The U17s and U18s have combined to form two Colts teams this season.  Players born between 1 September 2003 and 31 August 2004 are eligible for the 17s.  We train or play home matches on Sunday mornings at Garrett Green,  We also have light midweek training on Wednesday evenings normally at the club on Burntwood Lane.

We have a squad of 25-30 players, a blend of players who joined in the past couple of seasons and those who joined at the start of mini rugby at the age of 5 or 6.

We warmly welcome all new players.  We fully support the core rugby values of Teamwork, Respect, Discipline and Sportsmanship.  The U17s core desire in particular is that we want all our players to enjoy their rugby experience with us.

There are no fixtures for the Under 18s available at this moment.

We are a successful age group with a focus on player development and fun.

If you want to play good rugby and have fun, give us a try.

The 2020-21 season has begun.  We train at Garratt Green, Burntwood Lane, SW17 0AJ.

We are always looking for more players to join our squad and welcome players of any level of experience.

 

Our culture is open and friendly and we believe parents should enjoy the experience of our squad as well as the boys.

As well as playing league matches, we organise as many friendly games as possible to ensure all boys play as much competitive rugby as they want.

You can join us for training at 10.00 to 12.00 when we are at home (see Fixtures List and More Info) and if after a couple of sessions you like what you see we can take you through the registration process.

At Ironsides U16s we take our rugby seriously. 

The 2020-21 season starts on         and we train at Garratt Green, Burntwood Lane, SW17 0AJ on Sunday mornings between 10am and midday.
 

We're a community club that play hard and fair and we play with passion – to win. But when the game is done, its done, and we're down to the clubhouse after a handshake for a burger, a drink and a laugh.

We run one squad of boys from the local area and our boys represent schools far and wide from Ernest Bevin, Chestnut Grove  and St Cecilia's to Whitgift, Dulwich and St Paul's, to not to mention our international friends down at Lycee Francais!

We always welcome new players, at any time who want to play rugby, whether they've played before or are new to the game to become part of a new family – the Ironsides family.



 

Our coaches are passionate and responsible, they take their duties seriously. We want to play exciting flowing rugby and we want our boys to become better more skilled fitter players and better people!

Ironsides U15: Sunday 8th November - rugby training during the next phase of lockdown looks unlikely, but the RFU will be seeking clarification on what the latest restrictions mean for team sports and we await a full update on Tuesday in the RFU Community Game Update. 
We'll let you know once we have any further updates. If by any slim chance training is still permitted, we will send an availability email mid week.

We are an all-inclusive club and welcome kids of all standards and cater the training to suit all. We have two teams entered into the Surrey League and also arrange other friendly club fixtures both at home and away to ensure that all players get to play in matches over the season.
 
When the weather is bad, there will be occasions where we are not allowed to play to minimize ground damage and cancellations may not be until 10am on the Sunday. If we do know in advance we will put a notice on the website, so please check on Sunday mornings before you head out and/or  via the in-house availability system.

The in-house availability system is used to publish fixtures and coordinate availability through to selection so please lookout for emails from U14.Manager@ironsidesrugby.com with a click through YES or NO to confirm availability which the coaches can then see for selections.

As it is email based, it is key that your child’s details and your contact emails are correct on the site.

Kit is important as the children won’t be allowed to train without mouth-guards and studded rugby boots. Good waterproofs, gloves and a hat when it’s cold and/or wet and some children wear head-guards and body padding however these are not required.
 
We look forward to welcoming you to this great club. If you have any queries or concerns please don’t hesitate to ask one of the coaches or managers.

Welcome to the Ironsides U13s Website Page.  The new season starts on 13th September

Training location - Wandsworth Common

We are an all-inclusive club and welcome boys of all standards and cater the training to suit all. We have festivals and club fixtures both at home and away and we ensure that all players get to a number of these over the season.

The weather will start getting cold and wet, so prepare for muddy Sundays. There will be some cases where we have to cancel training, but this may not be until 10am on the Sunday. If we do know in advance we will put a notice on the website, so please check on Sunday mornings before you head out.

Gumshields and boots compulsory to play!

New joiners:
 please contact U13.manager@ironsidesrugby.com for details how to be put on our waitihng list, due to COVID-19 we are not taking on new players at the present time.

Rubbish: please can all players and parents take any rubbish with them from training and matches - the coaches often have to clear away coffee cups/ empty water bottles/snack wrappers etc

Kit: On sale most Sundays at the clubhouse, cash or cheques only. There is a new shirt on sale for this season, with our new sponsor Rampton Baseley. It is absolutely fine to carry on wearing the old Douglas and Gordon tops, and for teams to play fixtures in a combination of the two styles. If anyone has any outgrown kit they want to give away, please let me know and I can try and find homes for them, I have a few people asking about this.

Volunteers: Are always needed, within the age group and at the club. All the Ironsides coaches, managers, first aiders, referees etc are volunteers and we always need more help! If you would like to get involved please let me know.
