This Saturday, Farnborough make the trip up to Oxfordshire to take on Evo-Stik League Southern Division One Central newcomers, Kidlington.
Farnborough will be disappointed not to have taken maximum points from their opening games, having missed numerous chances in a loss at Petersfield Town on Tuesday evening.
Spencer Day’s side suffered their first defeat of the Season in mid-week, narrowly losing 2-3 loss on a bobbly pitch at Petersfield Town, with new signing Jamie Cureton scoring for Boro’.
The Yellows also played a Friendly against Crystal Palace on Monday, going down 0-3 at Home to the Premier League giants.
Speaking to GetHampshire after Monday’s Friendly with Crystal Palace, Manager Spencer Day said: “It was a good night. We didn’t get any injuries, I thought we more than held our own in the first half when we had to put out a stronger team.
“I thought it was a credit to the Club. I thought we played some very good football, I think we more than matched them in the first half, had some good chances and two of the three goals were cracking efforts.
“We had five or six teenagers on the pitch as well and were even younger than them. It was a fabulous night for the Club, we’ve very pleased with how it’s gone.”
The Club can also confirm that Midfidler, Ryan Zidyana has joined Bedfont & Feltham on loan, while Academy Captain, Ethan Allen joins Badshot Lea on similar terms.
Goalkeeper, Jamie Cunningham has also been given dispensation to play for Frimley Green this weekend.
