First XI and Reserves Fixtures for January

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

Club game - reminder

Top press: kick off has been set for 2pm.

With the long break from league football looming, we plan to stage a club match at Farrow Fields on Saturday 23rd December.

Players from all Guild teams are invited to take part.

This is an informal match where we mix up the sides to try to ensure a good competitive game. It is always played in a good spirit and is a chance to flex muscles that may have up to a month without the rigours of competitive football.

Of course the match will be subject to weather conditions.

Please do not assume it is going ahead and you can just turn up on the day.  We need enough players registering to play so that we can organise a referee, refreshments etc. and pick the two sides, although we hope we can find room for latecomers.

If you would like to be a part of this match (£5 subs), or just help out on the day (free!) then please email the club by clicking HERE, indicating preferred approximate kick off time, if you have one.  As well as players, we will need two team managers, a referee and volunteers to help out on the day.

Everyone will get a decent chunk of a game if we are over-subscribed.  This has always been a very enjoyable fixture and a good fundraiser for the club, so please support it if you can.

First XI game on 16 December postponed

The First XI match at home to Peckham Town next Saturday has been postponed because Peckham have players involved in the inter - league match the same day.

Weekend Round-up

The bad weather put paid to all our Sunday matches.

It was all league matches on Saturday.

The First XI lost 1-0 to a disputed penalty away to Tudor Sports. The Guild didn't get the benefit of a similar decision at the other end.

The Reserves won 4-1 at home to Welling Town ReservesLee Friend hit a hat-trick and Pat Harvey got the other goal for FOBG.

The Third XI's match suffered a late postponement and a young Fourth XI side went down 1-0 away to Meridian Sports.

Training break

There will be no training over the Christmas and New Year holiday period.  

The last session of the year will be on Wednesday 13 December, resuming on Wednesday 10 January.
