RENMORE 2-1 CORRIB CELTIC
Renmore picked up 3 valuable points at home to a dogged Corrib Celtic side. Renmore started very well and went 1 nil up after a super run by Sammy Omokua who played a perfect pass into the path of Luke Byrnes who guided the ball past the keeper with a beautiful finish. Corrib equalized in the 2nd half and with 5 minutes to go Sammy was taken down in the box and Captain Keith Fitzgerald buried the penalty to win the game.
Next up is a home tie with Athenry next Sunday at 11am.

Renmore AFC 4 - 1 Knocknacarra
Excellent performance and skills from the U12 girls as they locked horns with Knocknacarra at the weekend. Emily Kelly grabbed a couple of goals with Alice Delaney & Abby Lohan chipping in with a goal apiece. This was a fantastic team effort with the side really gelling well on the day.

Be in no doubt this was a great match and a really valuable point against a top side, it ended 4-4 in atrocious conditions. Being 1-0 down it was a superb effort from Paddy McKernonthat brought parity and it was further goals from Rob Mangan and Nathan Healey that had Renmore 3-1 up at half time. After the restart Renmore scored a penalty with the impressive Sammy Omokua and it got better for the home side as Oranmore were reduced to 10 men with half hour to go. Oranmore, however are not contenders for league glory this year for no reason and came back strongly from this set back with 3 goals to level the scores. Renmore were themselves reduced to 10 men following another red card of their own this time. A great advert for football in our league with goals, drama and spectacle despite the weather. Shout out to our 1st team main sponsors this year Crowes Bar Bohermore, O'Reilly's bar Salthill and An Pucan. Local derby v Mervue Utd next Saturday at 3pm. All support greatly appreciated.
All at Renmore AFC football club are very proud of Liam O'Donnell representing our club and Galway U12 Boys last night in Eamon Deacy Park. Well done to you Liam.
A massive shout out for this annual get together at the weekend, The Maree Oranmore FC Invitational. Another year that saw lots of underage teams from across the footballing community come together for the love of association football. Although the weather may have been wet and miserable the girls and boys involved from Renmore AFC certainly were not and had a great time!

Renmore U12 girls had a good day over the weekend as they won 6 - 0 versus Kiltullagh FC. Abby Lohan received the match ball with a wonderful hat trick. Scoring for Renmore were Maeve Griffin (1), Alice Delaney (1), Emily Kelly (1) and Abby Lohan (3).
U12 girls are sponsored by Mr Waffle
Renmore AFC 6 v 0 Moyne Villa
Still unbeaten at home this season and with Renmore captain Mike McGrath showing his goalie skills by stepping into the breach at the last minute this match could have gone pear shaped! However, a first clean sheet of the season at the weekend is testament to his performance and to the performance of his defence who were resolute all game. Hugo Lynagh scored a hat trick and Nathan Kenny grabbed a brace with Danny Wilson getting his 5th goal in 6 games. A marvellous team performance from all of the players involved. Well Done to all of our players and supporters on the day.
Renmore U13 Div. 5 lads were involved in a fantastic game of football recently as they hosted Maree-Oranmore. Winning 5-3 in a game that saw plenty of goal chances from both sides. Liam O’Donnell, Leon Clairon-Hardy x2, Brendan Day & Senan O’Neill all got on the scoresheet as Cillian King played a massive part in goal for Renmore to help "The Blues" to victory. Great football from both sides and a fantastic advert for underage soccerin Galway.

Two quick fire wins have helped Renmore Senior B to move up the Division 1 table as they beat Athenry B away at the weekend. Previously beating Cois Fharraige 2-0 at home the week before it looks like the team is clicking into gear after a slow start to the season.
Good luck in their next fixture against Moyne Villa on 4th November with a 7.45pm kick off away from home. Renmore will be looking to bounce back after their opening day loss to their upcoming hosts.
Two excellent results from the weekend as Renmore AFC U12 Girls won 5-1 against Athenry B. Renmore Goals at home from Alice Delaney 2, Emily Kelly 2 & Abby Lohan 1 gave an encouraging victory for the girls.
U12 Boys Merlin Woods v Renmore AFC finished on a scoreline of 5-2 to the visitors. Renmore AFC U12 navy team gave an exciting come back performance for all to see as they surged back from being 2-0 down at half time. Goal keeper Ronan had a notable performance between the sticks as he performed heroics to keep Merlin from adding to the two goals scored.
Renmore stormed back playing some inspired football as Ben and Anton both scored two each and Dylan scored 1. The team can be proud of their teamwork on the pitch and show a real camaraderie off and on it. Well Done to both sides on a terrific game of football.

