FOBG in Africa!
Our used kit is being put to good use at Tag Rugby Trust Uganda where it will have a new lease of life. It happens to be close to the Ugandan colours If any other club wishes to donate kit (particularly youth size), please contact FOBG.
Funding and Grant Bid Manager - volunteer role
We are looking for a Funding and Grant Bid Manager to co-ordinate grant applications for the club. The position would be on a volunteer basis.
Responsibilities would include:
- compiling a full list of available grants
- scripting sponsorship proposals
- writing bids (templates are available)
- managing the full proposal plan
Modern day grassroots football has multiple funding channels which at present, we sadly do not have the manpower to capitalise on. We ideally seek someone able to spare one evening per month to attend a club committee meeting, plus however much time they are willing to contribute to help this village club expand and develop their funding capabilities. You will be responsible for the quality of all aspects of the bids, including written documentation and presentations.
Any help will be greatly received.
To register your interest, please contact the club at email@example.com or Matt Ellis on 07799 663642.

FA CHARTER STANDARD

This is official recognition by the Football Association given to non-league clubs that have demonstrated that they are well run and sustainable. It also recognises the club's commitment to coaching, player and coach development, and the raising of standards of behaviour in the game.
The benefits of having Charter Standard status include:
- Use of the FA Charter Standard Logo
- Enhancement of funding applications and bids
- Kit and equipment grants from the Football Foundation

- Starter pack, including posters, codes of conduct, certificates
This represents a major step forward in the development of Farnborough OBG FC and illustrates the ambitions of the club to develop further both on and off the field.
