Saturday 1sts, Reserves, 3rds December Fixtures

The KCL and SLA have released December fixtures for the First XI, Reserves and Third XI.  These can now be seen on the team pages of our website.

Sunday Reserves get their first win!!

To cap a great weekend all round, the Sunday Reserves won their first match of the season with a 3-2 victory at Premium United.  Luke Williams (2) and Jordan Burton were the Guild's scorers.

Heavy rain put paid to the Young Vets' match at Charlton Rangers and the Senior Vets' home match against Reigate Priory Vets.

The Sunday XI did not have a fixture.

Another grand slam Saturday!!

All four Saturday teams won for the first time since...September 20th! But before that it was a very long time ago!

The First XI had a great 2-1 home win against table toppers Forest Hill Park.

The Fourth XI get second billing by getting to the Junior Challenge Cup semi final!  They won 3-2 away to Sidcup Athletic wil goals from Rob Osborne, Sam Bilsby and Chris Thompson.  A short account of the game has been posted on their page, and on the home page as a match report.  The semi-final will be away at TW AFC, who surprised Old Colfeians CFC 4-0 in their quarter-final.

The  Reserves won 7-3 away to New Park in the Barry Bundock West Kent Challenge Shield.  A four goal margin but it still took extra time to separate the side.  We face FC Elmstead at home in the quarter-final.

The Third XI recovered from last week's upset by beating Johnson and Phillips Reserves 4-0 at Farrow Fields.

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.
