Ironsides News


Battersea Ironsides have been chosen as finalists in the inaugural Gallagher Premiership Rugby Club of the Season 2019/20.  The competition celebrates and rewards local grassroots clubs that are making a significant contribution to their local community, on and off-the-pitch.

We need your votes to show that our #OneClub – comprising over 1200 playing members across our Senior Mens and Ladies, Vets, Colts teams and Youth and Minis sections - deserve to win this incredible accolade!

We've been selected for the club’s strong ethos of fostering inclusivity and community in South West London. Gallagher were particularly impressed by how Ironsides has:
- put in place financial support to disadvantaged young people who otherwise might not be able to afford to play rugby;
- built our hugely successful Battersea Ironsides Ladies squad - with more than 70 members - less than four years after its inception;
- run a unique rugby-based intervention programme with prisons and young offenders’ institutes in partnership with 3 Pillars Project - which sees players get involved in coaching sessions at Wormwood Scrubs.
The winner will receive an enhanced Gilbert training kit bundle worth up to £2,000 and 100 tickets to the Gallagher Premiership Final.

The overall winner will be chosen by public vote, so please click here to vote for Ironsides!  

Voting closes on Sunday 13th September
