Scrum half signs new contract with Plymouth Albion

Top scorer Matt Shepherd has become the fourth player from last season's squad to re-sign at Plymouth Albion.

Shepherd, who joined Albion last summer from the Cornish All Blacks, played in all 30 leagues games last season and finished with 188 points, a haul that included 13 tries.

The 26-year-old, who stands 5’ 9", took up the roles of scrum half, wing and full back.

I’m pleased to sign a new contract and excited about pulling on an Albion shirt again.

A few of us from last season have signed new contracts and I hope we can keep the bulk of the squad together.

With the addition of some new faces we will have the ability to push on from last season. I know some of the other teams have recruited well but my aim is to get Albion promoted back to the Championship.

– Matt Shepherd

Shepherd is also a crucial member of the Cornwall team and on Sunday will be running out at Twickenham against Cheshire in the final of the County Championship.
