Elvis returns!


Saturday 30 September 2023 sees the return of Elvis Presley to FOBG! 

A truly fantastic evening, tickets (£12) are available HERE.

We can now finally unveil our new junior team!!

The club would like to welcome the managers, players, and parents of the new Under 8s.

Born of out Luke Johnson's Saturday morning Soccer School, the team will be managed by Jack Kehoe, Kristian Baker and Jonathan Excell.

The team will be playing in the Selkent League D Navy Division and kick off their season this coming Sunday at home to NWK Rangers with a 1pm kick off. Please come along and show your support!

Everyone has worked really hard over the past three months to get this team off the ground. A huge amount of administrative preparation has been done to bring the team to this stage and the club would like to thank the managers for their commitment, and to Danny Saines, Paul Raggett, Adam Dannatt, and Neil Pearce for all their hard work behind the scenes.

Good luck all and welcome to the Guild Family!

N.B. Unfortunately FA guidelines for junior football prevent us reporting their results but we will post all their fixtures on the club website when our webmaster has made the necessary changes (shouldn't be long!).

Summer Changes at FOBG

You might have noticed one or two changes in the list of teams at the club.  Here's a quick run-through:


First XI: Not much change here! Manager Paul Eddleston begins his thirtieth season as a Guild manager as his team look to build on a stunning end to the last campaign and mount a promotion challenge out of the Kent County League Division Two West.

Second XIJez Allen begins his eleventh full season as player/manager, the aim being to consolidate in the Bromley and South London's top echelon, the John Cooper Premier Division, after promotion as runners-up in the Jim Hampson First Division last term.

Saturday Vets: For the first time we are fielding a Saturday vets side. The squad consists predominantly of ex-FOBG players and is player/managed by Ben Tomkins. The team will play competitively in the Southern Veterans Football League Division 7. 


Sunday XI: Vince Wray starts his 16th season as the Sunday XI manager. The team will again compete at the top level of the Orpington, Bromley and District Sunday Football League, although the division has been renamed the Premier Division from the Senior Division.

Vets: Recently the age distinction between the Vets and Senior Vets has become blurred to such an extent that they have been renamed Red and Yellow Vets respectively. The Red Vets will continue to be player/managed by Damien Preston with George Kleanthous performing the same role with the Yellow Vets. Both sides will play friendly matches, with the Yellows also competing in the Queen Elizabeth II invitational cup.

Juniors: The Colts have reached Under 16 level now, and have left the Kent County League for the Selkent League Division U16A. They will continue to be managed by Paul Raggett, assisted by Adam Dannatt.  The Under 13s played a year above their level last season and have been accepted into the Kent County League Division U13 Central, coming up against teams from many of the top non-league outfits in Kent. Michael Clark will again take the managerial reins, assisted by Seb Favata after Mark Girling stood down. The Under 11s will also play in the Selkent League, although we will again be prevented on reporting their progress by FA regulations. The management team will again be Neil Pearce, Jon Gasson and Paul Embleton.

Finally, as we have no Sunday Reserve team this season, we have rented a pitch for 2023-24 to Woodside FC, who are in OBDSFL Division Two. Their fixtures will be shown on the club website to help with pitch planning and availability.

Good luck to all teams for the season!
