Pam Shoebridge - funeral arrangements

We are very sorry to report that Pam Shoebridge passed away on 10 March at the age of 83.

Pam has been associated with the Guild for over 50 years, being married to Eric, who played for the club from the late 1960's to the early 1990's, and mother of Ian and Andy who both served the club well from the 1980's onwards. For several years in the 2000's and 2010's she was the "Catering Queen" for the Senior Vets, providing much appreciated refreshments after home matches.

Our thoughts are with her family and friends at this sad time.

Funeral arrangements are as follows. Details are on the Muchloved page for Pam where you can donate and/or leave a tribute.by clicking/tapping HERE.

Pam's funeral will take place at Bluebell Cemetery, Old London Road, Halstead, Sevenoaks TN14 7AE on the 25th of April 2023 at 11:15 am.

Flowers from immediate family only.  Donations welcome at St Christopher's Hospice.

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.
