Sunday round-up

The Sunday XI and the Sunday Reserves both lost 4-1 in league matches, the former at home to Eden Park Rangers Reserves (scorer: Laurence Ennis-Webb, penalty) and the latter away to runaway leaders Kaleburnu (Kevin Lott).

The Vets' match away to Baltic Vets fell victim to the week's rain, while the refurbished top pitch at Farrow Fields held up, unfortunately for the Senior Vets as they were beaten 7-3 by Sanco Super Vets, whose under-age guest scored four goals.  It used to be a familiar name on FOBG scoresheets - Bobby Moulson!  Pete Harvey, Kypros Michael and an own goal supplied the Guild goals.

Saturday round-up

The First XI were 3-1 winners at home against bottom club Guru Nanak in a league match.  Lamar Myers, Jourdan Howard and Alex Barnes scored.

The Reserves went down 4-2 away to Sporting Club Thamesmead, ending the match with nine players. Tom Handley scored his first goal for the club, with Matt Jenner also on target.

The Third XI drew 3-3 away to Iron Tugboat City in the league. Stefan Jones scored two with Nick Stannard also on the scoresheet.

The Fourth XI suffered shootout agony as they went out of the Kent Cup after two hours' goalless football at home to St Lawrence Reserves at Farrow Fields.

We have open club training sessions every week on floodlit artificial surfaces.

New players are welcome; please contact the club for details of sessions.

FA CHARTER STANDARD

FA Charter Standard Information FOBG has held FA Charter Standard Adult Club status for several years now. This is official recognition by the Football Association given to non-league clubs that have demonstrated that they are well run and sustainable. It also recognises the club's commitment to coaching, player and coach development, and the raising of standards of behaviour in the game.
The benefits of having Charter Standard status include:

  • Use of the FA Charter Standard Logo
  • Enhancement of funding applications and bids
  • Kit and equipment grants from the Football Foundation
  • Exclusive workshops
  • Starter pack, including posters, codes of conduct, certificates

This represents a major step forward in the development of Farnborough OBG FC and illustrates the ambitions of the club to develop further both on and off the field.

Many thanks to Malcolm Poynter for his hard work in achieving this recognition for the club.
