Wills Return Confirmed

Worthing Football Club can confirm the permanent signing of former captain Kane Wills.

The midfielder had agreed a season-long loan from Dorking Wanderers this time last year but was recalled before kicking a ball. 12 months on he’s agreed to return on a permanent basis following the expiration of his contract at Meadowbank.

He does so off the back of helping Wanderers secure promotion from the National League South via the play-offs, coming off the bench to have a hand in the winning goal in a thrilling 3-2 win Ebbsfleet United in the final last month.

The 32-year-old has plied his trade at step 2 of the non-league pyramid ever since leaving Woodside Road in 2017, firstly with Eastbourne Borough before eventually joining Marc White’s team in the summer of 2020, thus bringing with him vital experience of the level Adam Hinshelwood’s team now find themselves in.

The Worthing boss commented: “We’ve added experience right through the spine of the team –  Kane is another one has the knowhow of the level we’re going into”.

“He’s an extremely fit lad who’ll be a good role model for the rest of the team”.
