As part of December’s showcase fixture, both Blues and Volenti Academy will play matches at Woodside Road today and tomorrow.

Games will be run for age groups from under-seven to under-16 for a two-day festival of football.

Worthing joint manager Jon Meeney feels it will provide youngsters at the development centre a great chance to showcase their ability.

He said: “It’s a perfect opportunity for players here at Worthing to show what they can do.

“To have Volenti and Chelsea come down is a great privilege and everyone is excited.”

The fixtures run from 9am to 4pm on both days.
