Despite a somewhat slow start to this game Renmore fought back to stay at the summit of Division 1 after a 2-1 win against Craughwell United. A Dave McDonagh double save from the penalty spot had a massive say in how this match went as the visitors went in ahead at the break with only a single goal advantage. A Harry Rogers equalizer brought parity early in the second half and a winner from inspired sub Rory Glynn brought Renmore maximum points for the home side.
Be in no doubt this game was a fantastic advertisement for tenacity and grit as Renmore U21's 'never say die' attitude paid dividends at the final whistle.
Despite being 3-1 down it ended up U21's Knocknacarra 3 - 3 Renmore at full time with 2 goals from Anoch Abiodun and 1 goal from Chris Tshimanga.
A massive well done to Renmore players Liam Kelly, Paddy McCarroll, Finn O' Reilly & Oisin Gorham on representing Renmore AFC at the Galway Football Association U12 Assessments, from which the GFA U12 squad is to be selected. All of these players represented their club admirably well and Renmore would like to wish them all the best of luck.
In a 1st half dominated by Blues the game remained 0-0 at the break. In the 2nd half Renmore 'A' came out strong and Paddy McKernon hit a 25 yard thunderbolt with the outside of his right foot into the top corner to make it 1-0. Renmore then made a couple of changes to the team and went 2-0, Paddy Gannon with a bullet header from a corner.
The Blues struck back with 20 mins to go with a good finish at the back post. Andrin Kraja made it 3 - 1 with 10 mins to go when he went through 1v1 and finished well.
Great result for Renmore sending us top of the table.
What a game as Renmore stormed back from being two nil down to beat a good Moyne Villa side who had benefitted from defensive lapses from the home side.
A final 12 minutes of sheer tenacity and a never say die attitude saw a Scott Rigney brace and an Ollie Sheppard winner see Renmore collect all 3 points when it seemed unlikely.
Lots of games to get us up and out today and tomorrow with the Academy also continuing today.

Other prelim matches for this weekend are
Galway Bohemians v Colga,
West Utd v St Bernards
Galway Hibernians v Dynamo Blues
Watching Renmore B this season isn't going to be a boring affair if this match is anything to go by. A story of goals galore in the GFA Division 2 against a tough Oughterard team with some 'humdingers' that will surely be remembered for a long time to come.
This result saw Renmore battle back from conceding their first goal of the season in the first minute to producing a fully committed performance that will hopefully claim them many more points this season. With goals from Rob Mangan (x2), Kieron McGinty (x2) and a corker from debutant Alex O'Loughlin Renmore B's start the season with all 3 point's.

Renmore B finished 3rd overall for the season in the Galway Western Hygiene Supplies Division 3.
In an enthralling game of football with plenty of goals it ended Renmore B 5-2 Colga B. Kyle O'Malley opened the scoring with Ollie Sheppard adding a second. With an Aaron McGinty brace and Shane McHugh goal Renmore finished the season in style.
After the game Rory McNulty was presented with his new top on behalf of the rest of the group.
Referee "Mikey Walsh" donated his match fee to Rory which was an incredible gesture and should be commended.
Thank You to All for an enjoyable season and we look forward to the next fast approaching one.
Our latest results for our Euro's Fundraiser are now available online. Looks like its going to be a tight finish for those at the top. Renmore statisticians haven't been immobile in the last few weeks with sterling work being done as they make shaw they bring you the correct results. We wont be throwing any stones at how England got to the final as we wait to see who at Renmore & beyond will mount a serious challenge for the top prize that will buy you more than a bag of rice!
Great meret should be given to all of those who joined our fundraiser competition. Our early league leaders certainly didn't set a walker pace. The team in white versus the Azzurri promises to be a great spectacle and hopefully give one or two of our league leaders a few exciting moments, hopefully no one will trippier up!!!
(sorry for that last one).
A great last day for our academy for this season. The Renmore AFC academy has consistently gained popularity and local kids have been joining with great enthusiasm.

This is to tie in with our rich heritage and tradition with our original club team colours. Club committee member Tom Hurley released a statement late last night which read "The club is always looking for ways to celebrate our foundation in 1973 and to promote and honour the club's original formation and what better way than to celebrate our founding with the original kit colours and to wear them with pride as we head towards our year of formation in 2023. This tasteful design, we would hope, will give rise to a few shirt orders also from our current club kit supplier." Please contact Tom for further information.

Renmore Association Football Club was first established in 1973 with the guiding hand of Club founders Bernard Shapiro and Joe Keating. Predominantly a Rugby & Rowing man it was Bernard's sons interest in sports that led him to get involved and proceed to help form the club as we know it today. The crest comprises of a swooping eagle with its wings out stretched, landing and gripping its 'prey' the soccer ball with it's talons. The eagle is featured on a white heraldic beveled shield background with thin black stripes, with the Clubs name emblazoned above. The eagle on the Renmore AFC crest was chosen as an emblem that denoted power as well as agility and speed.

