Friendly Tuesday 23rd July, 2019

The home side go into the match having scored 15 goals in four matches away from home this summer, on the back of a 4-2 victory up at Three Bridges last weekend which included a sublime solo effort from trialist Marvin Armstrong.

The midfielder has impressed many of the Worthing faithful throughout pre-season thanks to good performances away to Lancing and also in the 8-1 win at Selsey.

Meanwhile the visitors, managed by former Worthing midfielder Aaron Hopkinson, are undefeated so far in their pre-season campaign, making the trip to Woodside seven days after beating Charlton Athletic XI 2-0 at The Oval and previously holding Isthmian South East division side Whitehawk to a 1-1 draw.
