There are no fixtures scheduled this week
It is with great sadness that we bring you the news that former FOBG player Chris Alder has passed away suddenly at the age of 57.
Chris was a gifted player who represented the First XI in several positions in the 1980's and has always remained a friend of the Guild.
We send heartfelt condolences to his wife Wendy and daughters Hayley, Hannah and Holly.
Funeral details to follow.

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.