Renmore U16's were in Connacht Cup Final action Sunday as they faced their local rivals Mervue United at Eamonn Deacy Park.
With the score still 0-0 at half time it was Conor Cooke who was the busier keeper but he was in good form keeping out a very quick Mervue front line for the first 40 minutes. It was disappointing to lose a goal so quickly after the restart and this set to tone for the second half as it ended 6-0 to Mervue. A learning experience for a young side who will be looking forward to the new season ahead.

GFA Reserve League
Colga 1-2 Renmore
Renmore went top of the Reserve league after a good away win against Colga. Shane McHugh opened the scoring midway through the first half only for Colga to reply quickly aided by a defensive lapse by Renmore. But before the half was out a volley from Stuart Donoghue saw the points go to the visitors as it remained that way with no more goals in the remainder of the game as Renmore did have chances for a more emphatic three points.
A remarkable 6-3 scoreline saw Renmore U14's win away to Knocknacarra FC in Cappagh Park on Saturday. With Daniel Ofili, Lemar Luciano & Ailill Connolly all grabbing doubles against a lively home side Renmore will have relished this win to move them up the table.
Some other standout results from last week's Connacht Cup Underage games also include a satisfying win in the U16 Connacht FAI Cup where it ended Boyle Celtic 2 V 6 Renmore and in the U18 Connacht FAI Cup away it finished Ballaghdereen 1-3 Renmore.
A couple of important games to tell you about before the Christmas break as the First Team will play their final game of 2019 at home to Tuam Celtic this coming Saturday 14th December at 2pm with the chance to move top of Division 1 and the Reserves will have a home tie against title rivals Macdara on December 21st with a 2pm kick off also.
Western Hygiene Division 1
Renmore 2-0 Mervue B
A gutsy win from Renmore that took guile and strength as the Renmore back line came into their own in this win as the home side brought the game to their local rivals in the first half. With a MoM performance from Cathal Walsh who was excellent throughout it still was a nervy encounter between the two sides as both missed penalties on the day and it took until the second half for the breakthrough to come from a fantastic header from Rory Glynn, continuing his rich vein of form and with Shane Trout finishing the game off with a wonderful goal Renmore deservedly move to second in the table.
Reserve League Result:
Renmore 2-1 West Utd
A well deserved win from a performance that showed grit as well as some excellent team play as Renmore Reserves go second in their respective league with this win.
Despite going behind in the first half some excellent defending kept them in the game until the latter 20 minutes of the match when substitute Daniel Corbett scored with a marvelous header after excellent work from Shane McHugh and with a Man of the Match performance from Kieron McGinty it was only fitting that it was he who fired home the winner with a long range effort that cannoned in off the post to put the game to bed and win the three points.
Two home games in different Cup competitions and two different results on Sunday.
In the noon kick off it ended with Renmore U16's progressing to the next round of the Connacht FAI Cup U16 as they ran out winners over Cregmore/Claregalway FC on a scoreline of 3 goals to 2. A game that ebbed and flowed from the kick off, a real credit to both sides as both fought tooth and nail to win this.
In the FAI Youth Cup it ended in the visitors Colga winning 1-0 in a very tight game that could have gone either way.
Western Hygiene Division 1
Knocknacarra 1-3 Renmore AFC
Renmore made it 2 wins in a row and moved up to 4th in the league with a solid performance against a young and excellent Knocknacarra side in Cappagh on Sunday morning. Renmore went 1 nil down early on but grew into the game and goals from Paddy McKernon and Cian Gallagher (2) sealed a 3-1 win. Renmore were boosted by the return of club legend Paul Sinnott and are hoping to kick on against rivals Mervue B this Saturday in Renmore at 2pm.
All support is appreciated for what is sure to be a cracking game!
Division 1 Galway League.
Renmore 3-1 West Coast Utd
After going behind early in the 2nd half Renmore battled back with a resolute win against a determined and tough to breakdown West Coast Utd. With the game finely poised scoreless at half time it was the visitors who opened the scoring but with Eoin O'Boyle in supreme form ably assisted by Flo Jouffe Gerrard they gained parity shortly afterwards. With a superb brace from substitute Shane Trout, who firmly put his recent injury travails to one side the game was over with the visitors also being reduced to ten men. A tough but deserved win that Renmore were made hard to work for.
Despite a spirited second half performance from the Tuam side Renmore deservedly came out on top as they bounced back from recent results to claim their spot in the Third round of the cup on a scoreline of Dynamo Blues 2-4 Renmore.
In other games some brilliant results, in the FAI Cup on Saturday U17's Renmore played a superb tactical game as they scored four in their match against a strong fancied Westport United side and today on Monday a local derby ended with all the points going to neighbours from over the road as it ended Mervue 0-1 Renmore in the Galway FA U18 Premier League.
