NEWS

Fourths well beaten in Ron Pope Cup final

The Fourth XI put up a great fight against a classy Centresports outfit at Beckenham Town, but ran out of steam in the closing stages when they conceded the last three goals.

Thanks to the many supporters who made it along to the game, and also to those who supported the Sunday XI at Bromley FC last week.

Get well soon Steve!

Steve Dalsan, former Guild player and First XI manager, suffered a cardiac arrest on Good Friday. He had a stent fitted and went home, but a couple of days later he had another turn and was admitted back into hospital. He is now back home.

Our best wishes to Steve for a full and speedy recovery.

BARNESTORMER! Alex's 93rd minute header gives Sunday XI the cup!

The winning goalCongratulations to Vince Wray and the Sunday XI on winning the OBDSFL Jack Standen Cup.

They beat Ex Blues 1-0 at Bromley FC on Sunday, the goal coming from substitute Alex Barnes with a looping header in injury time.

Curry night Tuesday 16 May

Patrice Mongelard is organising a club curry night at the Village Cuisine on Tuesday 16 May, 7.30pm for 8pm.

This is always a terrific sell-out evening.  You can book your place by emailing Pat at patricemongelard@hotmail.co.uk; the price will be £20, of which £9 will go to the Guild.

Pat has agreed a terrific menu which you can download HERE.

Help Chris Viner help a great cause!

Chris Viner, son of Steve and Sara, ran a fantastic time of 2 hours 52 minutes in the London Marathon on Sunday.

Chris ran on behalf of The City and East London Bereavement Service, who offer bereavement counselling to residents of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.  

This is a fantastic cause; any contribution would be much appreciated by both Chris and the charity.

You can still donate at Chris' page HERE.  The page will remain open for donations for some time after the event.

He has two targets: to raise £1,500, and (less importantly) to break the three-hour mark for the 26 miles. One down, one to go!

Help required!!!

We will need people to help out on the first two Saturdays in May, as we have three home games scheduled.

Friday Night is Jazz Night!
We have high quality live jazz every Friday night at Farrow Fields. Click on the poster to see who's playing.

TRAINING

We regard training as essential; not just for fitness and player progression but for building team spirit, increasing tactical awareness and generally improving chances of on-pitch success.

We have open club training sessions every week on floodlit artificial surfaces.

Current players: see your team manager for information; their details are on the team pages on this website.

New players are welcome; please contact the club for details of sessions.

FA CHARTER STANDARD

FA Charter Standard Information 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.
