Danny Cashman has taken Worthing’s name on to daytime national radio.

Now boss Adam Hinshelwood hopes we hear more about the former Albion frontman as he puts his career back in an upward direction.

Cashman was picked out by presenter and comedian Charlie Baker on TalkSport after his two goals helped beat Torquay 4-2 in their most recent home game.


They are back at home tomorrow as Dover visit the Sussex Transport Community Stadium.

Torquay fan Baker, presenting the afternoon show alongside Paul Hawksbee, asked for listeners to get in touch with tales of “annoying players” after telling them about Cashman, who signed for Rebels early this season.

He said: “Very nice little stadium. Nice bit of the country and they are a good side.

“Well set-up, energetic, young, played in a certain style and it worked.

“They beat us 4-2, we couldn’t cope with them particularly well.

“And they had a player who was one of those.

“As a crowd you are furious with them.

“They are quite good, about 5ft 3ins, little lollipops, low centre of gravity, in and out of our players.

“Scored two good goals and, when we were giving him a bit, he was giving us the score with his fingers.

“Cashman was his name. His celebration was flipping out cash.

“He was just annoyingly good for the level.

“It was like when you used to play in the playground one of the players was quite good and could run in and out of you with a tennis ball or whatever, just taking the Mickey.

“You’re playing for Worthing mate! He has drifted down the leagues.

“I was furious with him because he was good as well. Too good for the level!”

Cashman, who came through the Albion youth ranks alongside players such as Teddy Jenks, Haydon Roberts and Marc Leonard, is certainly looking full of confidence.

Hinshelwood said: “He has got the slicked back hair and the hairband and the look that might annoy other teams’ supporters, especially when he scores goals against them.

“But he is a nice kid and he wants to progress in his career.

“He has had a few setbacks but hopefully we can help him kick on.

“He needed to show what he can do as a player.”

Cashman linked up with Worthing after parting company with Coventry City and is on board for the rest of the season.

He has struck up a good partnership with Ollie Pearce in attack and his radio mention did not go un-noticed.

Hinshelwood added: “A bit was said about it before training, nothing more than that.

“Him and Ollie are really working hard and coming into a run of form.

“He is with us until the end of the season and then I think it will depend on what league we are in.

“If we were to go up, there might be a chance we could keep him.

“But he is ambitious and wants to kick on in his career.

“He enjoys how we play and it really suits him.

“He has really matured this year.

“He is working harder and really on board with what we want as a group.”
