After Lockdown: we are in COVID Tier 2
From Thursday 3 December we are under COVID Tier 2 regulations as we fall into the London geographical area.
Under this "high" alert level, there is a ban on households mixing indoors, including in pubs and restaurants.
So although we can continue to host matches, we cannot offer any indoor hospitality to either visitors or home teams.
We have limited space outdoors for home teams and officials only.
Football Resumption after Lockdown
Grassroots football can be played at the end of lockdown from Thursday December 3.
The Kent County League have announced that competitive fixtures will resume on 12 December, allowing clubs to fit in training or a friendly in the preceding week. As Kent is in Tier 3 and travel may be restricted, the league has promised to make a statement as soon as they have the relevant information. Of the 16 clubs in the Premier Division, 11 are in Tier 3 and 5 (including the First XI) are in Tier 2.
Division Three West, in which our Reserves compete, is comprised of teams entirely within Tier 2 with the exception of Greenways, who are based in Gravesend.
The Bromley and South London Football League are resuming competitive action on 5 December; both our Third XI and Fourth XI have matches that day.
The Orpington, Bromley and District Sunday Football League plan to resume on 6 December but are still to announce fixtures.
Both Vets and Senior Vets fixtures up until Christmas are entirely within Tier 2 so can go ahead.
Try our Refereeing Quiz!
Not much going on in terms of match action, for obvious reasons, so now is an ideal time to try our new Refereeing Quiz. Don't worry, handball and VAR are both excluded!

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.
