Worthing FC 125th Anniversary Fans’ Day
This Saturday Worthing FC take on Merstham in the Ryman Division One South at the A2B Stadium, Woodside Road.
The club, originally founded in February 1886, will be celebrating its 125th anniversary with the annual “Fans’ Day”, and there are a number of things taking place for supporters including: a penalty shoot-out competition, bin it to win it, a bouncy castle and face painting for the kids, and a raffle in which you could win up to £125.
Although there will be much reminiscing about previous days of glory, legendary players, and landmark occasions, the current team are still determined to achieve success this season.
Current Rebels captain Tony Timms this week gave an exclusive interview, which is a major feature in Saturday’s official matchday programme.
It is a very interesting and entertaining read as Tony gives his opinions on everything from whether Arsenal can beat Barcelona in the Champions League next week, to whether Worthing can make the play-offs this season and gain promotion to the Ryman Premier Division.
Within the interview, which will be exclusively available in full in Saturday’s programme, he urged the club’s supporters to "keep believing in a young side".
Entry for what could turn out to be a very important match for the Rebels will be reduced from the normal prices to just £5.00 for adults and £3.00 for concessions with all under 16s going free.
It is certainly not an afternoon to be missed, and with Brighton & Hove Albion and Portsmouth both playing away this weekend, now is the ideal opportunity to come along and support your local club on a momentous day.
