Regional North East 2nd November 2019
Scorers: Suiter(2*Try), Paul(2*Try)



A very experienced Fourth side were back in action after a little break, with three former club captains to help them along.  Visitors Larne III went ahead midway through the first half, but Rainey gradually assumed command for No8 McCrea to create a try for speedy wing Suiter.


Rainey's superior fitness was evident as the game progressed and scrum-half Paul nipped round the narrow side from a ruck to put them in front.  He struck again, finding a gap and selling a neat dummy to extend their lead, with Suiter also grabbing a second try towards the end.  All the conversions were missed, leaving Rainey with a bonus point 20-7 win.

Regional North East 28th September 2019

Ballymoney IV have proved to be a very useful outfit in recent seasons and on Saturday came from behind to beat Rainey OB IV with a penalty in the final quarter at Kilraughts Road.

Regional North 21st September 2019
Scorers: Lee(1*Try), Kidd(1*Try), Bradley(1*Try), Murray(1*Try), McGuckin(4*Conv, 1*Pen)
After a lapse of five years, Rainey are again able to field four sides and they celebrated  their return to action with an encouraging 31-14 victory over Ballymena V in the Regional North League at Hatrick Park.  Captain Gareth Bryson and his cohorts worked hard during the off season to coax a few experienced blasts from the past out of retirement and snap up a host of new recruits who will, no doubt, benefit form playing with them.

While Ballymena had a seasoned outfit, they never performed as a unit as Rainey, on their first outing, gelled surprisingly well, scoring three first half tries to lead 21-0 at the break.
