Depleted Firsts beaten at Peckham

A First XI shorn of several regulars put in a good performance in losing 0-3 to Peckham Town at Pyners Field in a league match on Monday.


Sunday round-up

The Sunday XI lost 1-2 away to St Germain's in a pre-season friendly.  Mitch Rowe scored for FOBG.

The Sunday Reserves drew 1-1 at Orpington Rovers in a friendly.  Russ Nethercot scored for the Guild.

The Young Vets start their season next Sunday.

The Senior Vets opened their campaign as usual with a match against a strong Orpington Vets outfit, and were beaten 6-3 at Norman Park.  Waine Hetherington, Stephane Anelli and a Des Lindsay penalty featured on the FOBG scoresheet.


Saturday round-up

The First XI went down 1-4 at Greenways.  Alex Barnes gave the Guild a 5th-minute lead but a late collapse saw us concede 4 goals in the last 20 minutes.
 
The Reserves opened their league campaign with a 1-1 draw away to AFC Halls Reserves.  Kane Hoadley scored for FOBG. 
 
The Third XI had a free weekend.
 
The Fourth XI lost 2-4 against River Plate in a friendly.  Nick Pitt and Dec Wallace netted for Farnborough.

URGENT: Vets keeper required

FOBG Senior Vets are looking for an experienced keeper age ideally 40+ who can play regularly on Sunday mornings. We have have 38 games scheduled for the coming season and the best part of being a keeper is you are guaranteed 90 minutes play.

Anybody interested please contact Roger French by email via the website mail address or direct using contact details shown on Senior Vets page.


SLA league formation announced

The SLA will operate just two divisions, Premier and Division 1, this season.  The Guild's Third XI will compete in Division 1 along with the following teams: Black Horse, Danson Sports, Eltham Town, Croydon BR Reserves, Bexlians 3rd, AFC Lewisham, Iron Tugboat City, Johnson & Phillips Reserves, London Borough, Old Bromleians Reserves, Old Colfeians, Seven Acre Sports and Shirley Town.


Vets Summer Training

Vets summer training will continue at Tugmutton Common as the surface at Tubbenden Rec is not exactly ideal. The clubhouse will be open for beers after training.

This session is open to anybody interested in getting back up to "speed" before the season starts and will consist of a 3-touch game rather than any strenuous exercises. Senior Vets fixtures start on 28th August with the Vets XI getting under way on 4th September so it makes sense for current squad members to get involved.
