5-Star Friend Fires Firsts!
The First XI started their league campaign in scintillating style with a 7-1 win away to Hawkinge Town. Lee Friend led the way with five goals, with Tom Beckingham and Paul Lee also contributing to the goals tally. The result equals our biggest ever win in the Premier Division.
The Firsts play hosts to Fleetdown United on Wednesday evening.
Elsewhere our five other adult league sides all won their friendly matches.
Summer Soccer Academy a great success!
Our Summer Soccer Academy was attended by an average of 14 players per day despite some very dodgy weather conditions!
All got great enjoyment out of it, players and coaches alike!
The regular Saturday morning sessions will resume on 7 September.

FA CHARTER STANDARD
FOBG has held FA Charter Standard Adult Club status for several years now. This is official recognition by the Football Association given to non-league clubs that have demonstrated that they are well run and sustainable. It also recognises the club's commitment to coaching, player and coach development, and the raising of standards of behaviour in the game.
The benefits of having Charter Standard status include:
- Use of the FA Charter Standard Logo
- Enhancement of funding applications and bids
- Kit and equipment grants from the Football Foundation
- Exclusive workshops
- Starter pack, including posters, codes of conduct, certificates
This represents a major step forward in the development of Farnborough OBG FC and illustrates the ambitions of the club to develop further both on and off the field.
Many thanks to Malcolm Poynter for his hard work in achieving this recognition for the club.More information regarding FA Charter Standard status.
