Presentation Night 2022
Our annual Club Presentation Evening took place last Saturday in the clubhouse lounge at Farrow Fields.
The evening was well supported with seven out of our eight senior teams in attendance with only the Senior Vets not being represented.
As the clubs’ President, Ian Couchman, was away for the weekend, it fell to club Chairman Danny Saines to take on the role of compere. Couch has being doing it for forty years so it was nice to have a change(!)
Club Photographer Colin Brazier was also not available so the camera was passed onto club Officer Paul Parsons, who slotted in to the David Bailey role with ease. Please feel free to Google the reference if you are under the age of fifty, lol.
All engraving and trophies were organised by Danny Saines with thanks, and supplied by Supreme Engraving.
Last but not least our fantastic bar staff again worked really hard all night keeping the shots going throughout

Megan Glen Skydived for Sands!!!
Megan Glen, wife of our social media man Jordan, made her 10,000ft skydive at Headcorn aerodrome on 29 May in aid of Sands, the stillbirth and neonatal death charity.

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.
