Guild honoured by four call-ups
The First XI's excellent start to the season has been recognised by four players being called up to the Kent County League Representative squad for the match against the Hertfordshire League on 21 September.
Congratulations to Connor Blackman, Lee Friend, George Perfitt and Harry Tanner. Unfortunately Lee is still injured and will miss the match.
Our cup match at Bexley has been postponed until the following week, 28 September.
Get well soon Jamie!
We wish a speedy recovery to Fourth XI player Jamie Allen who underwent surgery on an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury he sustained while playing 5-a-side in July. He can't wait to get fit again, but faces up to 12 months rehab first.
Mitch in the wars!
Also on our injured list is Mitch Combstock, who suffered a bad cut to his head playing for the Sunday XI last weekend. He was taken to hospital to have a few stitches but felt fine apart from a slight headache!
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.

Jazz at the Guild

We regard training as essential; not just for fitness and player progression but for building team spirit, increasing tactical awareness and generally improving chances of on-pitch success.
During the season we have a club training session every Wednesday evening from 8pm-9pm at Bishop Justus School, Magpie Hall Lane, Bromley, Kent BR2 8HZ on a full size 3G pitch. Click HERE for a map.
Prospective new players are welcome to come along.
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.
