FARNBOROUGH OLD BOYS GUILD FC NEED YOUR HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Kent Football League side, Farnborough Old Boys Guild were crowned Champions of the Kent County League One at the weekend, with victory over Peckham Town in the season’s grand finale. Since Saturdays dramatic win, the FA have confirmed that unless the club update their changing facilities over the next two months, the club, players and fans will not be rewarded for their hard work this season with promotion into the Kent Premier League. We currently have communal showering facilities and the FA rules state that we need separate showers servicing each individual changing room, along with a separate WC’s for players and spectators. We had the FA up the club last night and they have confirmed that we need to partition off a metre run in the existing changing room to accommodate three new showers and a toilet. We also need to put a WC in the referees changing room.
The necessary refurbishment we will require a new boiler, six new shower heads, three new toilets, new flooring and materials for plastering, electrics and plumbing. We are a ‘not for profit’ organisation, so are looking to raised funds to help this wonderful club achieve what they so richly deserve.
We have our own ground, located in the centre of Farnborough village, between Bromley and Orpington. FOBG is a very friendly yet ambitious football club who run four senior Saturday teams which all play competitive league football, and four Sunday teams: two senior, playing league football and two Vets (over 35) teams which each play around 30 friendly fixtures per season.
Your contribution will allow us the opportunity to complete these fundamental clubhouse improvements, so not only the 1st XI can secure promotion, but every one of the 120 playing members will have the chance to enjoy the new facilities come the new season.
Thanks again for your contribution, we truly do appreciate it. Please keep updated on our progress via our website http://www.fobgfc.org/ and via twitter @fobgfc
