Worthing won all three of their Ryman League Premier Division games and also progressed in the FA Trophy, Sussex Senior Cup and Alan Turvey Trophy competitions.

In the FA Trophy, Worthing came from behind to win 2-1 at National League side Dagenham & Redbridge.

After collecting the award, Worthing joint manager Elphick praised his players for their efforts over the course of December.

He said: “It’s nice to get accolades but this is due to the players in the dressing room. It’s nice to be recognised as doing a good job but it’s all about the players.”
