It’s been a tough week for Renaissance following a listless 3-6 defeat to Team KR and the subsequent resignation of manager Coluccio. A season which showed initial promise has all but disintegrated and the club finds itself at a crossroads. However, there remains two games of the season for new interim boss Brunelleschi to negotiate, and the hope that having reached rock bottom, Renaissance can begin the long journey back towards redemption.
First up is a clash against The Mighty Quinns. The team in yellow defeated Renaissance 3-1 two weeks ago and they will be looking to repeat this success on Wednesday night. TMQ were comfortably beaten 4-1 by Jason’s City last week but can finish the season in seventh place and safely clear from the wooden spoon spot if they can go on a good run in their remaining matches.
With striker Stephen Wood in great form, TMQ have a credible attacking threat, but they remain vulnerable in defence. Indeed, if Renaissance had not been so wasteful in the first half against them, the score line would have looked much different.
For Renaissance, the task of avoiding a ‘doubling’ against TMQ, and afterwards Jason’s City remains on the agenda. Mathematically, Renaissance can finish fifth in the table, depending on other results. Two victories would leave them with an 8-8 record.
With the official announcement by the club that Renaissance are moving on from Camden at the end of the month, these remain the only positive outcomes left to strive towards.
Despite developments on and off the field recently, the club have reported an increase in ticket sales for this week’s game. Both fans and the wider public are keen to see what lies in store next for Renaissance.
