addition, adult season-ticket holders of either club will be able to get into Brickfields for just £5 (ground admission only; all under-16s are free).
Argyle Chief Executive Martyn Starnes said: “With our top-of-the-table game against Northampton coming up on Tuesday at Home Park, the Green Army can prepare for our biggest match of the campaign by taking advantage of Albion’s generosity and getting behind our neighbours.”
Albion, who have won their last five matches, hope to create a special atmosphere this weekend to mark their first home game of 2016 and their first for four weeks.
Any Albion season ticket holders will also be able to bring a friend along with them also for just £5.
“We are really looking forward to our first home game of the New Year, having not played at Brickfields for four weeks,” said Albion’s director of rugby Graham Dawe.
“We hope our own season ticket holders and those of Argyle and Raiders will take up our offer this weekend and try and create a special atmosphere against Hull Ionians.
“We have got supporters who go and watch Plymouth Argyle and Plymouth Raiders and the Green Taverners have helped encourage Argyle supporters to come down to Albion over the last 12 months.
“We don’t often get a chance to invite players from both clubs to come and watch on a Saturday afternoon due to their own fixtures.
“The plan is for players of all three clubs to meet up over some food after the game. It’s a great opportunity for fellow players from different sports to catch-up and share experiences.”
