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.
Well what a game, end to end with plenty of goals, incident and high drama for the watching fans of both sides as it finished Kinvara Utd 4 Renmore 4 away in Killina. With this mid table clash ending in a draw with the Renmore goals coming from Ailill Connolly, Christian Ryan, James Lee & Daniel Ofili a bit more luck and who knows what may have happened. The U14's whom compete in the Galway FA's Division 2 will look forward to their Connacht Shield match against Ballymote Celtic on November 2nd with a 2pm scheduled kick off. Wishing them all the best in this competition.
Western Hygiene Division 1 RESULT:
Renmore AFC 2-3 MacDara
It was a bad day at the office for the First Team, over the weekend, as they twice threw away the lead to MacDara who snatched all 3 points in Renmore to end the home side's 100% league record. The home side's goals came from Paddy Gannon and Rory Glynn.
Renmore will hope to bounce back immediately this Friday night when they face a tough away trip to Tuam Celtic.
U14's lost out to Kilshanvey 4-1 with Daehan Cool scoring the consolation goal for Renmore. Their next match will be this Saturday 19th October in the Galway FA U14 Division 2
Kick off is at 12.30pm Away in Kinvara
Other Underage Results from the weekend
U12 Div 3 - Renmore 4 V 1 Tuam Celtic B
U14 Div 2 - Renmore 1 V 4 Kilshanvey
Youth Cup - Maree/Oran 1 V 2 Renmore
U16 Prem - Cregmore 2 V 4 Renmore
Renmore will be hoping to keep the momentum going as they face a home match against Connemara's Macdara this Saturday 12th October at 2pm. Despite keeping another clean sheet in their previous game Renmore will be wary of their visitors who will be looking to kick start their season. All support is appreciated and welcomed this coming weekend.
In the U1`3 SFAI Sketchers Cup it finished Renmore 3 - 0 St Josephs B. U15's lost in the Championship 5-1 to Bearna Na Forbacha and in the U17 FAI Cup U17 Renmore had a convincing and impressive 4-1 away victory over Conn Rangers of the Mayo League with the home side replying with a penalty.
A terrific hat trick saw Renmore carry on from their fantastic start to this season in a win that saw them go fourth in the table with two games in hand. In a tetchy game it was club skipper Paddy Gannon who showed the way scoring first with a header to get the ball rolling before a Cian Gallagher hat trick and a Flo Jouffe Gerard strike won the points for Renmore.
Renmore reserves ran out good winners away to Tuam Celtic in their Reserve league fixture 4-0. In a match which saw first team manager Stuart Donoghue score, three excellent first class saves from Renmore keeper Stephen Doherty and a Man Of The Match performance from Daniel Corbett it was a great away day for the confident squad as they face Loughrea Rams in Renmore next Saturday at 2pm. Get out and support the lads!
It was a case of what may have been as a gallant Renmore side went out of the FAI Junior Cup to Athenry.....just.
Despite going 2 nil down it was a brace from Cian Gallagher (one a penalty) that made this tie a fascinating affair with both sides creating chances as the game progressed. Renmore battled back into this game and if it wasn't for a moment of individual brilliance from Athenry there might have been a different outcome.
Next up is a derby versus Mervue B next Sunday (6th Oct) at 11am in Mervue.
MATCH REPORT HERE
Under 14's lost out to Arrow Harps in Riverstown Sligo in the U14 SFAI Skechers Cup on a scoreline of 6-2. Two excellent strikes from outside the box from Warren Ward & Christian Ryan respectively saw Renmore put in a battling performance.
Good Luck to Harps in the next round.

A fantastic and relatively easy win for Renmore in the Connacht Junior Cup as they welcomed Real Tubber to Renmore at the weekend. Scorers Darragh Mulgannon, Alberto Cabanyes (2), Eoin O'Boyle, Patrick McKernon, Kieron McGinty & Paddy Gannon.
In a game of total domination from start to finish Renmore will probably meet tougher opposition in the next round but they must firstly focus their attention on the next important fixture against Athenry coming up in the FAI Junior Cup next weekend on Saturday.

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.

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.
