PLYMOUTH Albion have suspended three players following an incident that is being investigated by the police.
In a brief statement the Championship club said: “The board of Plymouth Albion have been made aware of an alleged incident involving three players of the Plymouth Albion team. The board has taken the decision to suspend the players concerned pending the outcome of a police investigation.”
The club added that they would not be making any further comment at this time.
It is believed the incident happen in the hours following Albion’s defeat at the hands of the Cornish Pirates on Sunday.
Two days after that loss in Cornwall, head coach James Shanahan left the club after being ‘released’ early from his contract.
Albion are without a match this weekend. They next play on April 11 when they entertain promotion-hopefuls Bristol at Brickfields. If Albion don’t win that game and relegation rivals Moseley beat Bedford at Goldington Road then Plymouth’s 13-year stay in English rugby’s second tier will come to an end.
