RESERVES DRAW COMFORT AT HOME

image34

A highly competitive and tough opening match to the Galway FA Reserves League.

 

This game was a chance by both sets of managers to get players match fit for the new season that kicked off last week, and both teams didn't disappoint as it ended in a very competitive 1-1 draw.


If the strong starting line ups show anything this season it will be how entertaining and also important this competition will be for both clubs as the season progresses.

SUCCESS DRIVEN MANAGER FOR JUNIORS

image35

 Renmore AFC is delighted to confirm that Stuart Donoghue has been appointed as our new First Team Manager. After returning to the club in 2017, Stuart took on the role of Player/Manager for our new Junior B side. In their first season together, Stuart and the squad achieved promotion from Division 4 in what was a fantastic achievement for such a new side. Last April, and in their second season, Stuart and the team reached the Jack Lillis Cup Final in Eamonn Deacy Park and were unlucky not to bring home the silverware in a great game against East United. With his track record of success and a young squad to work with, everyone at the club is excited to see what Stuart and the First Team can achieve in the coming years. Stuart will be ably assisted by Emlyn Coyne and Damien Sweeney. 

MR BERNARD SHAPIRO REMEMBERED

image36

 Bernard Shapiro,  founding member and Honorary President of Renmore AFC was a stalwart for Renmore  since 1973, shepherding it through its early days and laying the foundation for the current success. 


He will forever be remembered and honoured in the annals of the club's history and in the history of soccer in Galway.  A fitting tribute to an inspiring man.   


We are grateful to the Connacht Tribune for their permission to link to their article that was published shortly after Mr Shapiro's passing in December 2014.

U15'S START LEAGUE CAMPAIGN

image38

 The Under 15 GFA Championship got underway Saturday and saw Corrib Celtic win 3-1 as Renmore traveled away from home in their first match of the season.

Trailing two goals to nil at half time, a lifeline 20 minutes from time gave Renmore a glimmer of hope going into the last phase of the match, but a low strike inside the box saw the Annaghdown side take the points to seal the win.

RENMORE 3-0 MERLIN WOODS FC/MEDTRONIC

image41

A perfect start to Donoghue's tenure as manager, as Renmore won their local derby versus Merlin Woods FC with a comprehensive 3 nil win. Deservedly leading at half time through an inswinging free kick at the midway point of the half, it was the visitors who seemed to be gaining control as the second half progressed. However a clinical finish to make it two from outside the box and a quick fire tenacious third, which saw Renmores perseverance quickly gain possession and counter, put paid to any thought of a come back despite Merlin Woods good passages of play up to that point. With over a week til their next match, an away trip to Dynamo Blues in Tuam on Sunday 8th Aug 11am kick off cannot come quickly enough. Renmore will relish the opportunity to prepare for their next challenge if this first showing of the season is anything to go by.
