KCL fixtures for January

The Kent County League fixtures for January have been released and are now on the club website.

Christmas Club Game

There will - subject to weather - be a club match on Tuesday 27 December (a Bank Holiday).  The kick off time has not been finalised but 11:00am looks favourite.

The game will be in the tradition of FOBG club matches, with mixed sides of theoretically equal ability made up of representatives of every Guild team, and ex-players too!

The bar will be open, friends and families welcome, Christmas jumpers encouraged!

If you would like to play please click HERE to send an email to the club.

Sunday round-up

The Sunday XI drew 3-3 away to Hayden Youth Association in the league. Jamie Boss, Alex Wray and James Brand were on the scoresheet for FOBG.

The Sunday Reserves won 3-2 away to Sydenham Sports, also in a league game.

The Vets went down 3-1 away to Glendale Vets, Paul Tanton continuing his recent good form with another goal.

The Senior Vets were heavily beaten, 7-2 away to a strong Orpington Vets side. Pete Harvey and an own goal accounted for the Guild's goals.

Saturday round-up

The First XI reached the halfway mark in their league campaign with a gritty 2-1 win at Lydd Town Reserves to go above them in the table. Dekklund Wallace and Jourdan Howard gave the Guild a 2-0 lead which was halved with 5 minutes (plus 6 added minutes) to go.  Several Lydd corners were then defended before the referee blew the final whistle.

Dekklund Wallace (15) puts the Guild 1-0 up at Lydd

The Reserves were beaten 5-1 at home in the league by Drummond Athletic. Nick Pitt got the goal for FOBG.

The Third XI drew 3-3 away to Johnson & Phillips Reserves in the league. Russell Leigh joined regulars Sam Tidmarsh and Gary Harrigan on the scoresheet.

The Fourth XI also drew, 2-2 at home to TW AFC in a league match.  Jamie Spiteri and Jack Sheehy scored for Jez Allen's side.

Club sponsorship needed

Following on from the works in the clubhouse and on the pitches there is still much to be done.

We are looking for any sponsorship for any teams, footballs (we lose at least two a week), grounds (always work to do to improve our pitches!). Just a few of the items we need sponsorship for!

If you are interested in sponsoring us, please email the club.

Also, if you have any ideas for club functions that would raise money we are all ears!

Players Wanted

We are looking for players capable of playing Kent County Premier League standard for our first team; if you are interested please drop an email to
