All players P4 and above MUST wear a properly fitted mouth guard. They will not be allowed to train or play without it. Mouth guards can be purchased for a reasonable price at the main sports outlets and on-line. Mouth guards can be cut down to fit younger players.
For playing at Cavalry Park or other grass venues, players will require boots with aluminium studs. The club has a selection of second hand boots of various sizes that are available for exchange. Players can use “astro” style boots for training on the 3G pitches at Portobello High School, or can wear their rugby boots. Normal trainers can be used but do not normally provide sufficient grip.
Players do not need to wear Portobello strips for training but should be appropriately clothed for the weather conditions. Unless the weather is very poor, training / matches will normally go ahead, so be prepared for cold, wet and muddy conditions.
Portobello strips will be provided for matches (at no cost to parents).
