Aaron Evans nets 5 in big First XI win
The First XI continued their pre-season friendly preparations with a 9-3 win against Equinoccial at Bishop Justus. Aaron Evans bagged five goals, Tommy Crawley two, and Luke Foulsham and Dave Martin scored one each.
The Reserves went down 2-4 away to FC Elmstead in their first friendly of the season. Charlie Pitt and new player Kane scored for FOBG.
Here's a short animation of how our new top pitch has evolved since Bourne Amenity began work at the end of May. To see it, press Shift and F5, or Shift and Refresh.
Vets Summer Training
Vets summer training will move to Tugmutton Common next Wednesday as the surface at Tubbenden Rec is not exactly ideal. The clubhouse will be open for beers after training.
This session is open to anybody interested in getting back up to "speed" before the season starts and will consist of a 3-touch game rather than any strenuous exercises.
Pre-season training is now getting underway at FOBG. Please click the Training option from the left hand menu for details.
