Saturday round-up

A mixed bag for our Saturday teams but vital wins for the title-chasing Reserves and Third XI.

The First XI lost 1-0 at home to Bredhurst Juniors, a disputed second-half penalty settling the issue.

The Reserves won 2-1 away to Metrogas Reserves, Russ Nethercot got his first goal of the season with Dan Godward also scoring.  With FC Elmstead beating Long Lane Reserves, the top four teams are separated by just three points. Stansfeld O&B Reserves are in pole position to claim top spot.

The Third XI beat Crayford Athletic 3-1 at home.  Gary Harrigan scored twice, including a penalty, and James Price got the other goal.  It is even more congested at the top of the Thirds' table with FIVE teams separated by just ONE point, although Old Colfeians Reserves have now played all their games. 

The Fourth XI lost in agonising fashion in their home Tom Cooper Cup group match with Teviot Rangers.  The visitors scored the winner in the last seconds, leaving our cup hopes dangling by a thread.  Jez Allen's penalty save was in vain. The Fourths' goals were scored by Harry Tanner (2) and Graeme Barnes.


Georgie Belchamber Sustains Broken Leg

Desperate news for the Reserves player Georgie Belchamber who has broken his leg in what seemed an innocuous challenge in the semi-final with FC Elmstead on Saturday 12 April.  

Georgie is due to go on honeymoon on Friday, but that may well have to be cancelled. The club is organising a collection for him; to donate, visit our Pay Online page at www.fobgfc.org/payments.php, click on the Donate button and put "Georgie" in the payments description.

It goes without saying that we wish him a full and speedy recovery.
