Renfrew Football Club - About our Club

Renfrew Juniors FC was formed in 1912 after the previous Junior club in the town, Renfrew Victoria, went defunct in 1910. The ‘Vics’ also played at Western Park. During the period between Renfrew Victoria folding and Renfrew Juniors starting, Western Park was used by a juvenile side Orchard Rovers, but local fans, not content with this, decided to form the Junior Club that still exists to this day. The Club name Renfrew Juniors was changed to Renfrew Football Club following the Intermediate Dispute which lasted from 1925 to 1931.

  The early years of the Club saw the team reach the semi-finals of the national competition, the Scottish Junior Cup, on a few occasions - in 1914 and 1918, and a few more times throughout the years following, in 1933,1936, 1947, 1978 and more latterly 2005/06. The Final has been reached three times, in 1917, 1962 and 2001. Incredibly , the first occasion saw no goals conceded on the way to the Final, and it was only by a single goal that the final itself was lost, and this after a replay, when St.Mirren Juniors were the victors. Similarly, it was after a replay in 1962 the team lost out to winners Kirkintilloch Rob Roy.  MORE
