First XI's Cup Final Postponed
The 2019-20 Kent Intermediate Challenge Shield Final scheduled for Friday 30 October betwen our First XI and Metrogas has been postponed.
Following is a statement from the Kent County FA's Football Service Officer Competitions, Matt Dixon:
"Following continued rises in coronavirus cases and the new tiered lockdowns being put in place, we are unable to offer the finalists the full cup final package that they deserve.
"We are restricted by the government/FA on ground capacity and clubhouses, team sheets cannot be exchanged, the presentation is very much watered down, whilst the use of changing facilities and showers remains prohibited.
"With this in mind a decision has been made to postpone the Intermediate Challenge Shield and look to play it in April/May 2021 when hopefully some of the current restrictions have been lifted, allowing us to put on our usual high standard spectacle cup final."
We are in COVID Tier 2
We are under COVID Tier 2 regulations as we fall into the London geographical area.
Under this "high" alert level, there is a ban on households mixing indoors, including in pubs and restaurants.
So although we can continue to host matches, we cannot offer any indoor hospitality to either visitors or home teams.
We have limited space outdoors for home teams and officials only.

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.
