Ironsides News


We are delighted to report that Ironsides Rugby was awarded Sports Club of the Year at the Active Wandsworth Awards 2019!
Nominated for second year in a row, the Active Wandsworth panel particularly recognised Ironsides inclusive approach and our charity and community work, both at home: partnering with 3 Pillars in prisons and schools; and abroad: praising our work with Tag Rugby Trust. They also mentioned our continuing growth and success on the pitch from Minis through to Seniors, the achievements of our Ladies teams, the growth of our Girls Youth section, and our ever more ambitious, Guinness World Records winning Minis tours!

The Ironsides delegation celebrate our success!

Active Wandsworth Awards seeks to reward the commitment and achievement of people across the borough in sport and physical activity, with a particular emphasis recognising South Londoners voluntary contributions to sport and community – and the achievements of the borough’s young people. So a huge thank you is due to everyone volunteering for the club week in week out - and everyone pulling on an Ironsides shirt with pride!

Of course this is the second year in a row Ironsides has received a mention – last year, alongside a nomination for the club, our very own Rachel Denning won the Volunteer of the Year Award, while Ironsides old boy and emerging legend Kyle Sinkler triumphed in the Sports Person of the Year category.

All this year's award winners

And this year we were also pleased to see former Ironsides Youth Shayden Walters awarded Junior Sports Person of the Year. Shayden has unfortunately hung up his Ironsides Shirt (for the time being at least) but is a rising star in the world of British Judo and is now training with the new NFL Academy at White Hart Lane – with ambitions of making it to the top level in American Football. We wish him every success and will follow his career(s) with interest.
