NEWS

Get well soon Steve!

Steve Dalsan, former Guild player and First XI manager, suffered a cardiac arrest on Good Friday. He had a stent fitted and went home, but a couple of days later he had another turn and was admitted back into hospital. He is now back home.

Our best wishes to Steve for a full and speedy recovery.

BARNESTORMER! Alex's 93rd minute header gives Sunday XI the cup!

The winning goalCongratulations to Vince Wray and the Sunday XI on winning the OBDSFL Jack Standen Cup.

They beat Ex Blues 1-0 at Bromley FC on Sunday, the goal coming from substitute Alex Barnes with a looping header in injury time.

Rest of Sunday round-up

The Sunday Reserves won 3-1 at home to Kingsdale Reserves in the league. Lee Friend, Kevin Lott and Luke Distin scored for FOBG.

The Vets lost 3-2 at home to Metrogas Vets, goals from Jez Mooney and Jason Miller not quite enough to recover a 3-0 half-time deficit.

The Senior Vets beat Wellcome Super Vets 5-1 at Norman Park.  Kypros Michael and Peter Harvey both scored twice, with Des Lindsay also finding the net.

Saturday round-up

Four league matches this week, with mixed results...

The First XI went down 5-2 at home to Bexley.  Malachi Robinson and Jourdan Howard were on target for the Guild.

The Reserves lost 7-4 away to Welling Town. Dan Martin scored twice, with Grant Kelsey and Nick Pitt also on the scoresheet.

The Third XI beat Seven Acre Sports 3-0 at Farrow Fields, Russell Leigh grabbing two goals, Nick Stannard the other.

The Fourth XI drew 2-2 away to Dulwich Village Reserves, squandering a last-minute penalty.

Support the Guild in the Fourth XI's cup final!

This Thursday, 27 April the Fourth XI take on Centresports in the final of the Ron Pope Cup, the Bromley League's flagship cup competition.  This game is at Beckenham Town FC, kicking off at 7pm.

We hope to see plenty of supporters at the game to cheer the Guild on!

Help Chris Viner help a great cause!

Chris Viner, son of Steve and Sara, is running the London Marathon on behalf of The City and East London Bereavement Service, who offer bereavement counselling to residents of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets.  

This is a fantastic cause; any contribution would be much appreciated by both Chris and the charity.

You can donate at Chris' page HERE.  The page will remain open for donations for some time after the event.

He has two targets: to raise £1,500, and (less importantly) to break the three-hour mark for the 26 miles.

Help required!!!

We will need people to help out on Saturdays throughout April, as Steve and/or Couch will be away each week.

If you can spare an hour or two it would be much appreciated; it would be good if some players and/or managers of home teams can arrive an hour earlier than they would normally.

Hall Photos Required

We need photos of the clubhouse looking its best for functions to put on the club's website.  If you have any good pre-function photos please email them to the club.

Hall, kitchen, bar, buffet room, patio etc pics all useful!

Vets players wanted

We are looking for new players for our younger Vets side, who play friendly matches on Sunday mornings.

If you are 35 or over and would like to know more, please email the club

TRAINING

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.

We have open club training sessions every week on floodlit artificial surfaces.

Current players: see your team manager for information; their details are on the team pages on this website.

New players are welcome; please contact the club for details of sessions.

FA CHARTER STANDARD

FA Charter Standard Information 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.

  • 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.
