The LOBFC have made a strong start to the season for many reasons. The 1st team currently sit third in the table and are looking to continue their form into the new year in search of promotion. The 2nd team have recruited lots of new players and it has been great to see so many players who are still at school or from university turn out for both sides. The annual fixture against the College was held on Saturday 16 November and was hugely enjoyed by the 1s, 2s and the LOBFC Vets side. The College 1st XI played some terrific football and managed the best result against the LOBFC 1st XI in recent memory. Although this was a 3-2 loss for the school lads they can hold their heads high, with the expansive style of play and energy they showed. Marvin Yang (pictured) won the Ken Shearwood MOM trophy after a scintillating display down the right wing. The 2nd XI fought to a 2-2 draw before the match was decided by a penalty shoot-out, LOBFC holding their nerve to win. The 3rd XI school side faced our Vets and again did themselves proud in a tightly-fought game that ended in a 3-2 win for LOBFC. As always it was a great day out, and there is some real optimism about the future of OL football.
The Annual OL Sports Dinner, hosted by the LOBFC will take place on 27 March 2020 at the Oval Cricket Ground. BOOK YOUR TICKETS NOW.
