Weekend Round-up: 26/27 November

The First XI suffered by far their heaviest defeat of the season when local rivals Orpington beat them 5-1 at Goddington in the league. George Osman got the Guild's consolation goal.

By way of a contrast, the Second XI toppled previously unbeaten Crofton Albion 2-1 at Farrow Fields, also in a league game. TJ Kode and Jack Hollidge were on target.

The Sunday XI won their fifth consecutive match, 2-1 against Croydon-based Bosjam at Purley Way in the London Sunday Trophy. Dekklund Wallace and Steve Townsend got the goals for FOBG.

The Vets' unbeaten record came to an end away to Toby Vets with a 4-1 defeat. Gary Harrigan continued his good form with a goal. According to player/manager Damien Preston, the result wasn't unjust: "We weren't at the races today, especially in the first half. We were much the better side in the second half but couldn't convert our chances. Hats off to their keeper who made some crucial saves."

The Senior Vets won 8-1 away to Beckenham Vets. Player/manager George Kleanthous reported that is was a closer match than the score suggests and that his side's clinical finishing was the difference. Jack Loizou hit three, Landy Sakala two with Chisa Mkala and Aaron McWilliams getting one apiece. There was also an own goal, the team's sixth highest scorer this season with five!

The Colts' Kent Under 15 Boys Cup campaign ended at the hands of K Sports in Maidstone. A missed penalty and an individual error for the decisive extra-time goal were the vital factors in the 2-1 defeat.

The Under 13s recovered well from last week's heavy cup defeat to beat Beckenham Town Green 3-1 in the league at Farrow Fields. Ollie Gain got his first compeititve goals for the club, with Tyler Nicholas also on the scoresheet.

Junior Section Christmas Party

The Guild's junior section enjoyed its Christmas party on Friday, raising £370 for club charity Living On in the process. Over 100 people attended, close to the club's capacity.

FOBG Sunday Reserves

It is with great regret that we have had to withdraw our Sunday Reserves team from competition.

Manager Danny Mann tried all avenues to keep the side together; however, a number of long term injuries, coupled with players leaving after the start of the season, left us with no alternative.

We would like to thank the officers of the Orpington, Bromley and District Sunday Football League for their understanding, giving us time to regroup and address the situation, but unfortunately to no avail.
