Jack Eddleston breaks a leg in the Thirds' semi-final

Jack Eddleston suffered a leg fracture in Saturday's Sevenoaks Cup semi-final. He had an operation on Sunday which went well.

The match was abandoned and will be replayed on Good Friday.

All at the Guild wish Jack a speedy recovery.

Sunday round-up

A quiet day on the league front as neither the Sunday XI nor Reserves had a game scheduled

The Vets may wish they hadn't either, as both teams lost.

The younger Vets were  beaten 4-2 at Farrow Fields by Farleigh VetsDean Wyatt and Barry Grainger scored for the Guild.

The Senior Vets reached 50 goals for the season but were defeated 5-2 away to Catford Wanderers Vets. Michael Hills and George Kleanthous found the net.

Saturday round-up

Apart from the terrible news in the Third XI match (above), we had mixed fortunes on Saturday.

The First XI were knocked out of the Bill Manklow Inter-Regional Challenge Cup on penalties against Club Langley, after 120 minutes of goalless football at Farrow Fields.

The Reserves beat AFC Lewisham 8-1 in a league match, also at Farnborough. Pat Harvey scored 4, with Ed Breen, Ben French, Nick Pitt and Mitch Combstock also netting.

The Fourth XI got back to winning ways with a 3-2 away win against Dulwich Village Reserves in a President's Cup Group D match. A good game for the Allen family, with Jamie scoring twice and dad Jez saving a penalty.  Eddie Figg also scored for the Guild.

Funding and Grant Bid Manager - volunteer role

We are looking for a Funding and Grant Bid Manager to co-ordinate grant applications for the club. The position would be on a volunteer basis.

Responsibilities would include:

  • compiling a full list of available grants
  • scripting sponsorship proposals
  • writing bids (templates are available)
  • managing the full proposal plan

Modern day grassroots football has multiple funding channels which at present, we sadly do not have the manpower to capitalise on. We ideally seek someone able to spare one evening per month to attend a club committee meeting, plus however much time they are willing to contribute to help this village club expand and develop their funding capabilities. You will be responsible for the quality of all aspects of the bids, including written documentation and presentations.

Any help will be greatly received.

To register your interest, please contact the club at mailbox@fobgfc.org or Matt Ellis on 07799 663642.