U14 Boys had a super win in Division 3 on Saturday the 15th October at home by beating Corrib Rangers 3-1. Still remaining unbeaten at home is a good habit to keep and despite really challenging conditions they continue to put in spirited performances to make for an interesting season ahead. Leon Cussen scored another goal to take his tally to 4 from 4 games with a scorcher of a free kick to open the scoring. With sub Alex Iwasaki scoring the second after a Rangers equaliser Renmore took the game to their visitors from then on. Danny Wilson made it 3 - 1 to keep his scoring streak going as Renmore worked as a team to see the game out. Shout out to the combatitive Josh O'Reilly a real master class in winning the ball in midfield. Excellent overall team performance that will stand this side in good stead in future games.
With our Seniors facing an important away game to Salthill Devon this Friday in the Irish Cup (KO is 8pm) a quick report on how some of our underage sides did this weekend.
U13's B team sponsored by 'The Full Duck Cafe' won 4-1 versus Athenry on Saturday at home. Despite Renmore missing a penalty to open the scoring it was Senan O'Neil who scored late in the first half to get the show on the road. Leon Clairon-Hardy (x2) , Nathan Fondja added more goals to settle a highly competitive match enjoyed by all those watching. A special mention to goalie Cillian King an oustanding performance.
Our Mr Waffle sponsored side U13 'A' who play in Division 1 came out on the wrong side of a 2-1 result against visitors Colemanstown Utd also on Saturday morning. Going into an early 2-0 lead Renmore had to work hard to get back into the game but despite pulling one back in the last quarter of the game it wasn't to be and Colemanstown came away with the points.

