With a light fixture list on the club scene at the weekend we took the opportunity to drop into Provincial D1 where we covered two matches.
Our first report featured Queen’s University II’s recording a big win against Dungannon II’s and this one was equally emphatic with runaway league leaders Rainey Old Boys defended their unbeaten run this season with a comfortable win against 5th placed Ballyclare.

Despite playing into the teeth of the wind, Ballyclare set off on the front foot keeping Rainey pinned in their own half for the bulk of the first quarter. However, the hosts were unable to break down the visitors defence . . .
