Situated in the centre of Farnborough village, between the more populous areas of Bromley and Orpington, FOBG is a very friendly yet ambitious football club.
The club is well established, founded in 1932, and has a large clubhouse and two excellent pitches.
The Saturday First XI play in the NRG 24HR Gym Kent County League (Division Two West). The Second XI competes in the top echelon (John Cooper Premier Division) of the Bromley and South London Football League.
We now have just one Sunday XI in the Orpington, Bromley and District Sunday Football League (OBDSFL). They have been established in the topmost (Premier) division for several years now.
We also run three Vets (aged 35+) sides. The Saturday Vets play competitive football in the Southern Veterans Football League Division 7, while the two Sunday Vets sides ("Red" and "Yellow") play 30+ friendlies each per season. They were formerly known as Young Vets and Senior Vets respectively; however the age difference has disappeared in recent years!
We now have a thriving junior section. We have an Under 16s team, the Colts, who play in the Selkent Football League Division U16A, an Under 13s team playing in the Kent Youth League Division U13 Central, and two teams (Under 11s and Under 8s) registered with the Selkent League but who do not play competitively.
The club's organisation is second to none for its size, with a dedicated, hard working committee, and a weekly emailed newsletter.
