The Newcomers - Cameo 3. Farnborough FC

11 months ago By David Hamlet

Last season's Southern Central runners-up beat Barton Rovers 2-0 in the play-off final to gain promotion.

“Hopefully, Farnborough's financial woes can now be archived and the club can look forward to a brighter future. They were the best supported team in the Central division last term.”

The Hampshire club play at the Rushmoor Community Stadium (cap 7,000) - just 21 miles from Arbour Park.
Club colours: yellow & blue; change strip: all white
