Worthing boss Adam Hinshelwood believes the performances of on-loan goalkeeper Roco Rees have gone unnoticed so far this season.

The 19-year-old is on loan for the season at the Rebels from Albion.

It is the second season he has been at Woodside Road.

Last season, he was the club before an injury meant he went back to the Seagulls and his Albion teammate Carl Rushworth came in and impressed with his performances.

However, with Rushworth being a regular for Simon Rusk’s U23’s in between the sticks, Rees is making the number one shirt his own at Worthing.

On Tuesday he made some crucial saves, including one in the 73rd minute to spectacularly tip Joe Payne’s dipping effort over the bar.

Despite making some vital stops for his side, Hinshelwood feels Rees does not get the credit he deserves.

He said: “He has probably to be fair to Roco he has gone a little bit unnoticed.

“Omar and all the strikers seem to get all the praise.

“But we really do owe a lot to Roco’s performances.

“I would say in each game there has been two saves which has kept us well within the match and on track to get the three points.

“So we are in a massive debt to him considering how he has been performing.

“But the sign of a good side is that everyone chips in when they are called upon.

“Roco has been called upon the last few games and he has done excellently.”

Rees will be aiming for his second clean sheet of the season tomorrow when Worthing travel to Leiston in their FA Trophy third round qualifying tie.
