The 27-year-old is in his second stint with the club having rejoined the Rebels from Ramsgate midway through last season.

He made his second debut for the club when he came on as a substitute in the Reds’ 1-0 away win at Tonbridge Angels last term and became a virtually ever-present member of the squad thereafter.

Boss Chris Agutter commented, “We are delighted to re-sign Alfie for the coming season. He has played a very important role in Worthing’s recent success, and equally, we know he is an incredibly important player in terms of our planned progression moving forward.

“We are sure that Alfie alongside Cookie, with Haighy behind them between the sticks gives us a great platform to build and maintain attacks, as well as a solid trio that will help us improve our defensive fortunes. Above all else Alfie knows the Club and understands the expectations and standards – another factor that will be very important to us in achieving our goals”.

The defender made 21 appearances for the Rebels last season, cementing his place in the side upon arrival, and now prepares for another term at Woodside.

Elsewhere in the squad, the club can confirm that defender Kodi Lyons-Foster will not be signing a new deal at the club as he searches for a new challenge. The club would like to thank Kodi for his efforts during his time here and wish him the very best of luck in his future career.
