Outstanding Fines 2013 - 14

We are now well into the start of the season and to date we have collected £150 from players but there is still £930 due to be paid. The committee would like to remind players that payment of the outstanding amount is due now. PayPal, cash or cheques can be used to settle the balance you owe but please make sure you reference any PayPal payments accordingly. If the OS amounts are not settled by the end of this month the names of players and OS amounts will be published for all to see. Obviously not all the players on the list are still playing for FOBG but we can contact the Kent FA and inform them of an outstanding amount which will impact their ability to play for another club. If you don't want the shame of being named then please make arrangements to pay ASAP.

Disciplinary and Match Day Fines

Further to the recent Newsletter article highlighting the amount of unpaid player fines from last season the Management Committee have decided to reiterate the procedure for monitoring and payment of match day fines that will be in place for next season.

Every player that registers to play league/cup football for Farnborough Old Boys Guild (FOBG) agrees to abide by the rules of not only the club but of the league that they play in. As a result players will be responsible for the payment of any disciplinary fines arising during matches played.

Once a fine has been officially notified to the club the appropriate team manager and the player concerned will be notified by email and/or text msg. The player will then have 14 days to settle the balance with the club treasurer.

If payment is not made by the end of this period the player concerned will be asked to submit a written explanation to detailing why payment has not been made. This will be reviewed by the Management Committee at the next available monthly meeting and an appropriate decision will be made to resolve payment.

If no written explanation is provided by the player by the next available Committee meeting or the player persists in non-payment then the Management Committee will consider suspending the player from playing for FOBG until part or full payment has been received.

As this is the time of signing up new players can all team managers ensure that every member of his squad is aware of this procedure.

Sunday Reserves Training

The Sunday Reserves will carry out training for the last time tonight at Farrow Fields on the top pitch from 7.00pm onwards. As the light has faded they will join the club training session at The Priority from next Wednesday.