FAI Junior Cup
(After extra time)
Renmore are through to the 2nd round of the Irish Cup after a thrilling comeback away to Maree/Oranmore on Saturday. 2-0 down with 15 minutes to go Renmore pulled one back when pressure from Sammy Omokua caused one of the Oranmore defenders to send a ball back to the keeper which ended up straight in the back of the net.
Renmore pushed hard to get the equaliser and with the last kick of the game it came through makeshift centre forward Owen Folan. Extra time loomed and it was Sammy Omokua who clinched the winner after a fine pass from Goalkeeper Dave McDonagh to send the Renmore bench wild.
Travelling support was greatly appreciated and next up is a tough away trip Sunday at 11am away to St Bernards in Abbeyknockmoy.
22 women participated in their Player Development Plan 2 (PDP2) as part of the Women’s Coach Education Programme in 2022 in Galway at Eamonn Deacy Park. In the previous 8 months the women have completed their PDP1 + PDP2, Workshop with Niamh Fahey, Delivered weekly session plans & Women’s Coaching Group engagement.
Renmore AFC u12 girls were the lucky team selected to be put through their paces and were fantastic participant’s. Great day for the coaches and children with the The Galway Football Association allowing the excellent Eamonn Deacy Park to be used.
The PDP2 course allows Coaches to learn about the Player Development Plan and the development of players aged between 9-12 years. Coaches develop through discussion, observation, identifying, listening, questioning, recording and feedback. Coaches also plan, organise, implement and analyse their own coaching sessions.
With the football season well and truly back its a whole host of games we have scheduled for this Saturday.
An historic day on Sunday 18th September at home for Renmore AFC as we fielded our first female team in 20 years. Female sport has seen a huge surge in numbers of girls & woman taking up soccer over the past few years and Renmore were proud as a club to see the U12's representing us on the grass!
All square at half time at 1-1, Merlin Woods went ahead early in the second half and Renmore girls pushed all the way to get back on level terms but Woods scored a third to see out the game.
Good support from the sidelines is a sign of good things to come from the girls at this age level.
Good Luck to Marcella, Michelle and Barbara the management team with this talented group of girls.
Going one up nil up then conceding three in succession would sap the energy and confidence of most teams, but not this side. Leon Cussen gave Renmore the lead with a good finish but still went in 3-1 down at the half time change around.
Whatever was said at half time may be a closely guarded secret but what a change as Leon grabbed his second to add impetus to the home side. And with Daniel Wilson in imperious form scoring for fun everybody upped their game and the overall performance must have provided those watching great entertainment and encouragement for the season ahead.
Well done to this team and to all of our supporters and mentors on the day who helped this team to victory.
U12 Red team won their Connacht Cup Round 1 game against Moyne Villa Villa on penalties. A great advert for underage football as Liam O' Donnell scored in first half of extra time before Moyne Villa equalised to send the game to penalties which Renmore came out on top.
U12 Blue team won 2-1 as they beat Cregmore/Claregalway in their U12 Boys Navy league game. Ben Clifford & Darragh Healy scored as the Renmore back line held firm and Renmore were very unlucky not to add to their goal tally.
Connacht Cup 1st Round
Renmore AFC U16 were up against Manulla from Mayo in the first round of the Connacht cup in Renmore on Sunday 18th September. Renmore scored from a Charlie Evans header. Luke O'Cualin added another before 20 minutes with Evan Healy adding another two to make it 4-0 at half time.
With further early goals from Daragh Finnerty and Juan Newell to put Renmore 6-0 up Ronan Barrett scored two more with another from Thomas McDonagh to finish the match off as Renmore progressed.
Full Duck Cafe sponsored U13's had a good start to their new season with a draw against St Bernards. Excellent footballing conditions saw both sides looking for the three points from the get go. St Bernards scored first from a header and Paddy McCarroll was having an inspired game in goal for Renmore, to keep St Bernards to a solitary goal.
Eanna Daly got Renmore back into the game with a volley after a good combo move from Liam Kelly and Oisin Gorham. This boosted Renmore as they went looking for the winner. And they thought they had won it late on when a Finn O'Reilly effort was ruled offside.
A fantastic game of football for both sides who gave their all.
A special mention must also go to Joe Considine for St Bernards who was injured during the match. Renmore players and coaches wish Joe all the best in his recovery and look forward to facing him in their next fixture together.
What a difference a week makes! From having a tough opening away fixture against Athenry in their first game of the season, Renmore 'A' had an historic 2-1 win against Galway Premier holders Salthill Devon. Well Done lads fantastic victory.
Renmore 'B' play Corofin away Saturday 11th September at 11am. Good Luck lads.

A fantastic day out for all teams that participated in the The Maree Oranmore FC Invitational Finals Day. A host of teams enjoyed the good weather and enthusiasm from their hosts. The event saw our Academy girls and boys in action throughout the day and they certainly showed some skills and had fun at the same time.

A massive shout out to Tournament Director Ross Melville and St Columbas Credit Union.

