Weekend round-up: two great cup wins and Simon Thomas' 50th goal
The First XI put in one of their best performances of the season in defeat away to league leaders Staplehurst Monarchs United. Lee Friend scored both FOBG goals as we finished on the wrong end of a 3-2 scoreline.
The Reserves kept up their fine league form with a 2-1 home success against Bromleians Reserves, Eddie Figg and Matt Edmonton finding the net.
In Bromley and South London league matches, the Third XI lost 3-0 at home to Russellers, and the Fourth XI were beaten 4-1 away at leaders Eden Park, Ali Brown the Guild scorer.
The Sunday XI lost 3-0 away to AFC Kumazi Strikers in the league.
The result of the weekend was shared between the Sunday Reserves and Under 12 Colts.

The opponents in the quarter-finals are another Senior division outfit FC Bickley (away).
The Colts also went through to cup quarter-finals (Under 12 Selkent Cup One) with a 3-2 home success against Beacons White. Ronnie Prince hit a brace with Finley Williams also on target.

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.
