Worthing club captain Aarran Racine has announced his retirement from playing.

The centre-back suffered his fourth ACL injury earlier in the campaign.

He made 139 appearances for the Rebels, scoring nine goals.

Racine had already been ruled out for the rest of the season.

He will go down in Worthing legend as the man who captained them to the Isthmian premier title, when he was named in the divisional team of the year, and the Sussex Senior Cup.

Meanwhile, Adam Hinshelwood has called for big home support as Worthing lead the play-off pack.

Rebels remain second in in Vanarama National League south after successive away wins at Truro and Tonbridge Angels.

They host mid-table Slough tonight and Torquay, currently sixth, visit on Saturday.

Hinshelwood saw his side win 1-0 at Tonbridge and said: “It sets up two home games brilliantly now.

“We are hoping we can get a nice big following on a Tuesday night because every game is massive for us now.

“We are down to 18 games left, we have two games coming up at home and we really need that support to be there for us.”

Kane Wills misses out this evening but Nicky Wheeler returns from honeymoon.

Hinshelwood said: “We are going to need the squad coming together and it feels like they are now.”
