BSLFL Fixtures Released
The Bromley and South London Football League have issued their fixtures for the remainder of the season. These are now on the club website for the Third and Fourth XIs.
Crofton Albion have withdrawn from Division Two for this season, meaning that the Fourth XI's win against them has been expunged. Our league table has been updated to reflect this.
With the termination of the Kent County League and the Selkent League, this means that all league fixtures are now set for the remainder of the season.
Kent County League 2020-21 is Null and Void
At the Special General Meeting of member clubs of the NRG 24hr Gym Kent County League on 17 March, the clubs voted in favour of making the current season null and void. With a two-thirds majority required to finish the season, 46% of clubs voted to play the season to a conclusion, 42% voted for the null and void option, with 12% abstaining. So the season is terminated with immediate effect, including cup competitions.
This outcome is bitterly disappointing for FOBG, with the First XI, led by Luke Johnson, in the county title race for the first time in the history of the club and with Nick Pitt in his final season as manager of the Reserves, who have also been performing well.
The 2021-22 KCL season will begin for all divisions on Saturday 14 August.
The Bromley and South London Football League clubs have voted in favour of playing the league season to its conclusion, finishing by the end of May, with all cups cancelled.
The Orpington, Bromley and District Sunday Football League have made a similar decision, with cup matches still in doubt. Fixtures have already been re-issued for this competition.
Games in both leagues will resume the weekend of 3/4 April.
The Selkent League has already decided to cancel its league season, with the clubs competing in shield competitions until the end of May.
Both our Vets teams will resume fixtures on the weekend of 3/4 April.

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.
