Farnborough Camp

A defeat for Boro’ last time out and a win for Brentwood Town in mid-week saw Farnborough drop to 22nd place in the Ryman League Premier Division.

The Yellows suffered a disappointing 0-3 Home defeat to the current Ryman League Premier Division League leaders on Monday evening, leaving Farnborough seven points adrift of safety.

Manager, Spencer Day bolstered his squad in mid-week by securing long-term signings of experience duo, Terrell Forbes and Dennis Oli from National League South side Hemel Hempstead Town.

Day also managed to extend the loan deal of current top scorer, Bogdan Vastsuk from Sky Bet Championship side Reading.

Speaking after Mondays Home defeat to East Thurrock United, Farnborough boss Spencer Day told GetHampshire: “It was a shame because we were in the game at the start of the second half but we’ve gifted it away with two very soft set-piece goals.

“But we weren’t disgraced, we were just beaten by the better team overall.”

Farnborough last time out (vs East Thurrock United): Aaron Bufton (gk), John Oyenuga, Jack Barton, Josh Gallagher, CJ Fearn (Capt), Jack Smith, Andrew Jenkinson, Charlie Allen, Matthew Barnes-Homer, Bogdan Vastsuk, George Hallahan, Usman Adeniji, Harry Knight, Ryan Zidyana and Melvin Minter (gk).
