The game sparked into life in bizarre circumstances – 30 minutes in. Worthing’s Harrison Male was unable to prevent Will Seager’s back-pass from crossing the goal-line, much to the delight of the Seaford support.

Fortunately for Worthing, two minute after going behind Tom Chalaye smashed home to equalise; repaying the manager’s faith in naming a squad full of youth players.

Worthing’s momentum continued in the second half and was rewarded just 10’ minutes in. Dean Cox was brought down by the on-rushing Mike Platt, earning a penalty. Full of confidence, Chalaye emphatically converted his second.

Marvin Armstrong back from injury, made it 3-1, sweeping home from Kyle O’Brien’s low driven cross.

On the hour mark, Mo Diallo extended the lead as he latched onto a ball from Darren Budd, before finishing with aplomb – beyond the depleted Platt.

Seaford weren’t down and out just yet though. In the 63rd minute, Simon Piper snatched what would turn out to be consolation goal, on the counter.

All hope of a comeback for the visitors was shut-down three minutes later. Budd and Diallo linked up again, before the latter claimed his second goal of the game.

In the 88th minute, Cocoracchio was brought down in the box, following a mazy run. Diallo searching for a hat-rick took the penalty, but struck the bar! Luckily, he spared his blushes by rounding the keeper and tucking home, less than a minute later.
