Both players have been with the club throughout pre-season and impressed the Worthing boss in training and friendlies and celebrated signing their deals by helping the Reds to the Isthmian League Charity Shield last night, both starting the 3-0 win over Horsham.

Bobomurodov, who was amongst the scorers last night, was born in Uzbekistan but moved to the UK at a young age.

The 22-year-old attacker can operate anywhere across the front line: “I can play on the left, right or down the centre but I’m happy to play wherever the manager wants me to make an impact”.

He had short spells at Cheshunt and Corinthian Casuals last season before ending the campaign with experience of National League South at Hungerford Town.

“There’s strong teams in the league, compared to Step 3 the tempo is higher, the teams are tougher but we’ll be able to adapt with our style of play and the demands from the manager”.

Charlie Towning

Towning, 25, spent last season with Eastbourne Borough helping them to a sixth placed finish in the National League South.

The versatile midfielder can operate either in a holding or attacking role from the centre of pitch and describes himself as a ‘technical’ player: “Last season I played in a holding role but I can also play in an 8 or a 10 as well; I am a technical player who likes to receive the ball and anytime I’m in and around the box I’ll pull the trigger and try and score whenever possible”.
