    No, we never say "of the clock." We simply say nine o'clock, etc.

    thank you for your help .
    I hope that is helpful.

    What follows the word "played" is what is played.

    We played football. He played chess.

    PS - Welcome to Using English.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    "o'clock" is the contracted form of "of the clock", only "o'clock is used in modern English.
