Farnborough Football Club is the re-birth of Farnborough Town FC that was liquidated on 25 July 2007. 

Farnborough Football Club started life in season 2007/08 in the Southern League Division One South & West and it was a season that turned to glory as the club won the Championship and with it promotion to the Southern League Premier Division. The League title was secured under manager Andy Clement with 89 points and an impressive 120 goals being scored in the process that underlined a fantastic achievement for the club’s new beginnings.

Farnborough’s Cherrywood Road ground had a large face-lift and investment was being put into a number of areas under the leadership of former Chairman Simon Hollis and the Board of Directors.

Historical financial debt problems inevitably left the manager with no choice but to implement a reduced player budget in season 2014/15. The consequences of this long-term handicap finally came home to roost when Boro finished 20th in the Vanarama Conference South suffering relegation to the Isthmian Premier League, and a further relegation the following season. A re-defining of the league’s geographical borders also resulted in a sideways move to the Southern League. Off the pitch, things were beginning to look a little brighter, thanks to the hard work of the owners and the club was debt free for the first time in many years!

The Yellows reached the playoff final in the 2016/17 season. In front of 1000-plus Boro supporters, the Yellows secured a nervous, but comfortable 2-0 victory over Barton Rovers to signify their return to the Southern Premier League.

After the null-and-void seasons of 2019/20 and 2020/21, the Yellows tasted playoff success again in 2022. Hayes and Yeading were the opponents in the final when a 2-1 win secured promotion back to step 2, the National League South.

In their first season back in the National League South last season, Farnborough finished in a respectable 10th place.



The Yellows are sat in midtable in 12th and are outsiders for the playoffs, with the side currently seven points off away from 7th place.

They have picked up back-to-back wins against Bath City and Welling United ahead of their trip to the South Coast to take on the Rebels.

The Gaffer

Spencer Day has been in charge at Farnborough for more than 12 years having been appointed as manager back in November 2011.


Joined Farnborough in November 2011 and oversaw a turnaround fortunes securing the Club’s status in the Conference South in the following three seasons. After two relegations, mainly due to off-field issues, successfully gained promotion to The Southern League Premier Division in 2016/17 through the Play-Offs after finishing the season a comfortable second.

After successfully navigating the COVID-19 pandemic, Day guided the team to promotion back to Step Two last season with victory in The Southern League Premier South Play-Off Final, having spent virtually all season at the top of the division.

Known for his relentless work behind the scenes, furnishing the players with all they need to know about each opponent, Spencer, working closely with the Club Owner, has brought a period of stability and success to Farnborough.
