WORTHING Football Club boss Adam Hinshelwood is hoping his side can put on a show in their remaining five home games this season.

Rebels host Walton & Hersham on Saturday (3pm), with a family fun day theme at Woodside Road.

Hinshelwood believes anyone heading to watch Worthing for the first time will see an entertaining game and said: “For anyone who has been to see us play this season, I don’t think they’d be able to say that they haven’t seen a good game.

“Our home record isn’t as good as we would like but we play good football and create a lot of chances in games.

“There have been some good games already this season and we’ll look to put on a show in our last five home games this season.

“We go into Saturday’s game full of confidence and will look to pick up all three points.”

Hinshelwood is looking forward to the family fun day when the Sussex Steel band will be providing entertainment and there will be a free half-time penalty shoot-out for under-16s.

It is free entry for children under-16, accompanied by an adult, who will be able to get in for the reduced price of £5.

There will also be a special entry offer of two adults for £10.

Hinshelwood said: “It’s what the club needs to be doing, opening its doors to the community and, hopefully, we’ll get some new faces through the gates.

“I know that my family and kids love coming to games and it’s just about telling people that there’s a good club here.”

Rebels dropped out of the Ryman League South Division play-off places on Saturday when their game at South Park was postponed and Whyteleafe won 3-2 at home to Hythe.

Hinshelwood said: “It’s always frustrating to have a game postponed, especially when you’re going into it on the back of a win.

“I still think we’ll need seven wins, maybe a bit more, from our last 12 games to get a play-off place and we’re looking forward to the challenge.

“There’s us and Whyteleafe up there and we’ve still got to play Whitstable and Guernsey, who both might be thinking they can nick the last place.

“It’s down to us to make sure we are the team who picks up enough points to get the last place.”
