What a year 2022 turned out to be! Promotion to The Vanarama National League South and winning the Hampshire Senior Cup. A double winning season that will be added to the history books of our great club.

The first half of this season has seen the club enjoy a superb FA Cup run, which finally came to an end on the road with defeat away to National League Wrexham in the Second Round Proper. Wins against Hayes & Yeading United, Swindon Supermarine, Biggleswade Town and League Two Sutton United gave us all some great days out and memories to be proud of.

Thank you to all our players, led by Spencer and his management team, who have continued to work hard throughout 2022. You are all incredibly dedicated. The team spirit, drive for success and talent is on show every game. Well done lads, here’s to a successful 2023!

What a year to remember for our growing yellow and blue army of supporters, to visit both Sutton United and Wrexham and make more noise than the home clubs prove you are by far the best supporters in the League, in my opinion. Your support gives us the twelfth man every time we play. Thank you!

Farnborough is a club on the up. Both on and off the pitch and the amount of hard work that goes on behind the scenes is incredible. A special mention to Vice-Chairman Kevin Dyer who continues to work endlessly day in, day out, carrying out job’s unseen by many, but noticed by the club. Kevin leads a strong team of volunteers and together they ensure the upkeep and maintenance of the Stadium.

2022 has seen some new faces join the club and we welcome Duncan Saunders, Lorraine Buckley and Sam Saunders, as well as Ben Shoveller and Andy Smart who bring knowledge, experience and enthusiasm behind the scenes and on Match Day’s. We hope you have enjoyed your start with the club!
