FOBG Crowdfunding Project - we made it!
Day 42 of 42.
Well we did it! Thanks to some very generous people we reached our £7,000 target with our Crowdfunding project.
A special Thank you to all who contributed.
We still need help to locate and buy a compact tractor - sponsorship deals available!
Below is a picture of what the new dressing rooms will look like:
Changing room upgrade - project update
Last weekend good progress was made towards extending the size of our two main changing rooms in order to meet the criteria set by the Kent county League that will allow the First XI to gain promotion to the Premier Division next season.
The work so far can be seen in the pictures below and was carried out by Matt Ellis (Project Manager), Luke Foulsham (plumbing) and assisted by Gary Harrigan, Jordan Glen, Danny Rose, Rohan Howell, Harry Tanner and Dave Martin.
Pitch maintenance update - ferret required
It has been just over two weeks since the work on the top pitch finished and thanks to favourable weather conditions the grass seed has germinated and is progressing very well as shown in the pictures below.
Unfortunately the pitch is now under attack by rabbits who delight in digging holes all over our new playing surface. If anybody knows somebody who keeps ferrets I think we may have a job for them.

Club training has now finished for the season.

Disciplinary and Match Day Fines
