Worthing hope they have landed a gem in Bournemouth midfielder Jack Wadham.

The 20-year-old has signed on loan and made his debut in the 4-1 win at Truro.

The result, secured after coming from behind, sends Rebels soaring into second place in Vanarama National League south.

They are right back on track after the previous week’s home defeat by Chelmsford and have now won four of their last six games.

Danny Cashman and Ollie Pearce each scored twice for a Worthing team who took charge after half-time.

They took a depleted group out west due to injury but came through with flying colours as Wadham played a full part.

Boss Adam Hinshelwood said: “I thought he was excellent. He comes with real promise from Bournemouth.

“They really rate him highly and he is part of a team who are winning their league at under-21 level.

“He has got that winning mentality.

“You saw in the first half his calmness on the ball and he puts himself in the right areas.

“I think that is what good players do.

“They anticipate where the ball is going to go.

“He had a big hand in the fourth goal. I’m really pleased with his performance.”

Despite the 7.30am departure from West Sussex, Worthing got stronger as the game wore on.

Hinshelwood added: “There is no coincidence our running stats will be up.

“Whenever we get good wins, our running stats are up, it is as simple as that.

“We worked our socks off, especially the lads up the front.”
