George Jones appointed Reserves manager

Ex-FOBG player George Jones has been appointed manager of our Reserves side with immediate effect.

Since George left us he has been captain of Greenwich Borough FC and after getting injured took on a role coaching their Under 21's. 

George knows the club well and is very happy to return to Farrow Fields.  He brings with him two assistants, Gary Stock and Nick Marsh.  

We welcome them all and wish them great success at the club.

Vets Fixtures

The full fixture list for FOBG Vets has now been added to the website giving an extensive 37 game season for both teams thanks to the hard work over the summer by Toby Harlow. The Vets season starts on Sunday 31st August with the Senior Vets at home to Orpington Vets whilst the Young Vets travel to Dulwich to take on Greenwich Challenge Vets.


Outstanding Fines 2013 - 14

We are now over mid-way through August and so far only £60 has been paid or accounted for in respect of outstanding fines from last season. The committee would like to remind players that payment of the outstanding amount is due by 31st August which is not far away. PayPal, cash or cheques can be used to settle the balance you owe but please make sure you reference any PayPal payments accordingly. 


Vets summer training ends for another year

Vets summer training has now ended as the evening light isn't lasting as long.  Matches begin this weekend for both teams so hopefully we will see the beneficial effects!


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 mailbox@fobgfc.org 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 carry out training on Thursday evenings at Farrow Fields on the top pitch from 7.00pm onwards. The sessions are open to any new players who might be interested in getting involved in league football with one of the club's teams.


Players Wanted

We are looking for new players for our Saturday First XI in particular at Kent County Premier / First Division level.

If any new players would like to come along to pre-season training please contact us at mailbox@fobgfc.org .
