Training is OFF this week
Our training at Bishop's Justus is OFF this Wednesday (26th) as the school is closed.
New to FOBG - half term soccer school!
We are running a soccer school in the coming half term, run by qualified coaches.
Details in the poster below:
The First XI beat Wateringbury 3-2 in the Kent Intermediate Challenge Shield at Farrow Fields. Scorers were Mason Horne, Steve McQueen and Harry Tanner.
The Reserves lost 3-1 away to Danson Sports in a league game. Dylan Charlery-Bowen scored for the Guild.
The Third XI went down 5-3 away to Eltham Town Reserves in the league. FOBG scorers were Grant Kelsey, Joe McDonald and George Osman.
The Fourth XI went top of the table following their 4-2 success at home to Groundhoppers. Harry Smart scored twice, with Eddie Figg and George Perry also finding the net.
The Sunday XI progressed to the second round of the Kent Junior Sunday Cup with a 2-1 home victory against FC Elmstead. Laurence Ennis-Webb and Alex Wray scored for the Guild.
The Sunday Reserves and Vets matches both fell victim to the heavy overnight rain.
A depleted Senior Vets squad (Paul Parsons played his first outfield match for five years!) went down to West Farleigh Vets and came away with an excellent 1-0 victory. Jay Hardy's stoppage time header was the difference between the two sides in a game played in excellent spirit. Patrice Mongelard's report is available HERE.
Help Charlie Wynn
The players and management of all four Sunday teams will know Ian Wynn...by sight if not by name.
He is the "seafood man" who has been coming to the club every week for many years. His son Charlie had a promising boxing career until a sparring accident left him with an acute subdural haematoma (a large brain bleed). He had to have emergency lifesaving surgery where a portion of his skull was removed to relieve dangerous pressure.
His rehabilitation is not NHS funded; extra physiotherapy, occupational therapy and speech and language therapy sessions all have to be privately funded, along with any adjustments that may be needed to his home.
You can support Charlie and learn his full story by visiting the GoFundMe page HERE.
Ian, Charlie and his family will appreciate every donation, no matter how small.
Elvis, in the shape of award winning Elvis Tribute artist Johnny Lee Memphis, is returning to FOBG on Saturday 20th October.
Call Nick Pitt on 07395 821447 to reserve your tickets only £15 each).
Jazz at the Guild
We have high quality live jazz every Friday night at Farrow Fields. Click on the poster to see who's playing.
We regard training as essential; not just for fitness and player progression but for building team spirit, increasing tactical awareness and generally improving chances of on-pitch success.
During the season we have a club training session every Wednesday evening from 8pm-9pm at Bishop Justus School, Magpie Hall Lane, Bromley, Kent BR2 8HZ on a full size 3G pitch. Click HERE for a map.
Prospective new players are welcome to come along.
FA CHARTER STANDARD
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.More information regarding FA Charter Standard status.
