Worthing Football club are delighted to announce that they are starting a new disability team as of this season. This comes after the team last year folded but with strong interest and players such as Michael, Martin and James wanting to keep a group together a new team will be formed for the upcoming season.
With new coaches Jordan, Paul, Andy and Callum all joining the team they are hopeful of following previous years of success. This success including the Championship team winning the Chelsea F.C disability tournament which meant they got the privilege to play on the hallowed turf and come the end of the tournament lift the trophy.
