FOBG Reserves 2014-15

It is with great sadness and regret that we have had to withdraw our Reserves from the NRG Kent County League Division 2 West with immediate effect.

Weekend round-up

The Sunday XI are rapidly becoming the draw specialists of the league after a 0-0 stalemate against Eden Park Rangers Reserves at Farrow Fields.  

The Sunday Reserves went down 1-0 with a bare 11 at Cudham United Reserves courtesy of an own goal and several missed chances. Jordan Burton doesn't remember running over any black cats on the way to the ground!

Despite huge efforts to find an alternative pitch to Farrow Fields' unplayable top pitch, the Young Vets had to call their match off against Crofton Albion Vets.

The Senior Vets edged past Glendale Vets 2-1 in Warlingham, Simon Thomas and "guest" Barry Grainger scoring.


The Fourth XI got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win against Old Colfeians in their Ashgrove Trophy quarter-final.  Jez Allen saved a penalty in the first half, then conceded an inadvertent own goal to give the visitors the lead.  A fine second half comeback was topped with goals from Jack Norton, Rob Osborne and Dan Prendergast. They will meet Ten Em Bee at home in the semi-final.

The First XI did not have a game this weekend, and the Reserves' match was called off.

The Third XI got a point with a 2-2 draw away to Iron Tugboat City.  Nick Stannard got both FOBG goals.

Payment of match day fines

At the last Management Committee meeting the issue of payment of fines was raised. From the start of this season a more robust process of logging and requesting payment of fines has been put in place but the actual payment of fines by players is not up to scratch.

At this moment in time there are 23 fines that are outstanding amounting to £295. Individual players and team managers are notified of fines when the club is informed by the relevant league authorities. Players are then requested to make payment to the club within 14 days but this is not always happening resulting in the club being substantially out of pocket.

If you have been booked or sent off at some point this season but not paid your fine can you please make an effort to clear this debt as soon as possible.
