WORTHING Football Club’s all-time record appearance holder Mark Knee believes good times lie ahead for the club.

Knee, who made 462 appearances for Rebels in two spells, was in action at Woodside Road in the three-team tournament for his new club, Horsham, on Saturday.

The left-back said: “I still follow their results and Jon (Meeney) and Gary (Elphick) are doing a good job bringing the youngsters through and I think they’ll have a good season.

“The future of the club looked a bit touch and go just after when I was last here but George (Dowell) stepped in and saved the club and what a turnaround it’s been here.

“It’s pleasing to see as it would have been a shame to see Worthing go, with all the history here so, hopefully, now they’re on a good footing and can push on.”

On playing on the 3G surface at Woodside Road for the first time, Knee said: “It takes a bit of getting used to but then I’m old school. However, a lot of teams are doing it now so you need to get used to it.

“It will be a good advantage for Worthing next season, though.”
