Renfrewshire MSP Derek Mackay has spoken of his delight at Renfrew FC’s recent success and his hope for the new season, including a call for locals to show their support.
Following their promotion last season the club will play in Junior Football’s West Region Premiership. This season’s cup matches begin next weekend with the side returning to league action on 4th August with a home match against Pollok.
Derek Mackay said:
“It was great to see the club promoted last season, and as they prepare for the season ahead I hope everyone gets behind Renfrew and gives their support to our local team.
“Being Renfrew born and bred, I was pleased to play my part in helping to ensure the club got its new stadium ‘off the ground’, and after a difficult few years on and off the park it is great to see the team doing well.
“The youth development is growing and I have seen first hand the work they are doing in the community.
“I wish them well for the season ahead and I am confident last year’s promotion is just another stepping stone on the journey to future success and continued stability.”