A win for our boys at home this Saturday guarantees promotion to the Premier Division next season.
The boys need all our support this weekend! The lads would like to send their appreciation to their main team sponsor for the season An Pucan.
They are looking forward to celebrating the season after the final whistle on Saturday.
It's been a mystery that has stood for many years now. Just who is that mystery cat Terry the Tiger?
Many have thought that Galway United legend Ronan Coleman was double jobbing. Then there was the theory that maybe former United managers Sean Connor & Jeff Kenna were job sharing after their managerial tenures came to an end. And who knows where Nick Leeson is these days!??
All we know for sure is that a very svelte looking and welcoming Terry the Tiger was out and about with Renmore FC youngsters in Eamonn Deacy Park recently.
With Galway United flying high in Division 1 and playing highly entertaining football then why not come on down to Eamonn Deacy Park and support the 'Tribesmen' and say hello to Terry.
Whoever he may be!
Renmore 'B' 3-0 Oughterard FC
Renmore will play high flying NUIG in the Joe Ryan Cup Final after tonight's results.
Renmore raced into an early lead away from home at Oughterard's 'New Village' ground and extended it to shoot themselves ahead 3-0 within the early stages of the first half.
In fairness to them Oughterard rallied to stem further Renmore attacks with some resolute defending at times, but Renmore were just too strong for their hosts on the day and could have added more.
The date of the final is provisionally booked for 30th May @7pm in Eamonn Deacy Park. Galway.
Renmore AFC 2 - 0 Cois Fharraige. Renmore AFC took a step closer to Premier Division football next season with a hard fought victory over a dogged Cois Fharraige side.
It took Renmore 80 mins to break the away side down when super sub Rory Glynn came off the bench to meet a Luke Byrne cross and send the home side into the lead. Soon after a fine finish from Sammy Omokua, after a through ball from Harry Rogers, sealed all 3 points.
It was midfielder Odhran Monaghan's last game of the season as he is jetting off to the States for a year. Odhran has been one of the standout players this year and we would all like to wish him the very best and we hope to see him back next year.
Everyone at the club would also like to wish Cian Gallagher a speedy recovery after his knee surgery last week and also to Shane Trill who suffered a nasty looking injury during the game.
Next up for Renmore is a Michael Byrne Cup Quarter Final next Tuesday 26th at 7:30pm vs Oranmore in Maree Astro. All support greatly appreciated!

Often in sport it's the win that is all important to both sides but this game showed that respect and tough tackling can go hand in hand. A sad day for the club who had heard that Renmore player Rory McNulty had passed away the day before.
This game was preceded by a moment of reflection from both sets of players and a long round of applause that was heartfelt by all the players and spectators there.
The game saw a Kinvara side snatch the lead after Renmore had the earlier better play. But it wasn't long however before Renmore were level and then went 3-1 up later on in the game.
The home side spurned a number of chances in the second half to make the scoreline more emphatic than the 3-1 win.
Scorers for Renmore were Kieran McGinty, Stuart Donohue and Ollie Sheppard.
All in Renmore AFC are heartbroken this morning to hear of the passing of Rory McNulty. Rory played with Renmore AFC since 2016 and was a part of the squad to be promoted to the Premier League.
In recent times he was a part of the Junior B squad and he was always a great addition on and off the field. He will be greatly missed.
There will be a minute's silence held tomorrow at the Junior B game at home in Renmore against Kinvara Utd at 1:30pm as a mark of respect.
It truly is a very sad day in Renmore AFC.
May he Rest In Peace.

Renmore were the 'ballboys' at Galway United F.C. vs Cobh Ramblers FC on Friday 1st of April in Galway.
We must have brought them luck as United ran out 1-0 winners against Cobh Ramblers in the first division clash at Eamonn Deacy Park.
A Killian Brouder strike in the 67th minute won the match. With United having the better of the play the pressure finally paid off and despite a late surge from Cobh Ramblers, Galway United went on to victory, getting their second clean sheet of the season.
United's next home match is against Wexford on Saturday 9th April with a scheduled 5pm kick off. Tickets available here -

Another final to look forward to for a Renmore underage side as our U14's ran out comfortable winners with a 5-1 win over Tuam Celtic at the weekend in their Division 3 - U14 Cup Semi final.
It was Renmore who took the game to their visitors as goals from Matthew Hosty, Sam Newman, Sam Ojo, Barry Fennel, Michael McGrath and a fantastic team effort saw this side through with a well deserved win.
Renmore will take on Moyne Villa who won their semi final 3-0 versus Oughterard. Good Luck to Tommy Murray's side in the Final.
Saturday 19th March - Saw the U12 Division 2 Cup Quarter Final end Renmore 1-2 West Coast Utd. The U13 Division 2 Cup, Round 1, saw a high scoring game with Renmore running out deserved 5-3 winners over Galway Bohemians at home. The U15 Division 2 Cup Semi Final saw another win for the club as it finished Renmore 2-1 versus Cregmore/Claregalway B, well done to this group reaching a Final.
Sunday 20th March - A draw was a fair result in the GFA U17 Youths Championship as it ended Renmore 1-1 v Moyne Villa and in the U21 League away to Athenry a single goal victory gave Renmore the win. In the Western Hygiene Supplies Division 1 Renmore lost out to Craughwell United by the odd goal in a very tight match.

