We are officially opening our new dressing rooms and renovated pitch with an action-packed Launch Day at the club on Sunday 25 September, 12 noon til 6pm

The day also marks our thanks to our new main sponsor, A. C. Wilgar Plumbing and Heating, and to all those that have played a part in the transformation of the club's facilities over the summer, whether through financial help or the donation of time and hard work, or a combination of the above!

To kick the day off (literally!) our younger Vets team will take on a Sun Chemicals XI at 10.30am.  Thanks to Sun for their contribution to the renovation works.

On the day there will be:

  • Licensed bar
  • BBQ
  • Local live music

First game on the new pitch on Sunday!

This Sunday will mark the inaugural game on our newly renovated top pitch when FOBG Vets take on a Sun Chemical XI to start proceedings for our Open Day Launch event. The playing surface on the top pitch was fully renovated to improve surface drainage by Bourne Amenity at the beginning of the summer thanks to funding of £15,000 provided by Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust.  

Sun Chemical were invited to provide the opposition in recognition of their contribution to the new dressing room refurbishment at Farrow Fields.

Angela Haymonds, Secretary of Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust said: “ICET is delighted to have provided funding to keep this football pitch playable throughout the season. We hope that many exciting and enjoyable matches are played here and that FOBG FC goes from strength to strength as it attracts more people to come and play the beautiful game.” 

Angela continued: “This is just one of the many community projects Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust has funded through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). The scheme offers funding to projects that benefit communities living within 10 miles of a landfill site. Groups interested in submitting projects should visit our website to find out more.”

Ibstock Cory Environmental Trust (ICET) was established in February 2001, in conjunction with Ibstock Brick Limited and Cory Environmental Ltd and funded through the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). To date it has supported over 400 projects and funding totalling over £6.9 million has been approved. ICET mainly supports projects in Dudley, South Gloucestershire and Sevenoaks, where Cory Environmental has operational sites with links to Ibstock Brickworks.
