Sussex League Champions & Sussex Trophy Winners
Sussex Trophy Final – Worthing 32 – Hove 10
Our coaches have always placed an emphasis on everyone training together for as much time as possible to help develop the entire squad. This inclusive approach has helped us retain so many players since they first started playing at U6, it has also contributed to the steady increase in our squad size.
We have been able to consistently field 2 competitive teams through the Mini’s years (u6-12) where as well as winning local tournaments we were Sussex County age group champions several times and won the prestigious Premiership Land Rover Cup competition in consecutive seasons.
We have followed up on our success in the Mini’s by topping our Pools in consecutive seasons (U13 and U14) in the Juniors, losing only 2 matches in doing so.
We are now looking forward to playing in the U15 Sussex League competition where our A’s are drawn in the ‘A’ league and our Development squad are playing in the ‘C’ league against other club’s A teams.
To further develop the players and to give them more game time experience we arrange ‘friendly’ fixtures. We look further afield to seek out new and strong opposition, travelling beyond the Sussex border and inviting clubs from surrounding counties to come to Worthing to play us. Details of this seasons league and friendly fixtures will be posted here soon.
We always welcome new players, whether experienced or new to the game, so if your son would like to join a friendly and successful squad please contact: Nick (email@example.com), Chris (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Fred (email@example.com)
If you are a club who would like to arrange a friendly match (‘A’ or Development) please use the same contact details as above.
