Scott ready to jump into the role as Captain
SCOTT BARLOW admitted it was a proud moment to be named Worthing Rugby Club’s Raiders captain for next season.
The 31-year-old second row has been with Raiders for the last three seasons, after previously playing for Bognor and Chichester, where he was captain.
Barlow replaces Rob Smith, who will not be available every game next season, and he said: “It was a proud moment when Kieron (Dawson; head coach) asked me to be captain as it wasn’t something I expected.

WORTHING U9s WIN INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL
A triumphant U9 team
Over the bank holiday weekend our U9s sent 2 squads to the International Festival to complete in a two day festival.
Both Worthing teams played some good rugby, upholding the core values we expect from our teams in Sportsmanship, Enjoyment, Commitment, Respect and Teamwork.
Our Worthing U9 Blue squad won 5 out of 5 matches over the two days resulting in a final v Barnes. The final match proved to be very tense, but with an aggresive defensive platform the Worthing team managed to win the final 3-1, taking home the winners trophy. A superb squad effort where each member of the squad played a vital part over the two days.
Jacob Knowlton, George Gatford, George Carter, Henry Everett, Miller Cole, Toby Drake, George Hall, Max Booth, Dillon Nevill Lane, Charlie Evans, Sam Mason & Brandon Draude (Joint Captains)

SUMMER TOUCH - REGISTRATION - WEDNESDAY 6TH MAY
Worthing RFC’s Summer Touch league is back again this year. Touch rugby is designed to provide members of Worthing Rugby Club and the wider community with a ‘fun’ activity for both beginners and experienced rugby players over the summer months. New or potential members are also warmly welcomed!
Touch rugby is a fast moving, minimal contact, evasive game that is played throughout the world by men and women of all ages and skill levels. The game is similar to rugby but without the tackling, scrummaging, rucking, mauling, lineouts and kicking.
Registration is on Wednesday 6th May at 7pm.
Informal matches will be arranged after registration, with the league matches starting on the 13th May.
Get your team together, download the attached Registration Form, and come along and start having fun.
