Reds cross Bridges in pre-season clash

Worthing Football Club continue their pre-season campaign with a trip to Crawley to face Three Bridges at Jubilee Walk this afternoon.

The Reds are currently unbeaten since the return of football amid the COVID-19 pandemic, with their 2-2 draw to Chichester City on Tuesday being their first failure to win a game since the restart.

Meanwhile, Three Bridges enjoyed two wins in two successive nights, starting with a 4-3 victory against Saltdean United on Tuesday which included goals from former Worthing men Curtis Gayler and Hayden Skerry, followed by a 1-0 win at home to Shoreham a day later.

Fixtures between the two sides have served up feisty affairs in recent years, including a 6-2 thriller at Jubilee Walk in the 2014-15 season which saw Gayler net four for Worthing, and two red cards given to former Mackerel men Matt Whitehead and Jamie Crellin for Three Bridges.

The match will be played in front of a maximum crowd of 400 spectators, and in order to ensure maximum safety at this afternoon’s fixture, Three Bridges have issued the following procedures in spite of COVID-19:
