Rebels crash at home to Dulwich

WORTHING FC went down to their third successive home Ryman League Division 1 South defeat on Saturday (January 22) when they crashed 4-1 at home to Dulwich Hamlet.

Rebels boss Chris White called the defeat “an embarrassment” and added: “It was absolutely shocking.

“I feel sorry for the fans because it was total rubbish.

“I was a limited player when I played but I ran through a brick wall every week and expect people to do the same.

“There’s no excuse for people not working hard. We didn’t do that today and got what we deserved.”

Terry Dodd slotted Worthing into the lead on 18 minutes but Dulwich levelled two minutes later. Callum Saunders was adjudged to have handled in the penalty area and Junior Kadi scored from the spot.

Dulwich went ahead on 39 minutes when Paul McCallum beat Worthing keeper Tony Di Bernardo to Kevin James’ free kick and headed home from 15 yards.

Dulwich had several chances to extend their lead before substitute Nyren Clunis got the third on 78 minutes and Rob Gradwell added a fourth with two minutes to go.
