Welcome to the website of Farnborough Old Boys Guild Football Club, founded in 1932 and affiliated to the Kent County FA.
We hope you enjoy your visit.
Good advice and an appreciative message echoed by all at FOBG come from one of our more senior supporters, 85-year-young Queenie Willison!
Our season expunged!
All football in England below the three divisions that make up the National League will end immediately and all results will be expunged. It means there will be no promotion or relegation in these leagues.
The Kent County League and Bromley and South London League have followed the FA guidelines and curtailed their seasons. The Sunday OBDSFL and Selkent leagues are expected to follow suit.
So all league tables will be officially wiped, however we will leave them as they are on this website as a matter of record.
On course for our best season in our history, but bigger things are happening and the most important thing is the health of all.
Academy, jazz suspended
Neither the Saturday morning football academy sessions nor the Friday night jazz will be operating until further notice.
Our Social Media
As well as our website, we have an official presence on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube and Twitter. In addition, most of our nine teams have their own Twitter accounts.
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.
