Former Albion academy goalkeeper Roco Rees has rejoined Worthing.

Rees had a stint on work experience at the Rebels while with the Seagulls and then secured a contract with Brentford B.

He will now work with goalkeeper coach John Keeley.

Worthing boss Adam Hinshelwood said: “He’s a local lad who enjoyed an excellent loan spell with us previously.

"I’m really excited to see how he develops under Keelo’s guidance.

“He comes to us with lots of professional, full time experience but now is the time he needs to play regular senior football to continue his development.”

Rees is likely to start the season as first choice after Worthing lost Harrison Male at the end of last season.

Former Worthing and Hastings boss Gary Elphick has joined the coaching set-up at Rebels.
