The last time these two met at Woodside, Worthing were able to scrape three points in a nine-goal thriller. It was 5-4 to The Rebels that day, however this afternoon was a much more routine display, for Hinshelwood’s men.

Ollie Pearce’s perfect penalty for things underway for the hosts, on the 22’ minute mark, after Joel Colbran was brought down in the penalty area.

Worthing’s continued pressure after the first goal paid off too. After chances for Reece Meekums and Callum Kealy, the latter doubled Worthing’s advantage just 10 minutes before half time; sweeping home from Meekums’ cross.

The game was sealed by Worthing’s main man – Pearce, after a slow start to the second half, in the 67th minute. Pearce smashed the ball in off the post with aplomb, making it 6 goals in his last 3 games. Further proving just why he is the club’s top goalscorer.

Overall, a relatively comfortable afternoon for The Rebels who cruise through to the fourth round of The Sussex Senior Cup.
