Midweek results

There were two matches at Farrow Fields on Tuesday evening (3 May).

The Reserves took on Nomads in a Kent County League fixture, losing 0-5, having been well in the match until the last quarter, while the Senior Vets beat Eagles Fitter Fans Super Vets 3-0, with a brace from George Kleanthous and a goal from Waine Hetherington.


FOBG 100 Club prize draw - latest result

The draw for the November!!! FOBG 100 Club prizes took place on Tuesday 3 May at 9.00pm in the bar in front of Eagles Fitter Fans Super Vets who were kind enough to join the draw to ensure all numbers were sold, and unkind enough to win the second prize!  

The results were drawn by Club Chairman Steve Viner using a random number generator and the winners were:

First place - number 48 Gary Willison £70

Second place - number 52 Paul Tate £20

Third place - number 27 Dean Murphy £10


Sunday round-up

Two 4-goal home defeats for our league sides, while the Senior Vets put in one of their best performances of the season (and many others!).

The Sunday XI went down 0-4 against Freelands, while the Sunday Reserves lost 2-6 against New Beckenham, with player/manager Jordan Glen scoring both FOBG goals.

The Young Vets had a free week as opponents AFC Greenwich Vets were involved in a cup final.

The Senior Vets avenged a recent defeat to Riverside Wanderers with a 4-0 success in the return fixture, which had been moved to Glebe FC in Chislehurst.  The Guild scorers were George Kleanthous, Rob Lipscomb, Waine Hetherington and Simon Thomas.


Saturday round-up

The First XI guaranteed at least a top-two finish with a win at title rivals Stansfeld O&B ClubLee Friend scored both goals. 

Next Saturday sees the title decider with FOBG at home to Peckham Town. The visitors need a win to snatch first place from the Guild.

The Reserves lost 1-7 at home to Welling ParkRob Osborne scored the Guild's consolation goal.

The Fourth XI could not field a side at home to Centresports so the match was postponed.

The Third XI have finished their season.

Disciplinary and Match Day Fines

Every player that registers to play league/cup football for Farnborough Old Boys Guild (FOBG) agrees to abide by the rules of not only the club but of the league that they play in. As a result players will be responsible for the payment of any disciplinary fines arising during matches played.

Once a fine has been officially notified to the club the appropriate team manager and the player concerned will be notified by email and/or text msg. The player will then have 14 days to settle the balance with the club treasurer.
 
If payment is not made by the end of this period the player concerned will be asked to submit a written explanation to mailbox@fobgfc.org detailing why payment has not been made. This will be reviewed by the Management Committee at the next available monthly meeting and an appropriate decision will be made to resolve payment.
 
If no written explanation is provided by the player by the next available Committee meeting or the player persists in non-payment then the Management Committee will consider suspending the player from playing for FOBG until part or full payment has been received.