Massive shout out to The Galway Football Association for the use of Eamonn Deacy Park and its excellent facilities as well as players from Corrib Celtic who helped out with the session. A great idea to get grassroots clubs involved.
The course is designed to assist parents and coaches in how to plan, organise and implement FUN game orientated activities for young players.
A fantastic results that blows the Division 1 title race wide open as Renmore beat Colga in Drom. Colga's fantastic winning run was brought to an end as Renmore deservedly took all 3 points. Despite going a goal down in terrible conditions, it was Renmore whose resilience was never in doubt, as they fought back through a couple of penalties to make it 2-1 at half time. With Colga trying to get back into the game it was Renmore who hit on the counter attack to win 4-1. Colga remain top 2 points clear but the never say die attitude of Renmore means this campaign will almost certainly go to the wire. Scoring for Renmore were Keith Fitzgerald, Harry Rogers and two from Sammy Omokua. Next match is a trip to Letterfrack to take on West Coast Utd.
A top of the table clash today as Renmore Senior 'A' take on a free scoring Colga side in The Western Hygiene Supplies Division 1 game on Saturday.
The match is on at Salthill Devon's Astro in Drom at 3:30pm. Unbeaten Colga currently lead the way on 30 points with Renmore hoping to gain the valuable win to bridge a five point gap.
A tough match that promises to test both sides especially with storm Eunice doing her level best to batter the country. So why not come along and see what could be a classic.
Good set of weekend results for our U12 Boys sides with the Division 2 League match ending Renmore 2 West Coast Utd 1 courtesy of Eanna Daly & Luke Seoighe strikes.
In Division 4 it ended Galway Hibernians 2 - 6 Renmore B. Lisandro Gjejaj opened the scoring with another from Leon Clairon Hardy and Callum Flynn scoring 4 goals to win the game.

GFA U13 Boys Division 2
RENMORE 1-2 KILSHANVEY U
An early Nathan Kenny penalty in a fast paced match made this game an exciting affair. Renmore however conceded an equaliser from a deflection and went behind 2-1 in a blistering first half.
Renmore came back strongly and kept the pace up in the second half and for large parts of this half brought the game to their visitors. Despite massive effort and chances from the lads it wasn't to be and the ref blew to end the match.
Well Done to both sides on an excellent entertaining match.
Western Hygiene Supplies
Renmore AFC 3-1 Mervue Utd B
Another encouraging win to keep the push going for promotion that keeps Renmore 'A' in 2nd spot in Division 1. Evan Connolly scored with Luke Byrne scoring a brace to help secure another 3 points for Renmore.
Although the win puts Renmore 11 points clear of Dynamo Blues, the Tuam side have two games in hand to try to close the gap. So still a lot of points up for grabs for all sides in this division.
Next up for Renmore is an away trip to Craughwell United next Sunday at 11am!
All support welcome!
Connacht Shield U12 Rd 2
Renmore AFC 5-0 Real Tubber
Renmore progressed to the next round of the Connacht Shield with a polished performance against a hardworking outfit from Sligo today. A highly competitive affair throughout, Renmore proved just too strong on the day, with a hat trick for Finn O'Reilly complemented by goals from Oisin Gorham and Eanna Daly. Real Tubber worked hard throughout but couldn't break Renmore's fantastic defensive unit .
Well Done U12's who progress to Round 3.
A good week for both Senior sides as Renmore keep up the pressure on the league leaders in Division 1 with a 1-0 home win over West Coast Utd after a Paul Sinnott goal settled this match. In Divison 2 Renmore 'B'' beat Oughterard 3-1 at home. Ollie Sheppard set them on their way with a Rob Mangan goal from close range adding another. Despite conceding a penalty just before half-time Renmore's Kieron McGinty finished the tie off with a long range shot that nestled in the bottom corner of the net in the second half. Special note to Renmore debutant keeper Ger Hogan on an excellent performance today, calm and assured as his back line looked solid for so much of this game.
In the U21 league it ended Renmore 1-1 Salthill Devon. Devon second in the table provided a stern test for the home side but Renmore didn't let that trouble them as they took the lead in this match by virtue of a first half goal from top scorer Enoch Abiodun after he finished a precise through ball from Luke Smith. Leon Sheridan produced a top class save minutes later when he dived full length to push the ball around the post to maintain Renmore's advantage to the interval.
In the second half Renmore defended their lead defiantly until 8 minutes from time when a deflected shot deceived Sheridan and found the net to give the Seagull's a share of the spoils. Great display by this improving Renmore side who were unlucky not to take all 3 points.
Senior A's exited the TP Brennan Connaught Cup Round 3 on the dreaded penalties (aet 3-2) after a hard fought and scrappy game that ended 1-1 with Renmore battling back and equalising from a last gasp corner in a committed performance. Senior B also went out of the cup losing to an accomplished Claremorris side. Good Luck to all those teams who progressed to the last 32.
We continue to run our Ladies soccer evenings on Thursday nights from 7pm at the clubhouse in Renmore with great commitment and dedication from our players come wind, hail & rain as it was the other night. Lots of football, skill and laughs as the sport grows in our community for the girls!
So come along, everyone welcome to join. Contact Louise for a chat and further info.

