Farnborough Football Club, nicknamed “Boro,” is a non-league football club based in Farnborough, Hampshire.

Established in 2007, they currently compete in the Vanarama National League South, which is part of the sixth tier of English football. The team calls Cherrywood Road their home ground.

Farnborough Football Club, reborn in 2007, swiftly rose in English football under Andy Clement, winning the Southern League Division One South & West in their first season. Subsequent years saw managerial changes, with Francis Vines and then Spencer Day taking the helm, navigating the club through financial difficulties and league fluctuations. Despite relegations and budget cuts, Farnborough achieved stability and became debt-free.

In the 2016/17 season, the club narrowly missed first place but triumphed in the play-offs, returning to the Southern Premier League. However, ongoing financial challenges led to further relegations. The 2019/2020 season’s challenges were compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, resulting in a nullified season. A resurgence followed, with Farnborough making significant signings and demonstrating strong league performances. This culminated in a dramatic promotion back to the National League South after a decisive play-off final against Hayes & Yeading United.

Their return to the National League South was marked by a remarkable FA Cup run and a respectable 10th place league finish, indicating a positive direction for the club’s future.
