Tony Jordan 1931-2021

Tony was a tremendous servant to the Guild.

He joined the club in 1949 when he was 18, although he first played for us at the age of 15, in 1946. He had an 18-month break from the Guild around 1950 when he completed his National Service in the Royal Fusiliers and was stationed at the Tower of London.

He played for the First XI from the early 50s until the mid-60s captaining the side during this period. Tony played mainly on the right wing or as centre forward. In the mid-50s he also played for Bromley Town reserves for 18 months and was absent from the country for the 1956-57 season while working for a mining company in what was then Rhodesia.

He was club President for just over twenty years from 1984 to 2005, as well as club Treasurer for fourteen years between 1962 and 1976. In 1963 he was awarded the President’s Salver, presented to the club member who has best served the club.

As club Treasurer he was closely involved in the successful negotiations with Bromley Council to lease land for our move to Farnborough Village from Tugmutton Recreation Ground in the 70s.  As Club President, along with Dave Edwards, he did much hard work in negotiating the plans for our clubhouse and in raising funds for its construction.

By the time he stopped playing football for the club in 1973 his record stood at 401 appearances and 151 goals scored.  He also played cricket for the Guild and was a very good golfer.

Tony passed away on 19 August 2021.

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.