In Division 2 on Sunday it ended in a 2-2 draw against St Patricks FC of Caherlistrane.
Lots of football this weekend just gone with U9's having great fun hosting Oughterard FC and our U10 Girls travelling to Oranmore for a Soccer Sisters blitz.
In the U12 Boys Division 2 Renmore had an emphatic win with Finn O'Reilly scoring four on the day in a 7-1 win and in the U12 Boys Division 4 another win. This time against St Bernards in tough conditions on Saturday morning, with Lisandro Gjegjaj getting the team underway and Senan O'Neill adding a brace to complete the 3-1 win.
A somewhat more comfortable win today despite the 2-1 scoreline suggests in the Connacht Junior Cup Round 2 away to Kilglass/Enniscrone FC in Sligo.
Great playing conditions despite the weather at home brought an excellent measured performance from a Renmore 'B' side that had the upper hand in this contest for the majority of the game as goals from Rob Mangan & Stephen Holland set up Renmore for victory today.
Despite conceding a late penalty Renmore 'B' saw out the match to progress to the next round.
Ladies soccer is back at Renmore and its never been more popular as a sport for all. So if you want to get involved in some Social Soccer for fitness, the craic or even fun then please Contact Louise on 0877872411.

Connacht Cup Round 2 Result
Renmore A 3-2 West Utd B
Renmore advanced to the next round of the Connacht Cup with a tight 3-2 win with goals from Stuart Donoghue, Evan Connoly and Robbie Olusola.
Thank you to West United as the game started with a minutes silence as a mark of respect for Paddy Brennan (Grandfather of Renmore 'A' Manager Stuart Donoghue).
Rest In Eternal Peace.
This Saturday 30th October it's time for the Connacht Junior Cup clash at 2pm as Renmore 'A' face West Utd 'B' at home and on Sunday 31st October it's Renmore 'B' who will travel to play Kilglass Enniscrone United of the Sligo/Leitrim Premier League in another 2pm kick off.
Fantastic day today spent at Renmore AFC as we held a marathon of Blitzes featuring Moyne Villa's U7 teams & Galway Hibernians U8 teams. The bad weather held off for the first two sessions but U10 Girls were not as fortunate as they hosted West United in the final session, but they didn't let it dampen their enthusiasm. Lots of games and great fun was had by all.
Thanks to all of our visitors and to all that helped out on the day.
Come join us at Renmore AFC for some fun and games, tricks and treats! All scarers need to register due to Covid - 19 guidelines. Register on Clubforce on 'Renmore AFC Events' or use the following link:
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.

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.
