WORTHING Football Club are relishing the chance of ending the season with some silverware.

Rebels face Horsham in the Brighton Charity Cup final on Saturday at Woodside Road and joint boss Lee Brace admits it would be nice to cap the season by lifting a trophy.

Worthing will be looking to claim back the trophy off league-rivals Horsham after the Hornets lifted the trophy with a 3-2 triumph last year, thanks to Kerry Kedze’s last-minute extra-time winner.

This will be the third consecutive year the sides have met in the final, with Rebels unable to retain the cup last year, after a 1-0 win the previous season.

Horsham will also be looking for some end-of-season cheer after a torrid campaign has seen them embroiled in a relegation battle with safety only just achieved with a recent good run.

Brace said: “We are really looking forward to it. Horsham have been in good form towards the end of the season so, hopefully, it’ll be a good game.

“It’s a nice way to wrap up the season and even better if we win it.

“There are not too many more games on so, hopefully, we’ll get a few people in to watch, and it’ll be a good one for them.”

Kick-off at Woodside Road is 3pm.
