In support of Mike Cole
Sadly, 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.

We will be holding summer trials for next season's Colts squad, which will be an Under 14 side next season.

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.
