The Reds go into the new year having finished the last in the best possible way – beating arch rivals Bognor Regis Town 3-1 at Nyewood Lane:

Despite the game being postponed 24 hours and going behind through a Rocks goal from Jody Mongoy, Worthing were far from phased as they fought back with a goal from Callum Kealy and a brace from Ollie Pearce against his former club.

Meanwhile, visitors Horsham ended the year in 13th place, losing to promotion-hunting Lewes by three goals to one with a squad including former Worthing men Steve Metcalf, Harvey Sparks and Will Miles.

Recent Meetings

The two sides last met almost two years ago in the 2019-20 Sussex Senior Cup quarter final:

The Hornets found themselves 2-0 up inside the first 30 minutes, but a second half brace from Ollie Pearce and a goal from Reece Meekums in the last ten minutes completed a remarkable comeback from Worthing.
