WORTHING Football Club suffered defeat overseas this afternoon as they went down 4-1 away at Guernsey in the Ryman South Division.

Rebels, who had a 6am meet this morning ahead of catching flights from Gatwick, conceded three goals in the last 14 minutes as Ross Allen netted a hat-trick to put a gloss on the scoreline.

The hosts led 1-0 at half-time through Matt Loaring’s 27th-minute strike, but Dan Turner levelled things up in the 51st minute.

Allen’s first goal came in the 76th minute to put his side ahead. He notched from the penalty spot on 86 minutes and then added a third in injury-time.
