Senior Vets on tour!

The Senior Vets enjoyed (to say the least!) their end-of-season tour to Belgium.

In temperatures in excess of 30 degrees they played three games in two days: v. US Fontoy Vets of France, winning 1-0 (scorer: George Kleanthous); FC Mirebellois Veterans (France), losing 1-2 (Kypros Michael, Steve Blanchard OG), and FC Wrakken (Belgium), losing 2-3 (Kypros Michael, Lee Henderson, Colin Brazier OG).

It was a brilliant weekend, enjoyed by all.  

Many thanks to tour organiser Phil Anthony for sorting everything out so superbly.

TRAINING

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.

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

Current players: see your team manager for information; their details are on the team pages on this website.

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

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.
