Weekend round-up

Snow and ice took care of 7 of our 8 scheduled games this weekend.

Only the Third XI played, and they're glad they did, as they won 8-1 away to Croydon BR Reserves at Club Langley.

Jordan Glen scored 4, Gary Harrigan 2, Josh Eastwood and Stefan Jones 1 apiece.


Thanks Roger!

Roger FrenchWe regretfully announce that Roger French has left the club after 15 years' loyal service, both as Vets/Senior Vets co-manager and committee member.

Roger joined us in 2001 and played over 300 games for the Guild's Vets sides, most of which as player/manager.  

He gave 100% to the Guild, both on and off the pitch.  He was co-editor for the club's superb match programme over its three year run and was instrumental in attracting sponsorship and funding, culminating in a £15,000 grant from Ibstock Cory to renovate our pitches last summer.  

We wish Roger all the best for the future.


Andy Giles leaves the Guild

We are sorry to announce that Andy Giles has decided to step down from the post of First XI manager with immediate effect, and leave FOBG.

Andy GilesAndy came in to a difficult situation when he arrived last summer, with some key players of our title-winning squad leaving for higher things, and having to play all our matches away from home while the changing rooms were being refurbished. 

His job situation changed in October, meaning he had less time to prepare the players for matches, and he took a few weeks away in December.  Nevertheless he leaves us in 12th place (out of 16) in the Premier Division, no mean achievement given the circumstances.

We wish Andy all success in his future endeavours.

Alex Barnes, Lee Gibbs and Adam Law will take charge of the First XI for the remainder of the season.
