  The Season So Far

Farnborough kicked off their season with a 2-1 defeat away to Hereford, followed by another loss, this time to Stevenage 0-1 at home. The next two home games saw them beat Halifax 3-0 and Dagenham & Redbridge 1-0 and Saturday saw a 1-1 draw with Scarborough.

Luckily we're playing at home though, Boro's away record isn't quite so impressive with no wins so far and only one goal scored on their travels and that was on the opening day. Doncaster (0-1), Yeovil (0-2) and Southport (0-0) being the other games.

Barnet just can't seem to be able to put two decent results together at the moment. Another defeat, this time 4-2 away to Leigh RMI sees them drop to 8th place.

History

Farnborough Played their first game in the Surrey Senior League in 1968. They stayed in this league for four seasons playing at the Queens Road Recreation Ground.

They then moved to the Spartan League, winning it for the next four years.

IIn the mid-seventies they moved to Cherrywood Road and in 1976/77 they won the Athenian League Division 2. The next season they joined the Isthmian League and won Division 2 in 78/79.

Between 27th August 1973 and 23rd April 1977 Farnborough didn't lose a single game at home, a total of 87 on the trot.

After six seasons in Division one of the Isthmian they finally won the league and promotion to the Premier Division.

In 1989/90 they joined the Conference after finishing runners up the previous season to Leytonstone & Ilford, who's ground wasn't up to standard.They only lasted a season and went down to the Southern League, bouncing straight up again. 1991/92 saw the Boro finish 5th, their highest ever placing. Another year on and it's relegation time once more.

At the end of the 92/93 season Ted Pearce, the Manager for 23 years, stood down. His replacement was his assistant Alan Taylor and in his first year took them to the Championship and back to the Conference, this time for five years.

In 1998/99 problems on and off the pitch and with several Manager changes sees them drop down a lleague again. This time it's to the Isthmiam, but two seasons ago sees them again as Champions and take their place in the Conference, ending their first season in 7th place.
