Rainey OB RFC held a successful Golf Classic at Moyola Park Golf Club on 16th June.

 

Over 40 fourballs participated in the successful event and and the Hole sponsors were recognised on the large sponsors board on the first tee and which is now on display at Hatrick Park.

 

Once again JC Halliday’s sponsored a car for a hole in one at the Fifth hole.  The ‘Spotters’ Louise Flanigan and Claire Doyle thought they were in for a busy day when Jackie Averill, playing in the second four ball of the day landed his tee shot to within 2 feet of the pin.  However, nobody managed an ace and Jackie was rewarded with the nearest the pin prize.

The ROBRFC Coaching Staff

With the new rugby season already under way, Rainey Old Boys are back in training (Tuesday & Thursday 7:00pm) with good numbers turning out.  U18 and U16 training also gets underway on Wednesday 7th August at 7:30pm.  Everyone welcome, particularly anyone wishing to have a go at rugby.  The club will be fielding four sides this season.

 

Rainey will be meeting three teams in Division 2A that they have never played before and can expect a very interesting, but tough time at this level.  There will be no easy games in this league, which has clubs such as Ballymena, UL.Bohemians, Dolphin and Buccaneers who, not that long ago, were locking horns with the top teams in the country.  With Ballymena and Queen's Univ. the only other Ulster sides in 2A, Rainey face two long trips to both counties Limerick and Tipperary, as well as travelling to Cork, Westmeath and Kildare.  It promises to be a very competitive league, with all teams capable of beating each other.  The Hatrick Park faithful would appear to be in for a treat.

Many thanks to P&L Electrics, Limavady, who sponsored the recent AIL league match against Sundays Well.

In Provincial 1, Rainey II were too strong for strugglers Portadown II, winning 62-14 at Chambers Park to stay in the top three..  Rainey III, who did well in Regional West before Christmas after a bad start, have been placed in the North section for another competition which got under way last week.  Their opponents, Coleraine III, were unable to field, however, so Rainey get the points.  The Thirds also have a McCambley Cup quarter final to  look forward to.

 

Rainey Rhinos continue to compete with the best at underage level.  In the Ulster Carpets League, Rainey U18s beat City of Derry 20-12 at Hatrick Park, while the U16s were 20-8 winners.  Both games were in the North section.

Many thanks to Tobermore, who sponsored the recent AIL league match against Dungannon.
