The Reds advanced to the First Round Proper of the Emirates FA Cup for the first time since 1999 last time out, winning 2-0 against Bath City.

Two second-half goals from Danny Cashman secured their place in the First Round draw where they will now face a trip to National League North side Alfreton Town.

Worthing come into the Sussex Transport Senior Cup this year as defending champions. Will Tillman’s penalty heroics at the AMEX Stadium back in May saw the Rebels overcome rivals Bognor Regis Town in the shootout.
