Semis here we come!

The 4ths reach a semi final for the first time ever??? In a hard fought game FOBG came from 2-1 behind at half-time to turn it around and beat a determined Sidcup team. After taking an early lead through a Rob Osborne header following a lovely floated free kick from Harry Tanner FOBG took their foot of the pedal and let Sidcup back into the game conceding 2 sloppy goals from free kicks where defenders did not run with their markers.

After some stirring words at half-time FOBG came out with more determination which paid off quickly with another headed goal, this time from Sam Bilsby following a lovely cross from Lloyd Mitchell. This galvanised FOBG and they took the lead following some good work from Danny Prendergast and a smart finish from Chris Thompson. FOBG then drug in and saw out the game not without some last ditch defending and a fine save from Jez Allen pushing the ball onto the bar following another good ball into the box from Sidcup.

So, another win and we remain the only unbeaten team in the whole of the BDFL!
