White: I like to entertain

Lewis White hopes his speed and directness can add a different dynamic for the team.

Last week the club announced the summer signing of exciting winger Lewis White. In the previous campaign, White was in a Carshalton side who finished 12th in the Isthmian League with the wide man contributing with 11 goals across all competitions.

Known for his explosive play White had this to say following his arrival “When I came to the club I found it very welcoming, fans and staff are very polite and it feels good to be a Worthing player”.

“I’ve been in contact with Adam for a couple of years now and I know he wanted me to join last year which didn’t quite happen, I hope to add a different dynamic to the team with my speed and directness”.

Asked what his favourite position is, Lewis said “I’m right footed but I prefer playing on the left”. “During the game I can drift to the middle of the park and catch teams on the counter, it’s easier to carry the ball from the centre and defenders find me hard to mark”. “I back myself with my speed though so can play anywhere across the frontline and interchange with the other attackers”.

The 23-year-old forward played 34 times for the Robins last season and he has these personal goals for the season “The target is always to get 20 goals as an attacker but that isn’t the be all and end all for me – I like to entertain and get people off their seats”.

“The main thing is getting the three points every week and taking it to the opposition”. “I want people to remember me every-time they come home from a match and enjoy my football”.

White came through the youth ranks at Millwall but despite being involved in the squad a number of times never made a first team appearance before eventually being let go by the Lions in 2019 “I’ve played in non-league for a couple of seasons now, Worthing have been the best footballing side I’ve seen in that period”.

“The standard and style of play is highly organised for non-league and I can see it’s well drilled with top coaching”. “I also spoke with a few players who Adam has helped develop, those off pitch organisation skills and qualities will help us in the National South”

His final word was a message for the fans “I’m raring to get going, I’ve played in the National South before with Dulwich and I can certainly see the team pushing for the upper end of the table – we’re aiming for play-offs with the support and playing style”.

Worthing boss Adam Hinshelwood has been a long term admirer of the talented wide man: “We were very close to bringing Lewis to the club last season and I’m delighted we have added him to our group”. “A really exciting player who I can’t wait to get to know and work with”
