NEWS

In support of Mike Cole

Mike ColeSadly, we received the news recently that Saturday and Sunday Reserves captain Mike Cole has been diagnosed with skin cancer. 

"Coley" is only in his third season with FOBG but has already established himself as a firm favourite with his team mates and around the club. He captained the Sunday Reserves to their Jack Standen Cup Final win against Blendon in September having already picked up a Kent Sunday Junior Trophy winners' medal in 2019.

Everyone at the Guild wishes Mike the strength to make a full recovery. The fight he gives in every match will stand him in good stead in this battle.

Kevin Lott has set up a GoFundMe page to help Mike pay his bills while he is off work. You can read more HERE.

Summer Trials for Under 14 Players

We have partnered with Living On

We are pleased to announce that Bromley-based Living On have become the official charity partner of our Saturday morning Academy. They are a local charity doing amazing work with bereaved families. We as a club will be putting on charity games for them to raise money, but also offering practical help by having families referred to ourselves each week to help support the children and their parents with organised sporting activities.
 
Academy head coach Luke Johnson told us:
 
“Living On have volunteers working tirelessly with families at their darkest and most vulnerable times. They are truly dedicated individuals who work on a very small donations. I am incredibly proud to call them our charity partner and hope we can work side by side for many years to help these families in any small way we can”.
 
Karen Chapman, Lead Family Support Worker for Living On, said:
 
“I was so thrilled to hear about Living On being the club's charity of the year but also the practical offer of a space for any of our children on your Saturday morning football session. Thank you for all that you are thinking of and offering us a charity”.

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.
