Rebels lose to Sittingbourne

WORTHING FC suffered a 2-1 defeat at home to Sittingbourne in Ryman League Division 1 South on Saturday (April 2).

Rebels went ahead on nine minutes when Luke Gedling latched onto Tom Manton’s pass, rounded the keeper and fired past two defenders on the line.

Sittingbourne drew level on 27 minutes when Ryan Golding raced onto a long ball and fired home into the top corner from 25 yards.

Golding got his second eight minutes later, before Worthing were denied an equaliser in the second half by several excellent saves by Sittingbourne keeper Matt Redd and Terry Dodd saw an injury-time header hit the bar.
