Ironsides! Welcome to the build up to the 2015/16 season. We have already had a very promising start to this season as it officially began on July 14th with a strong showing of 6 coaches & 50 players! 

Captaining the Ironsides 1st XV is a massive honour. Having been at the club for 16 years now, I know what it takes to be a true Ironsider and hope to lead this team to even more success. Last years skipper, Colin O'Keeffe, couldn't have set the bar any higher, the club are reining Surrey 1 champions, Surrey Shield champions, London & SE Division champions and National Junior Vase champions. Being vice captain under Colin gave me an insight of what it would be like to lead such a successful team, which is one of the many reasons why I decided to take on the armband.

Having just been promoted into London 3 SW, I'm hopeful the club can consolodate our position within the London Leagues and really show what the Ironsides brand of rugby is all about. The support and enthusiasm we had from within the whole club and the local area was immense and I hope this gets even better this season! 

Heres to the upcoming season!

T The Super 2's play their rugby in the Surrey Championship, the top level of the reserve leagues against some very competitve teams.
After a closely faught campaign last term we're out to go one better and finish on top and we're well placed to do so with some incredibly talented players constantly pushing for 1XV selection and we're always looking to develop players along the way.
We work hard and play hard, playing for each other and then enjoying a well deserved beer after the game - and a few more after that. There's an incredible spirit in the squad where everyone is welcome and encouraged to be the best they can be.

I can't wait for what is going to be an exciting and successful season ahead!
2,3!

T he Ironsides 3rd XV has been dubbed the hardest team in the club in get into. The 3rd XV is a close family of players, where the backbone of the side has been playing together for the last 6 seasons. The team posses a good blend of experience and youth, with many players previously playing 1st and 2nd team rugby for the club. The 3's also provide a new challenge for those progressing through the ranks in the club, from our 4th XV. The 3rd XV play Rugby at RFU level 11 in the Surrey Combination 2 reserve league. View League Table

The 2013/14 season saw the 3rd XV finish as the runner up team in Surrey Combination 2, pushing the league winners all the way to the end of the season. This season 2014/15 sees the 3's in the same league competition, with finishing first our one and only goal. I'm proud to be again leading the Ironsides 3rd XV out in 2014/15, for my 5th year as captain in my 9th season at the club and I'm determined to bring back league sliver wear for the Ironsides!

T The 4th team is the backbone of the club, and one of 6 senior men's sides this coming season. We combine a mixture of talented youth and vastly experienced players looking to enjoy a weekly game of rugby. So whether you are new to the game, a seasoned old pro, or have just moved to London and looking to play some rugby, the 4th team is for you! 

The 4th XV now play Rugby in the Surrey Conference (East) League after 2 successful promotions in the last few seasons, winning the league title as winners of the Surrey Combination League for 2015/16. 

Looking to improve on our achievements from last season, the 4th team will be fully focused on developing players and of course winning another very tough league in 2017/18.
