Patio furniture wanted

We are looking to replace the club's patio tables and chairs which are looking past their best, to say the least!

If anyone is willing to donate unwanted - or even wanted! - garden furniture in decent condition please email the club, we'd really appreciate it.

Weekend round-up

The First XI progressed to the Sevenoaks Charity Cup (Senior Section) semi-finals with a win on penalties away to Otford United.  The match was locked 1-1 after extra time, Lamar Myers scoring for the Guild. 

The Reserves drew 3-3 at home to Halls AFC Reserves in a league match. Rob Osborne, Scott Barnes and Tommy Noad (all ex-Fourth XI players by the way!) got on the scoresheet.

The Third XI played on the top pitch at Farrow Fields, the first time it has been playable in a while, but went down 2-1 to West Bromley Albion in the league. The Guild scorer was James Cheshire.

The Fourth XI, severely depleted by injury and unavailability, were beaten 3-0 away to River Plate in a Bromley League match.

On Sunday two games were rained off, the Sunday XI's home match with Freelands, and the Young Vets' away match with Avery Hill Vets.

The remaining two games both ended with 5-0 defeats, for the Sunday Reserves away to Hayden Youth Association in the league, and the Senior Vets' against Sanco Super Vets, played on an excellent surface at Catford Wanderers Club.  Ex-Guild player Paul Burford scored a hat-trick from midfield.

Our remaining home games

You may have noticed a new "Home Games" option in the menu.  This is a visual aid to show how many matches are scheduled on our two pitches for the rest of the season.

At present you will see that we are pretty much running at capacity, where we will need to double up home games or play evening matches later in the 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 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.
