Plymouth Albion sign three new players

Plymouth Albion head coach James Shanahan has continued building his squad for next season by capturing the signatures of three new players.

Albion's back row options will be enhanced by the arrival of 22-year-old Alistair Bone, who has just graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in Sport Management.

The third new signing, 23-year-old Tom Cowan-Dickie, is already well known to Albion fans having been dual registered with Exeter Chiefs for the last two seasons.

Cowan-Dickie has been restricted by injury this season and has made just two league appearances during the current campaign.

Josh is a very lively 9 with lots of pace and power. He impressed me last year in the Junior World Cup playing for Wales.

Ali is a very powerful and dynamic back row player who has the ability to cover the whole of the back row which will gives us versatility.

Tom is a very powerful rugby player and will bring that to our front row next season.

We have lacked strong ball carriers in that department and I feel Tom can bring that to our game.

It shows the strong link we have with Exeter and I'm looking forward to having Tom with us as a full time Albion player.
