U9 (2010)

Hi All,

This Sunday 21st October we have our first home metro match of the season where we will be playing both Seapoint & St Brigid’s Rugby Clubs, so can you please aim to be in the club for 10.00am so that we can get our squad warmed up & split into teams, the matches will kick-off at 10.15am sharp.

Please make sure that your child is wearing a gum shield, boots & a Clontarf jersey (& no worries if they don’t have a jersey).  A strict NO GUM SHIELD NO PLAY rule applies.

As we are hosting and our opponents are travelling could I ask all our parents to bring along some munchies and nibbles so that we can have a post-match reception in the hall afterwards.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please see below the our Metro Match schedule for the coming months:






Seapoint & St Brigid’s



Greystones & Tallaght


St Mary’s




Clontarf & Tallaght

New players are very welcome.

If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.

The Club has a strict policy on the types of footwear that can be worn on the all-weather pitch. These apply to players and coaches, and are set out below.

Please ensure that the correct footwear is used and that the guidelines for the all weather pitch are followed (see below).

  • The permitted footwear for the all-weather pitch and training area is boots with moulded rubber studs or rubber / steel screw-in studs (see examples below)
Moulded Studs Steel Plastic Studs
  • All persons entering the pitch enclosure must wear appropriate footwear for safety and to avoid damaging the synthetic grass.
  • Blade boots, runners and boots with worn studs are all forbidden as they will damage the synthetic grass. (see examples below)
        • Blade bootsAstro
